“Made In Lagos” Shows Wizkid Is On A New Sound Path (Album Review)
Wizkid’s Made In Lagos has had different takes. Some say it’s trash, and others claim it’s his most decent album since Superstar. We take a look at the project.
For Wizkid, Made In Lagos is coming at a critical point in his career. Last year had him disengaged from the spheres of the Nigerian soundscape, contributing only two singles all year.
Thus, a full-length album from Wizkid is seen as a relief.
Been anticipated for more than two years, hopes were high for Wizkid to deliver usual afrobeat bangers in the magnitude of — Pakurumo, Tease me, No lele, Ojuelegba, Jaiye Jaiye—that serenaded his previous projects.
But what shall we expect from this new wine from Wizkid, our host? Come on in, let’s feast. It’s a banquet of good music.
Overall, Made In Lagos is a step forward for Wizkid. We somehow have to accept the current sonic pedestal Wizkid is on.
The theme is so clear, it’s all about the thrilling feelings of love and everything associated with it. Gone are the club banging sounds of Soco or inspirational messages of No Lele.
Made In Lagos is big, polished, feature-packed, and loaded with radio and playlist friendly records. It’s the type of album that will boost streams but it runs contrary to what made Wizkid appealing in the first place.
Our rating of the album — 7/10 ★★★★★★★☆☆
