Award-winning Nigerian highlife singer, songwriter, Adekunle Gold is set to perform his first ever live concert at Destination Africa, the Waterfront Karen, Nairobi on November 13th.

Gold became a household name in the music industry after shooting into the limelight in 2014, following the release Sade, a cover of One Direction’s Story of My Life. Mixed by top Nigerian singer and songwriter Simi, he won an award for it at Nigeria’s Headies the very next year for Best Alternative Song.

He signed to Olamide’s YBNL Nation label, and issued two Simi-mixed charting follow-ups in Orente and Pick Up before releasing Gold, his debut long player in 2017 that peaked at number seven on the World Albums Chart, while his sophomore outing, 2018’s About 30, peaked in the top ten.

His current album, Afro Pop Vol 1, has garnered over 200 million streams, becoming his third best performing stint.
