Adekunle Gold Reveals How President Buhari’s Daughter Inspired Album Title
YBNL’s Adekunle Gold has revealed how President Muhammadu Buhari’s daughter, Zahra inspired the title of his forthcoming debut album.
Adekunle Gold, who is getting set to release his first studio album aptly titled ‘GOLD’ stated how confused he was getting a befitting name.
“When the thought to start working on album came, I was not sure what I wanted to call it. I prayed to God (as always) to give me a name. I started talking to my friends to give me ideas. @miss_zbuhari and I were talking about the album title one evening and she mentioned “Gold” amongst many other names, but I dismissed the idea.
“I took my confusion to Twitter and asked friends to suggest a name. Almost everybody suggested “Gold”. Shame didn’t let me go back to Zahra to tell her I’m going with ‘Gold’ until weeks after.”
He also said he shared ideas with TY Bello who gave him a biblical revelations “Spoke to @tybello about my ideas for the album art. She told me she had gotten a revelation 2 days earlier, about Bazaleel of Exodus 31. She didn’t need to explain too much, because I fell in love with the idea almost immediately and started feeling like Bazaleel.”
“I had an amazing time working with @tybello. She’s phenomenal. I was thrilled that she loved the songs on the album, even though they weren’t finished,” he added.
