Arguably Nigeria’s biggest artiste presently, Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun popularly called Wizkid has announced his personal 3rd Studio Album (and a 4th in general) will hit our ears very soon.
It will not be far-fetched to say that Starboy probably has the best and biggest fan base on Nigerian social media platforms with his fans labelling themselves ‘Wizkid FC’.
Indeed, they would do almost anything for the musician who has brought joy and nothing but joy with his music since he burst into the Nigerian music sphere.
In a world where stars dwindle as quickly as they emerge, Starboy’s has been a constant and consistent light in the Nigerian music industry.
It is not easy to consistently be at the top of your trade for so long and Ayodeji has done that with finesse.
Wizkid’s music is revered for being evergreen and few would have forgotten his first studio album Superstar which was a massive hit.
It did not take long for him to become the first Nigerian Artiste to amass up to 1 million followers on Twitter. Hence, the beginning of the Wizkid FC stans.
His 2nd album was Empire State of Mind but it is not entirely his as he released it in tandem with his then boss, Banky W.
Empire State of Mind had blockbusters like Baddest Boy and Ko mo le.
‘Ayo’ followed in 2014 and it was also massive.
Songs such as ‘Jaiye-Jaiye’ and ‘On top your matter’ are still being played in clubs till this day.
Now you understand the hype about Wizkid.
Therefore with another inevitable Afrobeat wonder around the corner, what do we actually know about this upcoming album?
What is the name of Wizkid’s New Album?
Well, if you are reading this you already know his new album is titled Made in Lagos.
It is not rocket science trying to figure out how he arrived at that name as Wizzy was born and bred in Nigeria’s business capital, Lagos State.
In fact, he grew up in Ojuelegba and his music which was labelled after his childhood town was also a big hit.
If that did not flop, Starboy’s Made in Lagos will not either!
Ojuelegba notably featured American Hip-hop Super Star, Drake as well as popular rapper, Skepta.
When will Wizkid’s new Album Made in Lagos be Released?
