Adekunle Gold dedicates new video to his late sister.
Nigerian singer, Adekunle Gold has revealed that he dedicated his new music video ”ire” to his late younger sister, Busayo. He shared a picture of the lady and narrated how she was almost like his twin sister cos she was always clinging to him. He also spoke of how much of a good singer she was before she died of heart complication.
Read his words below.
Who is Busayo?
I’ve been getting this question a lot. Busayo is my sister. We lost her in 2011 to a Heart Complication. I’m fiercely protective of my family but I didn’t think I could skip out one of my favorite memories or people in life.
Busayo was symbolically represented by the little girl skipping around me in the video as that is who she was in real life.
She never left my side, matter of fact, she was my younger twin. We looked alike and she could sing for the whole of AFRICA.
In my heart, I believe I sing for the both of us; It was only right that I dedicated the video to her memory…
Recently, the singer was asked about how his girlfriend copes with him getting so many attention from the opposite sex, he said, ”She understands the nature of my job but sometimes, she asks questions. I like to keep my relationship away from the public. What if my girlfriend doesn’t want to be in the limelight? I think people like me because of my music, not because of what I do in my private moments’.
On whether he has plans to have a baby mama, Adekunle Gold said, ”I don’t want that for myself. It will be a disgrace to my family if I have a child born out of wedlock. I can only speak for myself. I was not brought up that way”.
