On the 26th of July, 2016, I woke up to the frenzy of Adekunle Gold’s album on twitter and I was utterly confused. I specifically set a reminder on my phone in order so that I could be one of the first people to get it. However, Adekunle Gold pulled a Beyonce on everyone and released the album earlier than planned which was a good idea as it got everyone talking.
The YBNL star has held everyone at rapt attention since the release of his cover of One Direction’s Story of My Life which he titled Sade which has received a number of award nominations. He brought out hits back to back with the critically acclaimed Orente, the prayer filled and crowd moving Pick Up and a replica in Ready. With these, there are high expectations for GOLD.
The album opens up with ‘Gold’ setting the tone to what is yet to come. It portrays a young ambitious man who shares the story and inspiration behind his name and the album. Adekunle confidently states that he’s higher than hate in the up tempo track “My Life” laced with Yoruba proverbs and many traditional instrument elements in the beat. A definite party favorite.
The seamless transition to the love songs that we have all come to know and love Adekunle for, commences in the mid-tempo ‘Beautiful Night’ where he paints the picture of a sincere and secure relationship in the serene night and an undying love in the popular ‘Orente’. The pain of heartbreak can be seen in the slow tempo ‘Nurse Alabere’. Meanwhile, ‘Friend zone’ playfully addresses the reality of unreciprocated feelings with a highlife vibe.
In ‘Paradise’, there is a change to a more relaxed R&B feel with the subtle use of strings. Here, the artiste is high on love and does not want to get off that euphoric feeling. The duet with Simi in ‘No Forget’ is one of those songs that you can’t help but love in the album; the back-up, her silky voice, the instrumentals were just in harmony.
Furthermore, in ‘Work’ Adekunle explores a mixture of pop and afro-beat. He preaches that people need to work hard and “stop living fake lives” by wanting things they cannot afford. In Temptation, Adekunle copies a page from P-square’s temptation with the reference to the popular line ‘this na temptation, which leads to confusion’. ‘Ariwo Ko’ has an Indian pop and highlife infusion which is refreshing to hear and a big departure from the beats we have been hearing from the beginning. Here, he cautions newly artistes saying empty barrels make the loudest noise. Noise is not music.
In “Fight for You” he goes after men taking love for granted, declaring that he won’t hesitate to treat your woman better. He then deviates from the usual lover boy next door image in ‘Sweet Me’ by talking about a lady he saw dancing at a party. This track seems like a mere filler for the album.
Now the question is; is this album GOLD just like the name is or gold plated- just a shiny glossy cover with nothing but cheap music. GOLD is not without its flaws Adekunle tried to diversify his sound by slightly mixing it up with R&B as in the case of Paradise and dance hall beats of Ariwo Ko despite this, the album still fell into the usual tones we are used to hearing from him.
Adekunle Gold also exhibited impressive song writing skills as he intricately intertwined golden threads of expressions in English, pidgin and Yoruba to tell a story from the beginning till the end. The album portrayed his diversity in song writing as he covered songs ranging from topics of love to life. He showed that music is one of the best ways to express oneself.
In addition, I believe this album has paved the way to establish the classic Adekunle sound. We at thepgmclub.com definitely certify this album ‘GOLD’.Post Views: 355

Abuja-based act, Suté Iwar has finally released his long-awaited debut album “Paradise.” This is Suté’s first project since his “Leopards” EP, released to good reviews.
A few weeks ago, he came on the PGM Radio Show with Douglas Jekan and Folu Storms to introduce the album and its second single ‘Heartless’ as they also discussed his artistic journey.
This 11-track album finds Suté teaming up with acts outside his Bantu Collective as it features appearances from BarleyAnyHook, Fareeda, Isah and Dorian Starr. All the songs on the album are self-produced, save for ‘Heartless/Space‘ which was produced by Le Mav. The mixing of the project is single-handedly wielded by brother and longtime collaborator, Tay Iwar.
Announcing the album on Twitter a couple of weeks back, Suté wrote, “My debut album ‘Paradise’ is out on the 16th of August. This is for the loved and the unloved. This is for the depressed and the ‘happy’. This is for the underdogs and the champions. This is for ???? & the ??. This one is for you. Stay in the light?”

Exactly a week ago, Remy Baggins gave us a peek into the material he has been working on. And now as promised, the singer-producer has released a new EP titled “Sakura.” This new offering is Remy’s first solo project since his well-received 2019 ‘sextape’, “Hentai” which featured appearances from Ladipoe, Tomi Thomas, Funbi and his frequent collaborator, Dami Oniru.
His fifth project in seven years, “Sakura” contains just four tracks with no guests. The production and engineering were also solely handled by Remy save for ‘As Friends Tho’ which was co-produced by ILLYTHAGREAT.
This project is led by the aforementioned single which opens with Remy daydreaming about his new love interest. He is entirely blown away by the damsel who happens to be his friend. But at this point, Remy wants something much more intimate than mere friendship. He toys with the idea of them being in a romantic relationship and eventually opens up to her. In fact, he is almost sure the feeling is mutual, but she is quick to snap him back to reality.
Regardless of his sweet-tongued promises, she isn’t swayed. Unlike Remy who is starting to catch feelings, she wants to remain just friends… with benefits.
This project comes highly recommended from us at The PGM Club. Enjoy it above.Post Views: 289
