The talented musician had for a while teased the drop of a new project, and although he dropped ‘Tio Tequila’, it was evident that the Tio Tequila season had more to it than a 3-track EP. And just as we thought, he announced a full-length album. Here are 10 things you need to know about it:
1. Album Number
Tequila Ever After would make Adekunle Gold’s fifth studio album. The maestro singer has had a run of four outstanding albums since his debut album, Gold, in 2017.

4. Origin of Tio Tequila/Tequila Ever After
For everyone curious about how the title Tequila Ever After came about or how the whole Tio Tequila movement was birthed, Adekunle Gold revealed that he got the inspiration from the first time he tasted the popular Mexican distilled spirit, “Tequila.” He said the calm, chill, and summery vibe he got from it spawned the whole era and a song that same day.

Over the years, we have seen Adekunle Gold morph a couple of times, from the innocent and vulnerable Adekunle Gold, to the more mature and aware AG Baby (is your baby and is your daddy), and now to the era about to be birthed by this album, Tio Tequila. A well-achieved version, just living life to its fullest and enjoying every bit of it.
