The Nigerian artist packed-out venues in New York & Washington, D.C. for our concerts.
Last week, OkayAfrica hosted two major shows with Nigerian singer-songwriter Adekunle Gold at NYC's Lincoln Center's Out of Doors summer concert series and Washington, D.C.'s historic Howard Theatre.
Adekunle Gold took over the stage on both nights and filled it with his signature blend of urban highlife and pop, backed by the powerful live sounds of The 79th Element. He had the packed-out crowds singing along and dancing to every song as he weaved together his Yoruba, English and Pidgin English vocals.
The NYC show at Lincoln Center Out Of Doors was kicked off by DJ Poizon Ivy and Olayinka Ehi, and featured surprise appearances from Shirazee, Michael Brun and Moelogo. Despite a little rain interval, the crowd stuck around in full force to watch Adekunle Gold and sing along. The NYC night was hosted by Young Prince and Shernita.
The Howard Theatre show was packed. It kicked off by DJ Jamstarr and singer Desbee, and featured a set from Mannywellz. That evening in D.C. was hosted by Raro Lae.
