Adekunle Gold will fund sickle cell children’s charitable foundations.

After interacting with sickle cell disease-affected youngsters, Adekunle Gold declared his commitment to donate to nonprofits that support these children.

The musician talked candidly about his experiences growing up with sickle cell disease, including repeated hospital stays, during a recent performance in London.

Even though he continues to fight to improve the lives of people with sickle cell, he understands the need for extra assistance and has chosen to collaborate with organizations in order to assist these kids.

In his words;


“It took me years to finally be able to share publicly that I was born with Sickle Cell. Over the last 2 years I have spoken about this disease during my performances but I realise that more needs to be done.

Every year over 100,000 children are born with Sickle Cell in Nigeria alone. Sickle Cell has no cure, it is highly under researched because it largely affects West Africans.

This weekend was very emotional for me, met children living with the disease, spoke with parents who are finding it hard to cope amidst the economic crisis in the country.

Thank you to @samiupdate and @sicklecellfoundationng for the work you are doing.

I am inspired by the touching stories and encounters I had last weekend and I want to ensure that all the independent organisations doing the vital work, outreach and research needed to fight Sickle Cell receive the resources and support that they desperately need.

To my Champions, if I can do it, you can do it too.❤️
