Adekunle Gold Faces Fans Backlash Over Hollywood Movie Role

The soundtrack of the upcoming Hollywood film, The Book of Clarence, has stirred controversy with Nigerian artist Adekunle Gold’s inclusion drawing mixed reviews.

Adekunle Gold and Yemi Alade are set to make their debut in The Book of Clarence, aiming to make a significant impact globally.


The highly anticipated movie, featuring a star-studded soundtrack, will showcase performances by these two music icons alongside international artists such as Lil Wayne, Jay Z, Kid Cudi, Jorja Smith, Shabba Ranks, and more.

Jay Z, doubling as the film’s producer, is set to drop fresh music for the film directed by James Samuel.

Adekunle Gold, sharing the movie trailer, expressed his excitement:


“It’s great to see such incredible representation in a first-of-its-kind film. #TheBookofClarence, a film by @Jeymes features new music from myself, @JAYZ @liltunechi @yemialade, and more. Exclusively in movie theaters January 12.”

However, the film has faced criticism online, with some users deeming it blasphemous and condemning the singer’s involvement.
