Adekunle Gold — The Afrobeats star takes us around his colorful city of Lagos, WePresent (feature)


There’s no place like home — at least that’s what Afrobeats musician Adekunle Gold believes. Few know Lagos, Africa’s megacity, as well as him, born, bred and still living in the bustling vibrancy of his favorite city in the world. Writer Jareh Das spoke to Adekunle to learn how growing up in Lagos informed both his spirit and his music, the best spots to visit, eat and party, and why artists want to come to soak in the atmosphere and hopefully absorb some of that famous Lagosian drive to succeed.
