Adekunle Gold, a multi-award-winning Afrobeats icon, released one of the lead singles from his impending “Tio Ever After” project on July 14, 2023. The song is titled “Ogaranya,” and it is already a smash hit. After starting 2023 off right with the release of his top-charting single Party No Dey Stop featuring Zinoleesky, AG released the smooth Amapiano mashup “Omo Eko,” which honours his Lagosian heritage, and the alluring Dancehall track “Do You Mind?” as follow-ups. Adekunle Gold has returned with a brand-new, infectious hit single called “Ogaranya,” which captures his status as an Afrobeats icon who can deliver elements that can be related to on the street while still maintaining a high level of artistry.
The Igbo word “Ogaranya” describes a person with extensive resources who uses those resources to help others. The term, which has a long history of producing Afrobeats hits, also denotes creativity, independence, tenacity, bravery, and sincerity—all qualities Adekunle Gold exemplifies in his persona as “Tio Tequila.”
Adekunle Gold has a lot of hit records in his arsenal, and since making his debut in 2016, he has consistently released hit records each year. He released the ground-breaking record “High,” featuring Davido and “Sinner,” with Lucky Daye, in 2021. He released the number-one single “5 Star” in 2022, and in 2023, he wowed listeners with “Party No Dey Stop” featuring Zinoleesky. Adekunle Gold is depicted in the minted visuals for the song Ogaranya, released as an instant gratification track. His upcoming sensational album will introduce the side of him that listeners can anticipate, bringing his music to a worldwide audience. Ogaranya prepares listeners for the forthcoming release of Tequila Ever After, Adekunle Gold’s historic fifth album, which will show off yet another facet of his talent and push the boundaries of Afrobeats even further.
Adekunle Gold previously disclosed that the inspiration for his upcoming album came from a shot of life-altering tequila, which led him to write and record some of his best songs to date. He is surrounded by vegetation that is a nod to Mexico, the country where the well-known booze is said to have its roots in the album cover art. Adekunle Gold’s Tio Tequila era will officially begin with the release of the eagerly anticipated album, marking yet another impressive artistic development for the talented musician who has gone from being a Highlife fusion artist to a Popstar to an international Rockstar.
Adekunle Gold solidifies his reputation as an Afrobeats hitmaker, talented songwriter, and genre-defying master on “Tequila Ever After,” which contains 18 incredible songs. He also reaches out to listeners worldwide through thrilling mega-collaborations that would be anticipated on the project.
