Fans of new YBNL singer, Adekunle Gold have advised him to ‘pay urgent and special attention to his stage performances which according to a host of them, are nothing to write home about.
Some fans have tagged him as been too dry on stage. This came following his performance at the just concluded 2015 AllAfrican Music Awards, AFRIMA, where he performed his hit tracks, ‘Orente’ and ‘Sade’.
According to the fans, “He is usually boring on stage, and sometimes acts as if he doesn’t really even want to be there. Being a slow-tempo song, it is his performance of it that is supposed to give it a lift and the needed gingah.”
The ‘Sade’ crooner who picked up the award for Revelation of the Year at the AFRIMA, got many of the guests in attendance complaining openly that his performance was ‘drab and lifeless’.
A fan whose name was not mentioned, spoke with the organisers of AFRIMA, saying, “Instead of performing with a live band, all he did was mime and barely moved his body to the music.
“This performance is so boring and I’m so disappointed in him. No doubt, he is talented, but he has a lot of work to do in terms of carrying his fans along whenever he is on stage. If he continues this way, people will easily get tired of him,” the fan commented.
Meanwhile, reports allege this was also the same incident that played out when he performed at the last Felabration where many fans complained that his performance was colourless and dry.
