Nigerian award-winning musician, Adekunle Kosoko popularly known as Adekunle Gold has opened up about his difficult journey in the music scene, while expressing gratitude to his friends and family for their support.
The Afropop singer made this known in a newsletter to fans who are subscribed to his mailing list. He wrote, “I am particularly thankful for the journey. I know that our world celebrates the destination but I am learning daily that life really is about how we journey.”
On his growth as a music act, the “Sinner” crooner revealed his struggles, citing the rejections and tough days of his career.
“As I’ve journeyed through my growth and evolution, my friends will tell you that every dime I’ve made on this thing has gone right back into it. I’m thankful for friends and family who have even loaned me their hard earned money for the sake of my dreams.

“There were days where the fans were plenty but the pocket was very empty and this wasn’t too long ago.
“Man I worked so hard to push myself and my creativity, I know you get me, but most people didn’t, I actually can’t count the amount of no’s I got. The feeling of being constantly overlooked, undercooked, disrespected and maligned is not a pleasant one,” Adekunle Gold said.
Fondly called AG Baby by his fans, the singer recently announced on social media that his fourth studio album, “Catch Me If You Can” will be released in February 2022.
Meanwhile, his Amapiano-styled hit track, ‘High’ featuring DMW boss Davido is topping music charts and buzzing the airwaves.
