Photos: An Unforgettable Album Listening Session With Adekunle Gold

The Nigerian singer came to our offices in Brooklyn to give us a taste of his upcoming album "About 30."

Adekunle Gold's forthcoming album About 30, is well on its way, and we couldn't be more ready for it to drop, especially not after what we witnessed at his intimate album listening party last week.

A small group of fans, influencers and music lovers alike gathered in our very own OkaySpace in Brooklyn to hear the album for the first time, ahead of its release, and we can confirm that it's well worth the wait.

Not only did he preview banging cuts from the upcoming album, but he also treated us to performances of some of our older favorites—turning the jam session into a mini concert as her ran through previous hits like "Work," "Friend Zone" and "Only Girl."


He had folks on their feet dancing and singing at the top of their lungs—we're not even exaggerating. Needless to say it was a party, and if you missed out, don't fret. You can check out what went down Adekunle Gold's About 30 album listening session below, with photos shot by photographer, filmmaker and Okayplayer's Social Media Manager, Laura Alston.
