On receiving the award, the singer said “Rejection sometimes is a good thing, this song is my personal story of rejection, i have chased a girl for 3 years and she rejected me, so i wrote the song ‘Sade’, to show the story, thank God for this”.

Adekunle who sings in Highlife with a mid-tempo pop twist, had earlier revealed how he got into the heart of Olamide, and subsequently, earning a record deal.

“I have been working with Olamide, I designed the YBNL logo, I have done a couple of designs for the label before I got signed.” Adekunle revealed.

“When I dropped Sade, Olamide apparently liked it, and the whole YBNL crew liked it. So he called me and said he really liked my sound, and didn’t want it to change, that he would love to work with me. “I didn’t see it coming, I didn’t lobby for it, I didn’t do anything, I didn’t think about it at all.”

He later wrote ”Thank you Jesus, thank you @baddosneh for believing in me” on his Instagram page.
