Here are 5 things to expect from Wizkid’s upcoming album ‘Made in Lagos’

Post date:



Nigerian singer, Wizkid has been teasing his fourth studio album for the better part of 12 months. The album is to be titled, ‘Made In Lagos’ and it will be released under Starboy/RCA.

The title, Made In Lagos is< a direct reference to his Nigerian roots that lead straight to his Shitta (Small London), Surulere, Lagos beginnings. Fans and music enthusiasts expected the album to drop after the viral success of his single, ‘Fever,’ but it didn’t.

On March 19, 2019, the singer hosted a live session on his Instagram page, @wizkidayo and teased snippets to a few songs, presumably made for the upcoming album.

Three months later, on June 4, 2019, the singer took to his Instagram stories and posted the message, ““Gong” blessed me highest level of vibration! #MadeinLagos! Best I ever made. yes Fada!”

With the limited information we have, what can we then expect from Made In Lagos? Here are a few speculated thoughts;


All of Wizkid’s last three projects; Superstar, Ayo and Sounds From The Other Side were more than 10 songs in length. While this is no indication on what Made In Lagos could be in length, it is the streaming era, and the longer your album, the better your likelihood of making money.

Though not all the songs teased will make the album, Wizkid has teased a lot of songs. This leads to the speculation that the album is likely to be more than 10 songs in length.

It should be ready by now.</p> <h2>Date of release</h2> <p>With stars like Wizkid, their date of release is strategically selected and determined by a few factors. We can then speculate that if the album will ever drop in 2019, it will either be during the summer months or towards the end of the year.
