Wizkid is arguably the most influential music superstar in Nigeria currently and he is gradually taking that badge to the world stage. Since the superstar tweeted the title of his most anticipated fourth studio album on Sunday, the internet space in Nigeria has almost crashed.
#MadeinLagos was all the “Jaro” crooner tweeted that has kept him on the fingertips of most music lovers on Twitter since Sunday. Even the issue of President Donald Trump, the killing of Qasem Soleimani, and counter-attacks from Iranian armed groups have not been able to stop “Made in Lagos” from trending on Twitter.
This Wizkid album title has been revealed since 2018, a year after he released his critically acclaimed album “Sound From Other Side”. The Starboy has been using the title to tease his fans, keeping them salivating on what the album holds for them.
Instead of dropping the much-anticipated album, from the blues, he dropped an EP “Sound Man” in 2019 which has been doing very well on music streaming platforms despite little or no promotions.
Music enthusiasts believe that Wizkid’s failure to drop the ‘Made In Lagos’ album in 2019 was a calculated attempt to ensure that the album has less competition since most A-list musicians in Nigeria, including his arch-rival Davido, dropped their albums in 2019.
This and more are signals that if Wizkid finally drops the ‘Made In Lagos’ album in 2020, only the feared World War 3 can stop him from ruling the music world throughout the year.
Besides, all statistics are pointing to 2020 as the ideal year for Wizkid to drop the album. For instance, the year difference between his three albums is three years interval. He dropped his debut album ‘Superstar’ in 2011, he dropped ‘Ayo’ in 2014 and he dropped his last album ‘Sound From Other Side’ in 2017.
So, it is evident that 2020 is the surest year for Wizkid’s ‘Made In Lagos’ album.
