The Afrobeats music star is set to release his landmark fifth album which kicks off Tio Tequila’s Rockstar era of his ever-evolving brilliant artistry.

On July 26, 2023, the multi-award-winning sensation shared the tracklist and guest appearances for ‘Tequila Ever After’.

These are five things listeners can expect from the highly anticipated body of work.

Even before making an artistic switch to Pop music, Adekunle Gold has consistently delivered hit music. As a Popstar, Adekunle Gold has released multiple hit records, and his forthcoming album ‘Tequila Ever After’ is heralded by the release of party-starting hits ‘Party No Dey Stop’ and ‘Ogaranya’.

Listeners can expect Tio Tequila to deliver stinging hit singles on his upcoming album that will further strengthen his place as one of Afrobeats’ hitmakers.

With guest appearances cut across Nigerian, African, and international superstars, listeners can expect some top-notch collaborations that will satisfy the craving of both domestic and international fans.

From Simi’s celestial vocals to ODUMODUBLVCK’S swaggering flow, Ami Faku and Khalid’s scintillating melodies, and Pharrell William‘s genius there’s a lot of excitement to look out for.

‘Tequila Ever After’ is carefully curated to capture Adekunle Gold’s fast-growing international fame that has seen him blow away audiences in festivals across Europe and thus earning him new fans.

With guest appearances for American music stars Pharrell Williams, Khalid, Coco Jones, Nile Rodgers, and production credit from British multi-talented producer Labrinth, the album is set to captivate foreign listeners while stretching Afrobeats’ creative boundaries.

Adekunle Gold is one of Africa’s most gifted musicians with remarkable penmanship and a rich understanding of music that’s obvious in the quality of his compositions.

‘Tequila Ever After’ has been described by critics as the highest level of Adekunle Gold’s artistry yet and this can be expected to materialize on the album through rich composition that combines impressive elements from all around the world.

With Afrobeats on a global ascension, ‘Tequila Ever After’ stands tall and ready to contend for global awards including the Grammys.

Adekunle Gold revealed that the making of ‘Tequila Ever After’ was inspired by a life-changing shot of Tequila that placed him in a cheerful mood and inspired him to make some of his best music yet.

Listeners can expect the album to pack this positive feeling through a collection of feel-good music that will deliver a healthy rush of dopamine and positivity that Tio Tequila wishes to convey.

This is contained in a statement by Dele Alake, Special Adviser to the President on Special Duties, Communications and Strategy, in Abuja on Friday.

The meeting will also be for the Regional Economic Communities (RECs), the Regional Mechanisms (RMs), and the African Union Member States.

As the Chairperson of ECOWAS, Tinubu will join other Heads of State and Government, Foreign Ministers of the AU Member-States, and high-level dignitaries at the meeting.

He will highlight actions carried out during the period under review by ECOWAS institutions, member-states, the private sector, and other stakeholders to deepen integration through trade, free movement of persons, investment promotion, infrastructure development, peace, security and stability.

The 5th MYCM, which is convening under the AU’s theme for 2023 “Acceleration of African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) Implementation”, will bring together the Bureau of the AU Assembly.

The bureau comprises the Heads of State and Government from Comoros, Botswana, Burundi, and Senegal, as well as the leaders of the eight RECs.

The Minnesota Vikings and Cincinnati Bengals have both exercised the fifth-year options on wide receiver Justin Jefferson and quarterback Joe Burrow.

This move ensures that both players will remain under contract with their respective teams through the 2024 season. Both Jefferson and Burrow were teammates on the one of the most dominant teams in all of college football in the 2019 LSU Tigers. That team also included Ja’Marr Chase.


Jefferson, who was selected 22nd overall by the Vikings. He quickly emerged as a top target for Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins. He was  then named to the Pro Bowl and the All-Rookie team.


The decision to exercise Jefferson’s fifth-year option was a no-brainer for the Vikings. They are hoping he can continue to be a dominant force in their offense for years to come. With the departure of veteran wide receiver Stefon Diggs in 2020, Jefferson has become the go-to receiver for the Vikings. The team is banking on him to help lead them as the top wide receiving threat. This season he won Offensive Player of the Year and led the NFL in receiving yards with 1,809.

The Vikings are +250 to win the NFC North according to Minnesota sportsbooks.


Meanwhile, the Bengals have exercised the fifth-year option on Burrow, who was selected first overall in the 2020 draft. Burrow had an impressive rookie campaign, despite missing the final six games of the season due to injury. Last season Burrow threw for 35 touchdowns and 12 interceptions and was fourth in MVP voting.


The decision to exercise Burrow’s fifth-year option was expected, as he is viewed as the franchise quarterback for the Bengals. Burrow’s impressive play-making abilities and poise under pressure have given the Bengals hope for a bright future. Cincinnati has already made a Super Bowl with Burrow under center. Now they have the full confidence in Burrow to lead to a Super Bowl victory.

The Bengals are +110 to win the AFC North according to Ohio sportsbooks.

The decisions to exercise the fifth-year options on both Jefferson and Burrow are significant moves for their respective teams. Both players have already proven to be major contributors to their teams, and the hope is that they will continue to improve and lead their teams to success in the years to come.
