The Golden King by his own admission, rave of the moment artiste, Adekunle Gold has released new promotional pictures as one of his many strategies of branding with the keynote revolved around expressing all facets of his life.
As the pictures well represent, Adekunle Gold displays an unmistakable Afrocentric, cultural vibe From his beautifully patterned and colourful shirts to his golden coloured robe, there are discernible elements of his African identity. From his signature Adire to the map of Africa accessory on his neck, the identity of the singer is definitely unquestionable.
Most striking is the image where he appears donning a golden robe with musical instruments surrounding him. The contrast between the keyboard and the local drums make another emphatic statement.
The artiste does not make any attempt to hide that there is foreign influence in his music but by the number of drums and other African musical instruments evident in the picture, there is no mistaking the fact that his Yoruba culture and African identity bears heavily upon his foreign influence.
Finally, one cannot but marvel at how he expresses the passion for his gift through the colourful images of him performing and clutching his microphone . Adekunle Gold is one artiste that is determined to keep music and art lovers alike spellbound for a very long time!
