Award winning Nigerian singer Adekunle Gold has taken to his Instagram handle to reveal why he titled his new song Ire.
The singer disclosed that his late sister Busayo died in 2011. He added that his sister died of heart related diseases and she was a good singer before her demise. Adekunle further revealed that he is highly protective of his family but he can’t skip not talking about one of his favourite memories.
He also disclosed that looking at the video, the little girl who was skipping around him represents his late sister and he dedicates the song to her.
The singer shared the post on his Instagram handle. Adekunle Gold shared a throwback picture of him with late Busayo with the caption:
“’For Busayo’ 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. #decodingire #ire #ForBusayo.”
