My Favorite Afro Beat Summer Album

Since his hit single 'Only Girl' Adekunle Gold has been making waves in the Afro beat charts. With is authentic sound and pure Nigerian Highlife influences i.e. Fela an Yinka Ayefele he has stayed true to a very traditional genre of music synonymous with indigenous people of Nigeria. To me this new project has something for everybody and if I'm being honest his best body of work.

This new album stayed true to his sound while also experimenting with various other different musical tonalities as well as featuring many well know Nigerian artists. He touches on many different subjects from love and lust all the way to how he dealt with fame and his relationships with people on his rise to stardom. He then returns to his original style of feel good highlife music. I definitely have a slight favorite in the song "surrender" but I'll let you all be the judge.

This is a need to listen album. Whether you feel like you need a pick me up or just want something new to listen to this album has that for you. This is indeed a complete package of the sounds of Nigeria. I rate it a 9/10.
