Rising artiste and YBNL signee, Adekunle Gold whose love themed song, Orente is fast becoming a favorite among music lovers. He has revealed, in a recent interview with newsmen that he didn’t lobby to be signed by Olamide.

“When I dropped Sade, Olamide apparently liked it and the whole of YBNL crew. So he called me and said he really likes my sound and he doesn’t want me to change my style. He later said he will like to work with me,” Said the hit artiste.

“I didn’t see it coming, I didn’t lobby for it or do whatsoever about it .I have always wanted someone to believe in me, I have been looking forward to that since. I just took it that way and the story changed,”

he insisted. The singer who also doubles as a graphics designer also explains the reason he was signed “I guessed it just worked because my music is indigenous too and then my sound identifies with the streets. I have been working with Olamide, I designed the YBNL logo and I have done a couple of deigns for the label before I got signed last year.

He further disclosed that Olamide was impressed with his debut single, ‘Sade’ which made the deal go through.
