Wizkid fans will have to wait a while longer for new album ‘Made In Lagos.’
Full story below…
The Afrobeats titan was set to unleash his long-awaited LP this Friday (October 15).
However, in the wake of the protests in Nigeria over the controversial SARS police department, the Starboy has opted to delay the project.
Wiz has been at the forefront of calls for change, as such it’s understandable why he’s keen to keep the focus on dissolving what he (and many others in the #ENDSARS movement) say is widespread corruption and violence in the sect.
He revealed the news when quizzed by a fan on Twitter:
When it does arrive, ‘Made In Lagos’ will boast an eclectic list of collaborators joining him on the LP. A list that includes fellow African titan Burna Boy, Ella Mai, Damian Marley, Skepta, and RCA label-mate H.E.R.
Producers on-board Starboy’s musical ship include P2J (‘Lion King: The Gift’), Kel P (‘African Giant’), frequent collaborator and close friend Mutay from Legendury Beatz (who helmed Nigeria’s “national anthem” ‘Ojuelegba’), Sarz (‘Come Closer,’ ‘Jaiye Jaiye’).
