Why I decided to release my album in 2024- Korede Bello


After his special birthday and his new single featuring Don Jazzy, Korede Bello has a new album on its way. Korede Bello opened up about his decision to release his new album in 2024.

Nigerian musician Korede Bello recently spoke with Punch News about his decision to release his new album in 2024. Explaining the delay in new music, the God Win crooner shared that he deliberately waited for this leap year as it holds special significance for him. According to Korede Bello, the album serves as a personal gift and symbolizes his advocacy for mental health awareness.

He said "I guess I was waiting for my birthday. Because I was on February 29 (a leap year), I always have to wait for four years to celebrate my birthday. The album was created around ‘Kore Day’, my birthday. It is a story of Kore’s Day—a birthday gift to myself. It is an intimate project created to feel like a therapy session, which is a subtle nod to the mental health advocacy I do".

The former Mavins artist, regarded as a leap-year baby, has set the release date for his upcoming album. The album Koreday drops on March 22, 2024. The singer described the 18-track album as his "best body of work yet" showcasing his artistic growth and evolution.

He has a few things to say about the new generation of artists. He said "My only concern is that the younger the people in the industry get, the lower the quality of stories (songs) we will get to hear. What I mean is that artistes usually create art from their experiences; so, when a lot of sixteen-year-olds, for instance, get a shot at fame, they can only share from the limited scope of experiences they have".
