Adekunle Gold has come a long way from being a graphic artist and a member of a duo band to becoming a household name in the industry today. The singer recently spoke with Sunday Scoop where he revealed that it wasn’t a very easy decision for him to make.
During his interview with Sunday Scoop, Adekunle said;
“I feel very happy that alternative music is getting better acceptance in the industry. Music is very wide and there is no reason to limit ourselves to just a part of it. Initially, I was worried and scared because my music is different. I wasn’t really sure if I would be able to connect to the audience.
I had some fears but I decided to stay true to myself. It is very important to believe in yourself and to have confidence in your abilities.
There were many times that I was turned down and I felt like giving up. So, it hasn’t been an easy task. I am thankful for all that I have been able to achieve in the industry so far. I believe that if you are consistent, it would ultimately pay off. ”
On if he still does graphics design, Gold said;
“I still do that but just for myself alone. There is no time for me to engage in it on a larger scale.”
