“Went from Ikotun viewing centres to Old Trafford” – Adekunle Gold says after bagging Manchester United deal

Nigerian music star, Adekunle Kosoko also known as Adekunle Gold has celebrated his ambassadorial deal with Manchester United by reminiscing on the times he used to visit football viewing centres to watch matches.

The afropop singer took the fashion world by storm in a recent ad modeling for the English Premier League club’s LFSTLR collection in collaboration with Adidas.

Adekunle stated via his Twitter page that he went from watching games at football centres in Ikotun, Lagos state to being at Old Trafford.

Manchester United had uploaded on Twitter (X) a video of the ‘5 Star’ crooner modeling its outfit with the caption; “Inspired by the game, made for the culture: our LFSTLR range @AdekunleGOLD #MUFC || @adidasFootball”

Reacting, the singer who was exhilarated by the fact that his favourite team was celebrating him urged people to not stop dreaming.

He wrote; “Went from watching the games from viewing centres in Ikotun to being invited to watch at Old Trafford to actually working with and being celebrated by my favourite football club in the world. Wild! By all means, Dream!”

Adidas said the LFSTLR collection blurs the boundaries between football performance and streetwear culture. It features an adaptation of this season’s Manchester United Third Jersey while maintaining the iconic design.
