EndSARS Protests: Wizkid Postpones Made in Lagos Release Date

on

Due to the on-going widespread EndSARS protests, Wizkid has postponed the release date for his highly-anticipated studio album ‘Made in Lagos.’

Wizkid is one of the staunch supporters of the protest that has been on-going for a week now. The protests demand the end to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a unit of the Nigerian Police Force that have been accused of torturing, maiming, raping, extorting, and killing civilians.

The album was initially scheduled to be released on Thursday, October 15, 2020 but will now be released at a later date. The unrest has spread out of the country as protests were held in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and many other countries of the world.

The demands to end SARS have been met by the Inspector General of Police. However, he formed a new unit of the Police, Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT) on Tuesday, 13th October, 2020 which will still accommodate former members of the disbanded SARS.

This has led to widespread EndSARS, now EndSWAT protests across the country and abroad which has made Wizkid postpone the release of Made in Lagos.

There have also been blockages of some major roads in the cities. The Nigerian Police Force has also reportedly fired live rounds of ammunitions at peaceful protesters leading to the death of as many as 8 people with several others left injured.

The movement continues today and has already seen a lot of coverage from international media.

News of Wizkid postponing his album release was not well-received by many fans who have shown anger and frustration at the government for letting this happen.

Starboy has yet to communicate when the new release date would be.
