If people had to wait any longer for the release of Wizkid’s new album, it may have resulted in lifting placards in front of his house. Why? Anyone might ask and the answers are simple; firstly, they had waited for so long, secondly, he has been teasing and talking about it since 2018 and thirdly, Wizkid is arguably the most sort out Nigerian singer and songwriter, and over the last couple of years, Naija’s Star Boy has relentlessly teased fans with the release of his album.
The much anticipated album had been stalled for many reasons best known to him, but most notable was the most recent release date which was shifted due to the #EndSARS protest, of which Wizkid was very vocal about his stands on the #EndSARS movement, Police Brutality and the overall condemnable state of things in the nation, and that was a very patriotic move of his side, nice even, if we do say so ourselves.
And to a better turn of events after over two years of waiting eagerly for the release of Wizkid’s album, it is finally here. Wizkid decided to release his fourth studio album titled “Made in Lagos”. The album dropped on 29th October 2020, and at a very specific or should we say special time “11:11pm”. Do you think the time is significant to him? Who knows! This album release comes three years after he released his last album “Sounds from the Other Side” in 2017.
It is no surprise that even before the official release of this album, fans had already gone agog on social media with praises and hypes for the album. In fact, it was trending numero uno on Nigerian twitterverse, and is still trending.
The “Made in Lagos” album has 14 tracks and features some of the best artistes in the music industry, both local and International, some of which are Damian Marley, Skepta, Tems, Ella Mai, Burna Boy and others. As a matter of fact, we won’t fail to mention that even though the “Made in Lagos” album is barely 24 hours, it is already topping charts globally, and the album cover art is also creating serious buzz.
There are no arguments when you say that Wizkid is just about the most loved and uncontroversial artiste in Nigeria, and his fans are loyal, and who could fault them? He delivers great tunes.
