According to the singer who celebrated his first wedding anniversary in January, 2020, he took some of the negative comments, identified the truth in them, and began working towards getting better.

“If something is out of your control, there’s nothing you can do about it. But if it is within your control, then you have the power to change it,” said Adekunle Gold.

“At some point, I wasn’t comfortable with the way I was looking, and though I was feeling bad, I asked myself, ‘Can I do something about it?’ The answer was ‘Yes’. So, I began working out, and right now, I’m almost addicted to it. Also, it took me a long time to stop biting my nails, but I’ve eventually stopped,” he added.
