One of Nigeria’s trending singers right now, Adekunle Gold who is signed to Olamide’s YBNL, during a recent interview revealed how he joined the label.
According to Adekunle Gold,he was merely “business friends” with Olamide since he helped the label design the logo and help design most of Lil Kesh and Viktoh’s work after they joined YBNL nation.
I would never have thought that an Olamide would sign me, so there is no way i lobbied or pushed or sent my songs to him to listen to before signing me on the label, it was em.. when I dropped Sade, apparently he liked it and everybody in the YBNL team loved it, so 2days to OLIC concert, the first one ever, he called me to come chill with him at the hotels for rehearsals and everything.
so 2 days after the concert, he called me that he would love to work with me that he thinks my song is a future and he doesn’t want it to change, i quickly took the deal before my guy would change his mind,” he said.
Adekunle Gold is set to drop his debut album this July.
