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.
