Adekunle Gold May Leave YBNL – Reports suggest than YBNL Records’ alternative singer, Adekunle Gold, may be quitting the label soon.
The Pick Up singer has risen meteorically after his debut single, Sade, and reports suggest that following his emergence as a star act in the industry, he’d be following in the footsteps of Lil Kesh to move on from the label and stand on his own.
Adekunle Gold reportedly signed a 2-year contract when he joined the label in 2014, and the contract is said to expire in June. The singer already has a good collection of singles already including Orente and the recently-released Ready, and will most likely be dropping his debut album before he leaves the label.
Adekunle Gold, whose real name is Adekunle Kosoko, had first gained popularity on the internet for his skills as a photo editor, photoshopping himself perfectly into pictures with Nicki Minaj, Kim Kardashian and many more. His talent has already been recognized in the music industry, winning the award for Best Alternative Song at the 2015 Hip Hop World Awards.
YBNL boss Olamide must feel bad letting go of his star acts, but he has already begun restocking his label, with new female singer Temmie Ovwasa already announced.
