Singer Adekunle Gold has shared a profound message with his fans meant to motivate them drawn from his own experience.
The husband of award-winning songstress Simi said there were days in his life where he felt broke despite the legions of fans he had.
In a recent newsletter sent to fans, he said, “As I’ve journeyed through my growth and evolution, my friends will tell you that every dime I’ve made on this thing has gone right back into it. I’m thankful for friends and family who have even loaned me their hard earned money for the sake of my dreams.
There were days where the fans were plenty but the pocket was very empty and this wasn’t too long ago. Man I worked so hard to push myself and my creativity, yes Kehinde, I know you get me, but most people didn’t, I actually can’t count the amount of no’s I got.
The feeling of being constantly overlooked, undercooked, disrespected and maligned is not a pleasant one. Don’t let anyone cheat you out of a struggle or a hard experience, ma fi ago alago sise, don’t let social nonsense rush your process.
Struggle, cry, feel the depths of your pain. FEEL IT! It’s only then that you are able to recognize when times are good.”
