    Wonder why the artists under YBNL never renew their contracts?
    First Lil Kesh…(After Olamide Baddo fought the whole world + Don Jazzy)..
    Now…Adekunle Gold…
    Just thinking out loud…

    All the best to Adekunle Gold…your hussle will pay off!

    Don’t think it’s a renewable contract. Cause in a recent radio interview, Olamide stated that YBNL is just a platform for his signees to learn and grow and he would want them to grow beyond being under the label hence the 2 years contract only.

      That makes sense. All the artists that come from YBNL do so well! If this is truly the case, Olamide is a great leader.

      Listening to Lil Kesh’s interview made me respect Olamide more. He’s a good leader because he wants to see his artists grow beyond under a label. All his artists did very well. I can’t wait to see what Adekunle is cooking.

    why would anyone let go of adekunle gold willingly? he’s not only a huge star but he has such great commercial and artistic potential. i feel like he’s one of our musicians who could truly go international (yes I know that’s not a yardstick yada yada etc) – not like wizkid or davido who they are only signing to capture the nostalgic diaspora market (sorry!) but his music could be appreciated by nationality (like Asa). anyway, maybe it’s ynbl’s business plan.

    • wow

      sorry by any nationality and maybe i was a little unfair on wizkid but davido…?
