Adekunle Gold

Adekunle Gold is an award-winning Nigerian highlife singer, songwriter, and graphic designer. A household name in his home country, Gold calls his music "urban highlife" because of its conscious intersections with contemporary pop, electronica, folk, and R&B.

Adekunle Gold was born Omoba Adekunle Kosoko into the royal family of Lagos State, Nigeria, in which he holds the title of prince. He is the nephew of globally acclaimed "Nollywood" actor Prince Jide Kosoko.

In 2014, he issued "Sade," mixed by Nigerian star Simi, setting first Lagos', and then Nigeria's and West Africa's, radio stations aflame with requests and airplay. It became a national hit. He was nominated for Most Promising Artist of the Year at the City People's Entertainment Awards and won Alternative Song of the Year at the Headies for "Sade," as well as Revelation of the Year at the continent's AFRIMA awards.

The singer issued his debut album, Gold, near the end of 2016 in Nigeria and globally in early 2017 as he issued four more singles in quick succession: "Work," Only Girl," "Call on Me," and "Money." The album was picked up for airplay by state-run radio throughout the African continent, as well as European stations in Germany, Norway, the Netherlands, Spain, and England; it eventually reached public and college radio and then streaming in the U.S. and peaked at number seven on the World Music Albums charts. In addition to his first three singles, the album included the hits "No Forget (feat. Simi)" and "Work."
