Listen to Adekunle Gold's New Single 'Jore' Featuring Kizz Daniel

The Nigerian artist is back with his first track of the year.

Nigerian artist Adekunle Gold is back with his first single of the year, "Jore," featuring Kizz Daniel.

The artist stays true to form on the Pheelz and Major Banggz-produced track, delivering a calming love ballad with emotive vocals layered atop the song's mid-tempo production.

The Nigerian artists sound crisp and in sync as they sing about love. The artist also shared an image of him and Kizz, which appears to be from a possible video shoot.



Adekunle Gold released a string of singles in 2019, including "Young Love," and perhaps his biggest track of the year (and a personal favorite) "Kelegbe Megbe (KnowYour Level)," and the track "BeforeYou Wake Up."

He headlined OkayAfrica's Lincoln Center Outdoors in the summer, and shared a playlist of some of his favorite songs.

Kayode Kasum’s Quarantine Watchlist

From 'Wives on Strike' to 'Goodwill Hunting' here's what the Nigerian filmmaker is watching while stuck at home in Lagos.

Kayode Kasum, like most filmmakers, has been stagnated by the coronavirus pandemic. The director behind the blockbuster Sugar Rush and the critically acclaimed Oga Bolaji was working on the post-production of his upcoming movies, The Fate of Alakada: Party Planner and Kambili—a collaboration between FilmOne Entertainment and Chinese Huahua Media— when the Nigerian government announced the lockdown order.

While post-production on Alakada has concluded, the stay-at-home orders have delayed work on Kambili. "Since the team cannot meet at a single point, we are moving hard drives left and right," he says to me over the phone from his home in Lagos. "It is a challenge, but the beautiful thing about a challenge is, when you make it work, it is fulfilling."

Kasum has turned to books and films for an escape from the unpleasant realities of the pandemic. "I have been reading Elnathan's books: Born on a Tuesday and Becoming Nigeria," he tells me. "I have also been reading film directing books, Directing Actors by Judith Weston." However, Kasum longs for the movies. "I miss going to the cinemas; I miss that experience," he says. "There are times during this pandemic that I'm like 'na wa o, I wish I can go to the cinema.'"

Below are five films he recommends you watch during this pandemic.
