I Was Worried And Scared Because My Music Is Different – Adekunle Gold

Posted by Oluwatobi Ibironke on May 20, 2018 in News · 1 Comments


Adekunle Gold has made a name for himself by making urban high life music in an industry where pop music is the hottest thing. The singer recently spoke with Sunday Scoop where he revealed that it wasn’t a very easy decision for him to take.

During his interview with Sunday Scoop, Adekunle said;

“I feel very happy that alternative music is getting better acceptance in the industry. Music is very wide and there is no reason to limit ourselves to just a part of it. Initially, I was worried and scared because my music is different. I wasn’t really sure if I would be able to connect to the audience. I had some fears but I decided to stay true to myself. It is very important to believe in yourself and to have confidence in your abilities. There were many times that I was turned down and I felt like giving up. So, it hasn’t been an easy task. I am thankful for all that I have been able to achieve in the industry so far. I believe that if you are consistent, it would ultimately pay off.”

On if he still does graphics design, Gold said;

“I still do that but just for myself alone. There is no time for me to engage in it on a larger scale.”

  1. If you don’t feel like being a snake oil salesman, go into computer programming, something like software development (note: NOT the person who fixes problems with school computers). You can learn to code in a matter of months and get a job that could have taken years of college. If you’re very hardworking and talented, you could land a position with a $150,000-200,000 a year salary within several years, which could turn to a million with a few years of saving, but more appealingly for some people, you also open yourself up to the startup world, where your salary might be more like $50,000 a year but after 4 years you might sell the company and become worth millions. My guess would be that most self-made millionaires under the age of 35 either work in finance/law/professional services, or are early-stage startup founders.
