Must Watch! Adekunle Gold celebrates Workers Day with video releases for “Work”

Adekunle Gold - Work

Adekunle Gold Work: The fiercely talented musician is back with his down-to-earth lyrics and the songs that the common man can relate to!

From Orente to Pick Up, this dude has an affinity for touching the commoner’s nerve. He sings the songs that everyone will relate to – from the MD to the gate man, are we not all chasing the same thing? A little wealth, a little comfort, a little love? An honest wage for an honest day’s work?

This latest video is for ‘Work’ one of the songs from his critically acclaimed album titled Gold. Aptly released today, Worker’s Day, the video catches the spirit of the Nigerian toiling to make a living. From the butcher to the market woman; from the fried yam seller to the office worker, we’re all at it; daily hustling to make ends meet.

As with all songs from this brilliant young man, there’s a message:

Ororo no be crude oil….ah
Pussy cat no be tiger….ah
Monkey ya’to si chimpanzee….ah
Work o! Work o!
Burger no be for monkey o….ah
Iwo naa fe se big boy….ah
Swagger o n se fun ole o….ah

Work o! Work o!

Yes, there is honour in labour, and on this Worker’s Day,set against the backdrop of a bustling, thriving Lagos, Adekunle Gold reminds us of exactly that.
