Afrobeat’s sensation, Adekunle Gold, popularly known as AG Baby, mesmerised hundreds of music lovers and inspired youths at a pre-Christmas concert sponsored by FirstBank, Nigeria’s premier financial institution.

 

The event, aptly named “Stacked December Party,” took place on December 22, 2023, at the Palms Shopping Mall in Lekki, Lagos.

Adekunle Gold, with his unique blend of breathtaking and soulful melodies, captivated the audience, leaving them in awe and begging for more. The concert, titled “An Intimate Encounter with Adekunle Gold,” provided a platform for the superstar to connect with his fans on a deeper level.

 

In a touching moment during the show, the acclaimed singer took a break from his electrifying performance to share an inspirational message. He revealed that despite battling the life-threatening sickle cell disease, he had successfully achieved his dreams of becoming a celebrated musician. With unwavering determination and perseverance, Adekunle Gold proved that one can overcome any obstacle and fulfill one’s aspirations.

 

Addressing the crowd, he said, “I have been on tour for about three years with full energy. I am a rockstar, yet I have sickle cell disease. It’s not easy, but if I can overcome my challenges, so can you. No matter your situation, believe in yourself and strive for greatness. I pray for your happiness and success.”

 

FirstBank, a financial giant which has operated for almost 130 years and is well known for its commitment to supporting the arts and empowering youths, sponsored numerous customers to attend the concert as part of its DecemberIssaVybe campaign.

Adding to the magical evening, Simi, Adekunle Gold’s superstar wife, joined him on stage for a brief but enchanting duet performance. Together, they serenaded the audience with heartfelt renditions of their popular songs, including “No Forget,” “Stand By You,” and “Look What You Made Me Do.”
