The Artiste who explained that he was originally a Muslim by birth said his father didnt support the idea.
On how he converted, Adekunle Gold said: “I followed a girl to church and found that I became a Christian instead. That was in 2004 and I have remained a Christian ever since.”
Speaking on his family’s reception of the news, he said: “My father didn’t like the idea initially but later everyone accepted me for who I am. I am cool being a Christian,
Adekunle Gold also explained the challenges he faced when his folks got to know he was going into the music industry, he explained: “My mum was always asking me why I would always use the money that I should utilise on myself on recording songs. I was a lover of music and I grew up listening to a lot of sounds. While at the Lagos Polytechnic, I would always run to record songs even when I started working, I was like that too and my parents didn’t understand what I was doing. I continued this until I dropped ‘Shade’ which became a big break. They support my vocation and are my number one fans,” he added.
