Get an exclusive look on and off-stage with Adekunle Gold, as he kicks off the European leg of his 'Catch Me If You Can' tour at a sold-out 02 Brixton Academy show.
Adekunle Gold’s story can best be summarized in one word: evolution. Bursting onto the scene with his debut album Gold five years ago which had strong roots in his native Yoruba folk music, Adekunle Gold, now affectionately known under the moniker AG Baby has won the hearts and minds of many with hit tunes such as “Sinner” ft Lucky Daye and “High” ft Davido. His headline show was a celebration of this evolution and showed that despite looking ostensibly different, here was the same man we met on his debut album.
The sold-out show at Brixton Academy was met with roadblocks but that did not derail the “5 Star singer” from spreading love and light on stage with special guests, Davido, Nao, and his wife, among others. It was particularly moving to see AG gift a close friend with a Rolex to show that the money hasn’t changed his heart for people. The London show kicked off the European tour and after its success, the sky is the limit for sure!
We’ve got an exclusive look backstage with AG, as well as capturing the big show. Dive in!
