We have listened to YBNL artiste and fast rising Nigerian Urban Highlife singer Adekunle Gold fuse his unique sounds of highlife-meets-afro-rock-and-pop in his new single titled “ORENTE” a follow-up single to his hit track ‘Sade’.
Presently the urban High-life singer has released hits back to back and has been on massive airplay in the country. Adekunle Gold has displayed his excellent music skills and thereby is of great acceptance in the country today and has truly been appreciated by his fans
Adekunle Gold immediately followed the release of the single with a video that was shot in the ancient city of Osogbo in Osun State
According to Mex and Adekunle Gold who directed the video The video captures the essence of the ancient city and is shot across different locations of the city with scenes bearing images from notable landmarks of the state such as the Erin Jesha waterfalls, the Nigerian Railway Corporation Osogbo, Osogbo City Stadium, Osogbo market, and the famous Nike Art Gallery and Museum.
Its truly an awesome visual to the single and something ill love to watch over and over again, nice location and nice shots
But i expected more depiction of ‘Orente’ instead Adekunle’s Orente looked more like our Modern day city babes.
As a high-life singer i expected more of the old skool feel of what defines an ‘Orente’.
Never the less. ‘Orente’ still remains one of my best and will still be on my playlist anytime any day.
