Adekunle Gold, who is presently on tour in the US and Canada, stopped by Tiny Desk to show the audience and fans what to anticipate from the 19-city tour.
The ‘High’ singer performed songs from his album ‘Catch Me If You Can.’ Adekunle Gold gave a stunning version of his 2022 Headies nominated Song of the Year ‘Sinner’ starring Lucky Daye, aided by a powerful live band. He also sang his smash hits ‘Okay,’ ‘Something Different,’ and ‘One Woman,’ which featured American rapper and singer Ty Dolla $ign.
Adekunle Gold joins Alicia Keys, Coldplay, Anderson Paak, and Harry Styles as musicians who have performed on the prestigious NPR Music Tiny Desk stage.
Adekunle Gold mentioned this during his Tiny Desk appearance,
“Music is my life, music has allowed me to communicate and music has showed me that there truly is no limit to creativity. I hope that as we celebrate Black Music Month, Black people in all our varieties of descent realize that there are no boundaries to what we can achieve and create. I hope that we truly see ourselves as the magical creators that we are. Thank you NPR and Tiny Desk for allowing me to create.”
Adekunle Gold’s performance, which showcased his skills as a powerful Afrobeats artist, will be proud of his fans and music enthusiasts.
