Adekunle Gold said quitting his former job for music was the biggest decision he ever took in his life.
The singer disclosed this in an interview with The Sun.
“The greatest decision I have ever taken was quitting my job in 2014. I was working with a social media brand activation company and I was the Brand Manager. I was earning very good money. Earning that kind of money today one would be very big. I wasn’t getting shows then but I knew that my music was suffering and I wanted to do something about it. So, one day, I just woke up and resigned,” the Orente crooner told the paper.
The 30-year-old also recounted to the publication how he was weaned on both Islam and Christianity, “My parents are Muslims so I grew up in an Islamic home. But my dad allowed us to go to church because he thinks religion is education as well, so it was okay to learn from any religion. But when we grew a little older, he stopped us so we started learning the Quran.”
