The bank believes Adekunle Gold epitomises its values to promote financial inclusion, encourage inspirational thinking, reward creativity and empower customers in the demography of high school students, undergraduates, NYSC members, young professionals, entrepreneurs and ‘positively disruptive innovators’.

Reacting to his engagement as brand ambassador, Adekunle Gold stated that: “I am excited about this partnership because it is a platform to reach teeming youth audience, who are also largely a core of my fan base by bringing them to the frontline of financial service offerings from Unity Bank Plc, an institution that seeks to support their aspirations’’.

The ‘Orente’ singer is looking forward to a sold-out performance at the London 02 Arena during his upcoming concert ‘Indigo at the 02’ on June 29, 2018.

Adekunle Gold, who is set to release his second album titled About 30, has a lot already parked for 2018 after having a very successful 2017.
