After a long while of anticipation, WizKid finally comes up with a full project to treat the delectation of his fans. The album, ‘Made In Lagos’ has been described as Africa’s most anticipated album of 2020. Before the release of the project, barely a week passed without trending banters about how the album will turn out to be.
People expected the “Ojuelegba” vibes, because of the eponymous nature of the album, however, this is not the case. Save for Blessed which features Damian Marley, there were no relevant connections between the title of the album and the songwriting. Even the songs are not the regular Afro-Pop ginger that WizKid used to serve.
While the songs are chart-friendly, they are far from what attracted people to WizKid in the first place and this leads many of his consumers to disappointment. To some, this means that WizKid is on a new sound path and is discovering himself. And to others, this means that WizKid’s career is “flopping”.
