Made in Lagos represents Wizkid at his finest, a sonically grown – global afro pop star. Wizkid comfortably delivers new alluring flows over sonically sexy saxophone infused beats. With just 14 tracks at 52 mins, Made in Lagos makes one thing clear about star boy – he is stress free.
The album is star studded with brilliant features. Damien Marley dropped bars on “Blessed”, Ella Mai vocally slayed “Piece of me”, Skepta bodied “Longtime” as expected, and Burna Boy smoked the beat on “Ginger”. It’s also important to highlight the soothing contributions of Tems on “Essence” and Tay Iwar’s brilliant impression on “True Love” – a personal favourite.
Wizkid’s Made in Lagos is undeniably one of the markers of afro pop taking its place on the global stage, as a genre. If you haven’t already, be sure to give it a listen HERE. Don’t dull.
