Adekunle Gold has put out ‘5 Star’, a new single where he opens up on his past health struggles.


The ‘One Woman’ singer took to his social media pages to announce the release on Friday.

In ‘5 Star’, the singer reminisces about his childhood battle with sickle cell anemia and his will to overcome it.

Sickle cell anemia is one of a group of inherited disorders known as sickle cell disease.


It affects the shape of red blood cells, which carry oxygen to all parts of the body.

In sickle cell anemia, some red blood cells are shaped like sickles, becoming rigid and slowing blood flow.

Adekunle Gold’s latest song is produced by Kel P Vibes. The single delivers a perfect blend of pop and highlife.


It also embodies appealing instrumentals backed by the singer’s imposing vocals.

“See I don’t look like wetin I don see/ I will never forget the 90s/ Many Nights I go dey beg for mercy/ Sickle cell been show me crises/ Thank you for the journey/ Oh lord oh lord/If I say my story,” Adekunle Gold sings.

Adekunle Gold gained fame after putting out ‘Sade’, his 2015 hit.

The song is a highlife cover of One Direction’s ‘Story of My Life’.


He has since then established a name for himself in the Nigerian music industry.

Gold has won numerous awards and recognition.

He has four albums to his credit, namely: ‘Gold’ (2016), ‘About 30’ (2018), ‘Afropop’ (2020), and ‘Catch Me If You Can’ (2022).
