YBNL Adekunle Gold has announced the release date of his album to be July 28, 2016.
The Musician who as also been breaking the net with his graphics art’s is set to release his debut album calls the album year “The Gold Season” and has this to say…
“In the Gold album, I bare my soul to the world. I want people to experience what I felt while creating the album. Also, I hope that in the coming years, my music will still sound as fresh as they did the day they were released.”
The singer previously revealed he would be pushing his debut album release date until early July after the Ramadan season which was expected to last from June 6, 2016 to July 5, 2016.
He made this known via a Now O’ Clock podcast hosted by Wole in an episode 1 tagged “Creatives and Criticism” with Adekunle Gold.
“I am pushing it forward a bit because of Ramadan, it was supposed to drop for June 1 before, but apparently it occurred to me that my muslim friends don’t listen to music during Ramadan, so it makes sense to push it forward because of them as well, so by God’s grace in July after Ramadan, and all of us can enjoy it together,” the singer said.
