Adekunle Gold, a Nigerian singer, has come through with the visuals to ‘Okay’, a track of ‘Afro Pop Vol. 1’, his third studio album.
In the video, which was released on Thursday evening, the 33-year-old music star croons about his resolve to remain uncompromising as regards his standards despite the gimmicks of his detractors.
The visuals, directed by 1ofmyguys, starts with the music star having a sumptuous meal somewhere in his neighborhood as he lyricises his thoughts in Pidgin, English, and Yoruba.
Adekunle Gold had earlier addressed observations from fans with respect to his sound switching from highlife to pop.
“With the album that I released, I have three albums so far. There have been changes. It was the intention. ‘Gold’ was more of highlife. About 30 was an upgrade. A little more pop,” he had said during a chat with journalists.
“During ‘About 30 in November 2017, I already had a name for my third album. I already knew the direction I was going with it. It’s a progression. I wouldn’t call it a total change of sound.
“It’s just growing and the conversations I want to have. I wouldn’t say I tried to change my sound. It makes sense to say I don’t have a sound because I can do anything. ‘Gold’ was highlife. ‘About 30′ was an upgrade with more pop.
“Now, ‘Afropop’ is totally different. Who would think that I can do dancehall, R&B. An EDM-sounding song like ‘Here For Ya’. I’m trying to take music to a new level where people have not. The legacy is, I want to say is I did all.”
