AG Live: An Experience With The Man Of Gold
“Heard great things about Adekunle Gold and the 79th Elements last night. I’ve watched them perform twice, and I know I cheated them because they delivered more than what I paid for,” a fan said!
This comment is an apt description of all the thousands of mindblowing reviews about the unprecedented 3-night residency.
After a ‘successful’ year with his sophomore album, About 30, and the sold-out concert held at London’s Indigo, O2 arena, on June 29, 2018, Adekunle Gold decided to dazzle his fans for three days at the TerraKulture, Lagos.
A ‘gold plated’ move by Adekunle Gold and his crew.
Adekunle Gold went ahead with the unusual 3-day back-to-back concert to deepen an intimate relationship with his fans and also create a victory lap for the effort he has put into the year.
Fans were kept spellbound in karaoke style sing-along, as the Afropop singer made sure he kept most of them on their feet as he performed his hit songs and some of his latest songs from his most recent album ‘About 30.’
One of such songs which the audience screamed along to, is these lines from ‘Beautiful Night’.
Oh ooh ooh, Iwo ni mo fe o,
Oh ooh ooh, Cinderella mi o
Oh ooh ooh o
Oh ooh ooh, ololufe mi o
Oh ooh ooh, Wa pami bi oti o
Oh ooh ooh, Babey babey o
Oh ooh ooh o, Omoge o
Oh ooh o
The three-day concert featured live performances that further accentuated the talent that Adekunle Gold is and the depth of his passion for his craft.
By carefully selecting the artist that came to perform at the concert, putting emphasis on talent instead of popularity, Adekunle Gold showed he cared about the doing things right.
Aramide, WurLD, Dyo and Sir Dauda dished out outstanding performances with surprise performances from Reekado Banks, Falz, and Simi.
On Saturday, an extremely rare sighting of the indie pop legend and according to Adekunle Gold, his idol, Asa, who joined him on stage to harmonize with his vocals on ‘Ire’, maybe a pointer to another remix of the song.
“This guy made my life”, Adekunle Gold recounted while he introduced his former Boss, Olamide, who first signed him to YBNL Nation.
In the end, a lot of his fans, who had to endure mindless hours in the traffic to see him perform on stage, left TerraKulture with no regrets.
