WATCH: It took me two years to write the Gold album says Adekunle Gold

18 November 2016, 13:01

Lagos - According to Singer Adekunle Gold  it took him two years to write the songs on his debut album, because he was creating music from his life experiences.

In July 2016, YBNL singer Adekunle Gold released his debut album titled Gold.

The singer, who is currently on his first ever U.S. tour, revealed this during a chat with  Notjustok in the  ‘I wrote the album for two years, I started writing it around May-June 2014. Although I didn’t have a name then, but I kept writing the songs; writing my experiences. I didn’t have a direction back then, so I was just writing whatever came to me. I had written ‘Orente’, ‘Friend Zone’, ‘Beautiful Night’ and others before ‘Sade’, but I decided to drop ‘Sade’ first because it was a cover.’

He also explains how his female friend gave him the idea of what the album title should be. ‘And then when I saw the response that people really liked it, I decided to drop ‘Orente’. At that point, ‘Pick Up’ wasn’t even in the mix. So it was a crazy process for me, because I was waiting to feel something before I write. So when it was time to release the album, I didn’t know what to call it, so I was talking to my friend Zara, and she said, ‘why not call the album GOLD’; I hesitated a bit, but I’m happy we are here now.’
