Celebrated photographer TY Bello‘s latest muse for her much talked about portraits is singer, Adekunle Gold. 

The Orente hit maker is looking quite futuristic in a shoot which features pieces of metal accross his body.

She wrote on the inspiration behind the photos

ADEKUNLE GOLD : BECOMING KING

I’m looking forward to attending his coronation .. I got to hear unreleased music while I made his portraits . …Nothing quite like his sound .. He’s the real deal…!He’s about to be crowned and I’m certain.

Im a song writer myself ..so I can tell… Nigeria and indeed the world are about to discover their new favorite genius …One day I’ll be boasting about how I heard those songs before they came out .. The idea for @adekunlegold ‘s portraits came two days before he called me . I had just read about Bezaleel on Exodus 31 .. And how God gave him creative genius to work with Gold , silver and bronze .

I had made some art images that emotionally said everything I wanted but just never felt quite right … Bezaleel’s work spoke to me .. My work was missing some metal .So I began to study the use of metal in sculpture and design ….how to bring that into my work

I was trying to figure out which of my artist friends I’d like to collaborate with when Adekunle Gold’s messages started flooding in . .. He sent me photographs of designs and concepts with gold elements and asked me what I thought … I just smiled .. God had gifted me beautiful work and had taken time to prepare me .

I tried to stay calm as I started going on about how I was tying to decode Exodus 31 and bring it into

my work .. And roughly described some ideas that I had for his album art .. I didn’t need to say much more .. He was completely in .

I collaborated with Sobukola Oluwanisola , an artist friend of mine and we decided on using recycled metal built into crowns and deconstructed as pieces for the portraits .

So here are our portraits Rustic and futuristic .. Our Adire clad .. King explorer ..Ready to launch !!#tybellophotography #adekunlegold #gold #music #collaboration #manandmetal

The year kicked off to a petty start on January 1st when Olamide dragged Don Jazzy at the Headies Awards and Twitter over the Next Rated Award which he felt his artiste Lil Kesh should have won.

Yesterday June 19, was Father’s Day around the world.

In honour of the day PSquare‘s Peter Okoye spoke about being a father and bonding with kids. The pop star who has two kids with his wife Lola Omotayo shed some light on how being a dad has impacted him, his parenting style and how he wishes he had his kids earlier!

Saying,

I wish that I had my children earlier; I was with their mum for years before we got married. I even had them before we got married.  If I had them a long time ago, we would relate more like siblings. If they were teenagers for instance, they would know that their dad is a celebrity and can learn certain things on their own.

When he was Governor & Senator, Yerima sported a beard and always wore traditional Northern Hausa clothing so you can imagine our shock when he was recently spotted in Abuja all suited and booted and on top of that…clean shaven! Yerima is no longer #BeardGang.

Maybe it’s the Buhari dispensation that forced this “change”.

As Wizkid Calls Her Out For Lying. Was It Wrong For Seyi Shay To Say Drake Hijacked One Dance From Him

final-53.jpg


Seyi Shay keeps putting her foot in her mouth! I don’t understand why a seasoned artiste of her calibre would keep making these blunders…I mean she was trained by Matthew Knowles – Beyonce’s father for heavens sake!

The super talented singer is currently in Jamaica to promote her album and while there she appeared on a TV show Onstage TV which is where she said Drake‘s “One Dance” which secured him his first Billboard Number 1 song is actually Wizkid‘s song and the Canadian rapper “stripped” a lot of the song away!

Word on the streets in the music industry is that Wizzy gave Drake the song because Drake did not charge him for appearing on his Ojuelegba remix and let’s not forget that the song also gave Wizzy his first Billboard Number 1 as well as introducing to an entire mainstream US & Global audience that he could not have reached with Drake’s help!

The designer shared posts on Instagram stating that Abdulahi walked away and went back to window cleaning. It was discovered that he had no other skills other than window cleaning, so he was enrolled into the National Open University to continue his education. Then he was also given the opportunity to learn other skills including tailoring but then disappeared after that discussion.

His reason being that his life was not transformed overnight and even went ahead to make it a tribal issue stating that it was because he was Yoruba and not Igbo.

Some people have no idea when they have a good thing in front of them.
