Fans of the fast rising singer Adekunle Gold are lamenting over the YBNL act.
His fans, who confirm they love his songs despite them being slow tempo music in a country where fast music sells, said the 2015 All African Music Awards (AFRIMA), Revelation of the Year award winner needs to up his stagecraft.
They are complaining that if there is anything the Olamide Baddo boy needs to learn from his record label boss, it is stagecraft as his stage performances have been tagged dry.
One of his fans who sat behind Naij.com’s correspondent during AFRIMA awards who was full of high expectation from the new singer was disappointed first with his choice of song to perform at the event. She said: “Who cares about Sade, it is not as danceable as Orente.”
This fan along with others was screaming for Orente but alas, Gold left the stage after a dry performance of Sade.
Unlike the complaints about Adekunle Gold’s dry performance, no other YBNL artist has had such a reaction from fans. Lil Kesh and Olamide are known to own the stage while performing and of course they carry their audience along.
Meanwhile, Olamide once claimed that he does not hold onto artists for too long. He stated that YBNL is not a music label but that YBNL only signs artists on a two-year deal.
According to him, YBNL is a movement where young artists are given the platform to success and then move on with their careers elsewhere.
Adekunle Gold fans are urging him to grab the required expertise that will make him last longer in the Nigerian music industry from his label.
