Watch Adekunle Gold's New Music Video for 'Before You Wake Up'

The Nigerian artist is back with a video for his romantic single "Before You Wake Up."

Adekunle Gold returns with a new music video for his latest single "Before You Wake Up," which dropped earlier this month.

The love song gets an equally romantic video, with an always smiling Adekunle Gold serenading a special lady in a number of vivid settings and showing his affection for her.

Later in the video the singer also shows off a couple dance moves with a group of friends, before he and his girl ride off together in an expensive car (because it couldn't really be a Nigerian music video without one, could it?) The music video was directed by Foreign Made.

The Sess-produced track is a fitting follow up to the artist's single "Promise," a collaboration with his wife and fellow Nigerian artist Simi, which dropped at the top of the year and beautifully documented their union. Revisit the track here, and check out our interview with the artist from last year about his quest to make timeless music.

Watch Stonebwoy's New Video For 'Tuff Seed'

"People have to realize that they have to be mentally strong and they have to know that they are seeds."

Stonebwoy comes through with the new single, "Tuff Seed."

The uplifting Streetbeatz-produced single sees the Ghanaian star singing about remaining tough and strong when facing life's issues. The accompanying music video for "Tuff Seed" was directed Adasa Cookey.

Stonebwoy recently stopped by Ebro Darden Apple Music Beats 1 radio show to talk about the new single. During that interview he also revealed that he has a new album coming in 2020.

"This story is an emotional one to me with everything that has been happening. I sat back and I got this inspiration," Stonebwoy mentioned in that interview. "People have to realize that they have to be mentally strong and they have to know that they are seeds. No matter what people do to them, or what they go through, they have to get down there, they have to be buried to grow into trees to grow fruit. This is a very inspirational song."
