Disclaimer: This is not my real face.
I am not a savage I promise. And yes I do respect the sanctity of art on display. But it’s not every day you sneak into a room full of A-List celebrities successfully or get to see an art exhibition right outside of it. So you can imagine my luck when I successfully pulled off both sneaking in and ogling high art at Adekunle Gold’s very private album Listening party at Oriental Hotel last Thursday.
After pushing some Naira notes into a bulky bouncer’s palms, he ushered me past the protocol officers who were vetting everyone’s invitations. Then I followed my new bouncer friend through a flight of stairs and into the makeshift red carpet room where guests and media people were taking interviews.
It took a few seconds to spot it, but all the art from Adekunle Gold’s album booklet were also on display in this room. But in case you missed it, we’ll tell you why this art is so important.
As part of promotion for Adekunle Gold’s Gold album, the singer revealed that physical copies of the album will be sold with tied-in poetry by Gbemi Ero-Phillips and art by Aniekan Brendan. Albeit a couple of art and poetry pictures that was shared on by Adekunle Gold’s twitter account, many are yet to catch a glimpse of what the physical copy of the album fully holds.
But look no further because courtesy of Yours Truly, here are pictures of all the yet to be sold art from the album that was still on display when we crashed the party.
You can still grab a copy of the album for yourself to get a more personal feel and of course to read the adjoining poetry. But just because we want you to die of jealousy, you must know this party was even more lit on the inside.
