Singer, Adekunle Gold has come under heavy criticism over his Soundtrack on Hollywood’s film, The Book of Clarence.
It is worth noting that Adekunle Gold and Yemi Alade are gearing up for their global debut in ‘The Book of Clarence’. Joining international artists such as Lil Wayne, Jay Z, Kid Cudi, Jorja Smith, Shabba Ranks, and others, they will contribute to the much-anticipated movie with its soundtrack.
The movie which is directed by Jeymes Samuel, will feature new music from Jay Z, who is also the producer of the movie.
Taking to his Instagram page, Adekunle Gold shared the news.
“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.”
The film, however, faced significant criticism from online users, who labelled it as blasphemous and criticized Adekunle Gold.

One Queen Cilia wrote: “Very controversial, another way the West restructured an important tale and culture to suit their taste (the American behavior). I respect Art so I’ll see the movie to be able to give my opinion and have a proper conversation about it if it arises. But a defamation will not be accepted”
