It’s been close to three years since Wizkid starting whetting appetites with the release of an album. Postponement followed postponement, singles dropped instead of a whole body of work till the album, ‘Made in Lagos’, eventually became a reality.
One of the album’s talking points was the long-awaited collaboration between Wizkid and Burna Boy which is the second track of the album, ‘Ginger’. Other artistes who featured on the album include longtime acquaintance of Wizkid, Skepta; Damian Marley; H.E.R; Ella Mai; label mate, Terri and Tems.
Listening through the album, critics expressed on social media that Wizkid exhibits that he has not only evolved but also that his style now transcends regular pop and Afrobeats. Some were of the opinion that the Wizkid of ‘Jaiye jaiye’ and ‘Pakurumo’ is long gone.
Apparently because of the peculiar taste of the Nigerian audience, the songs on Wizkid’s fourth studio album made many express that they would be better suited to a foreign audience, with ‘Made in London’ ensuing from social trends on the album release.
On a positive note for the Grammy-nominated father of three, his sound delivery on the album was hailed as top-notch as the album is reportedly doing the round on music charts across the globe.
