“You followed Jay-Z to be blasphemous” – Adekunle Gold receives massive backlash over soundtrack on Hollywood film


The soundtrack for the Hollywood movie, The Book of Clarence features Nigerian musician Adekunle Gold, who has drawn harsh criticism for it.

Adekunle Gold and Yemi Alade, who will make their debut on The Book of Clarence, are poised to take the world by storm.

The much-anticipated film with a soundtrack will have appearances by the two music icons in addition to international performers like Lil Wayne, Jay Z, Kid Cudi, Jorja Smith, Shabba Ranks, and more.

Jay Z, who also serves as the film’s producer, will release new music for the James Samuel-directed film.

Sharing the movie trailer, Adekunle Gold wrote: “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 drawn a lot of criticism from online users who label it blasphemous and disparage the singer.
