Akinyele Adams, who scored big in 1996 with his lasting sex-tinged hit, “Put It In Your Mouth,” has moved beyond microphones and established himself as an adult entertainment entrepreneur. The Queens, New York native has been in Miami cementing his brand and has partnered with V-Live to build a new strip club concept space.

Adams, the former owner of the King of Diamonds Miami location, announced his newest business venture via press release earlier today (Aug. 9) and shared details of the V-Live collaboration. The new club, tentatively titled King of Diamonds V-Live, will provide censored live entertainment and soul food around the clock.

From the press release:

“We’re teaming up with the new, young and fresh V-Live to represent the one culture that is missing on Ocean Drive – our urban culture,” says Akinyele. “I love South Beach, it’s such a beautiful place and because of the diversity of so many cultures all in one place, it reminds me of my hometown of New York in that way. That’s why I wanted to bring my business to Ocean Drive to cater to those who enjoy and want to experience the urban culture. In addition to that we’re actually bringing something to the table that believe it or not doesn’t even exist on South Beach and that’s soul food. Come’on we’re easily gonna be the best place on earth with great food, gorgeous women and the beach, that’s ecstasy at its best,” excitedly says King Of Diamonds V-Live owner, Akinyele.

The release further explains that King of Diamonds V-Live is a “cleaned up version” of the strip clubs he’s built his name on. If the release is to be understood, women, music, and soul food are the central themes of the space although flat out nudity looks to be off the table. However, to those who feel like this dulls the Miami strip club experience, the business will feature a stripper’s pole in the middle of the venue.

Also of note, King of Diamonds V-Live will be the first Black-owned business on Ocean Drive, which is part of the former rapper’s ongoing drive to integrate and invigorate the region.  Fans can keep up with
