Lil Kesh: I am not taking Adekunle Gold out of YBNL

Popular Nigerian rapper, singer and songwriter having dropped his supposed first single Lyrically, which was immediately accepted by music lovers both home and abroad, was officially shot into limelight with his song Shoki.


Read excerpts of his interview with naij. com below:

Why choice of YAGI as the label name?

I picked the name because YAGI is the name of my debut album which mean ‘Young and getting it’ (YAGI) and it is like me because everybody knows that is my new logo. I am 22 and I am doing well for myself. Even with the name the album talks basically about me; I am just starting off and I am learning at the same time, I am getting it. I stand for YAGI and YAGI stands for me.


How is the new label doing?

Like we all know that with YBNL, I had a two year contract which ended some few weeks back and the rightful thoughts of Olamide from time is that his prayer stands firm on all his label artistes that after two years, all artistes he signed will not consider signing into another record label but rather they should be able to stand on their own and try and help other people just like he believed in me as well.

Was Olamide in the known that you were going to float your own label?

Off course he was aware because we have discussed about it before my contract ended that I was going to float my own label which he is in total support of as I know I got his back always.

According to speculations, is Adekunle Gold also on your YAGI label?

(Ah) My brother Gold is still under YBNL but most people got it wrong because he designed the label logo and my album art work. Adekunle Gold has always been supportive of my label from day one as well as other people on the YBNL label. For YAGI records, I am the only artiste on it; come to think of it where do people want me to see money from to sign Adekunle Gold; my bro is expensive just like all is songs are of good qualities.
