Adekunle Gold Tells Apple Music About Stepping Into Fatherhood
It’s such an interesting journey for me. Every day I look at her and I’m obsessed like, “Will this feeling ever go away?” I doubt that it ever will. Being a girl dad is a such a responsibility that I’m so excited to take on. It feels good to know that I’m raising a queen in this crazy world and then generally, it is influenced… Like some of the songs that I’ve written for new projects, that is not out yet, you know.

Adekunle Gold Tells Apple Music About Being Compared to Other Artists
If I sit here and say, “There’s no pressure,” I’ll be lying. And that’s because all of these things happen. You release a project that you worked on all your… like for like two years of your life, and then you put it out there and end up comparing it to somebody else. You might think it’s okay to just put anything out there to bring somebody down. You don’t know how they deal with things. You know what I mean? You don’t know how people deal with things. Creatives are spiritual people. We need encouragement. So, I think we should desist from comparisons. Just enjoy the projects, just enjoy different artists, and then let’s move the culture forward.

Adekunle Gold Tells Apple Music About Whether There Will Be an Afro Pop Vol. 2
I think there might be. This is exclusive just for you guys. Yeah, I think that might be one. So, since 2018 I’ve been working on this album. In the middle of this one, I already started working on another album again. I have put it in my laptop right now, just waiting to release. So I’m really excited. Yeah. So there might be volume two. You never know.

LootLove Shares Her Proverb of the Week
There’s a quote that I once saw years ago. It was on a billboard, and funny enough, was an alcohol brand. It said, “The whole world steps aside for the man,” and in this case, I’d like to say woman, “who knows where she’s going.” And I think that’s exactly what’s happening with women right now. We’re no longer asking for permission. We’re no longer waiting for doors to open. We’re pushing them open. We’re moving forward. We’re making noise. We’re making statements.
