Adekunle Gold’s Afropop, Vol 1 has been stewing in our playlists since summer 2020 but still packs that old but flavor-filled punch that characterizes well-seasoned bodies of work. Driven by the likes of standouts including Okay, Something Different, Sabina, and Pretty Girl among others, the project remains rooted in the list of albums that ruled 2020. To start the year, he furthers its relevance with the video for Pretty Girl.
Joined by Patoranking whose Rastafarian inflections brings the video to a jarring start, Adekunle Gold serves up his hipster persona, the one that has been driving his evolution in recent times. This persona is responsible for the burst of courage that pushes him to woo his muse. Patoranking also treads the same path as Gold, surrounding himself with culture, color, and verve to drive an easy and impressive passage of his performance.
The Olu The Wave directed video is just in line with Adekunle Gold’s new aesthetic and it’s just as impressive as his evolution.
