Wizkid blew away the minds of his fans on Twitter on Thursday, February 20, 2020, when he took to the micro-blogging site to tweet that his much-anticipated album ‘Made In Lagos’ was finally ready.
Ever since the Nigerian musician disclosed this, the title of the unreleased album and the musician’s name remained the most talked about topics on Twitter. In fact, since last night till the time of publishing this report, “Wizkid” was sitting on top Twitter trends in Nigeria.
The “Joro” crooner has been keeping his fans salivating about this album since 2018 when he first talked about it in an interview. Anytime the singer feels like playing with his fans, he drops a tweet related to the “Mad In Lagos” album and his name takes over Twitter.
This antics, though promotional, has risen the expectation for the album to the roof and has attracted the attention of both fans and foes. This also could be a source of pressure on Wizkid and his team which should make them ensure that the fans, especially the foes, are not disappointed when he finally releases the much-anticipated body of work.
“Finally done! So you know what that means,” Wizkid tweeted after tweeting that, “I(‘ve) been working on my album and my spirit.”

This is not the first time the musician took to social media to talk about “Made In Lagos” being ready. Recall that sometime in 2019, he took to Instagram live to give a hint that the album was ready and even played some sound bite from the unreleased album.
Still, the album was not released; he released an Extended Play (EP) titled “Sound Man” instead of the much-anticipated album. The EP did well on streaming platforms but not so well when it comes to street acceptance and on-air play in Nigeria.
Well, if the musician finally drops Made In Lagos this year, it would be the singer’s fourth album after Superstar (2011), Ayo (2014) and Sounds From The Other Side (2016).
For the records, none of the 29-year-old singer’s album has been able to beat his 2011 Superstar album. It still remains his most critically acclaimed album in terms of street acceptance in Nigeria. Let us see whether the “Made In Lagos” album will beat that record.
