Made in Lagos’, the globally-acclaimed album of Nigerian superstar, Wizkid, has achieved a new feat by being on the list of Guardian UK’s top best 50 albums of 2020.
The album, which has broken many records since its release on October 30, was placed at the 43rd spot on the list.
The Starboy Entertainment record label boss is the only African artist on the list.
The Guardian UK describes the album thus:
“Nigerian pop continued to establish itself more firmly on the international stage in 2020 with successful albums by Burna Boy, Davido, Tiwa Savage, Tems, and more. The best of them all was this lilting, versatile record by Wizkid. Guest stars from across the Black Atlantic – Skepta and Ella Mai from the UK, HER from the US, Damian Marley, and Projexx from Jamaica – create the sense of a diasporic dialogue, where reggae, dancehall, rap, and Afro-swing seamlessly and sensually intertwine.”
