Before the release of “Ire“, Adekunle Gold said the Seyikeyz-produced track will be “the soundtrack of your life”, and he was clearly on to something. It’s an immensely relatable song about the struggle to be the best you can be.
After the release, Adekunle further dedicated the song to his deceased sister, Busayo.
Many are curious on who Busayo is and the singer has shed light into the dark story with a throwback photo he shared recently.
According to Adekunle Gold she, Busayo is his dead sister and he dedicated the song to her because she was one of his favorite people.
Who is Busayo?
I’ve been getting this question a lot. Busayo is my sister. We lost her in 2011 to a Heart Complication. I’m fiercely protective of my family but I didn’t think I could skip out one of my favorite memories or people in life.
Busayo was symbolically represented by the little girl skipping around me in the video as that is who she was in real life.
She never left my side, matter of fact, she was my younger twin. We looked alike and she could sing for the whole of AFRICA.
In my heart, I believe I sing for the both of us; It was only right that I dedicated the video to her memory…
