Fast rising urban highlife act, Adekunle Gold has opened up on how the deal to become a part of
Olamide-led YBNL came to be.
Adekunle, whose singles, ‘Orente’ and ‘Sade’ continue to dominate the airwaves, disclosed to NET in an exclusive interview that prior to the deal, he had a business relationship with the label.
‘I have been doing stuff with Olamide before I was signed. I am a graphics designer and brand developer and I actually designed the YBNL logo. I have done a couple of designs for Lil Kesh, Viktoh and Olamide himself at some point.’
He further disclosed that Olamide was impressed with his debut single, ‘Sade’ which made the deal
‘When I recorded Sade, Olamide and the entire YBNL soldiers were impressed. He called me a day before the OLIC (Olamide Live In Concert) and that was when I discovered the entire team were feeling the jam.
Olamide later called me that he was interested in working with me. That was how the deal came through.’
