12 Wizkid Essential Songs To Listen To In Anticipation of His Album Made In Lagos
Wizkid is a rare gem. And this is me putting it simply. The singer has continually teased the release of his third studio album Made In Lagos and there's been great anticipation.
Wizkid has risen from the depths of Small London to become one of the most sought-after musicians in the world, scoring major collaborations with international acts and selling out concerts worldwide. The singer stated that the album Made In Lagos is special to him and is one of his best works.
Although Wizkid first claimed that there would be no features on the body of work Made In Lagos, he later went live on Instagram to play some of the songs he's been working on as well as features. Some of the acts include Shaydee, Teni Entertainer, Burna Boy, and many others.
As we joyously wait for Wizkid's album Made In Lagos, we thought it best to compile a list of some of his songs that are considered to be favorites by music lovers.
Ojuelegba was the song that really brought Wizkid international acclaim. The song garnered massive attention such that Skepta and Drake jumped on the remix.
Holla At Your Boy
After years of struggling, Wizkid signed to EME records. Holla At Your Boy was his first official single under the label that introduced him to the limelight.
Although the song didn't enter the Nigerian market well, I think this is one of Wizkid's best songs. Naughty Ride was one of the songs on the singer's mixtape Sounds From The Other Side.
On Top Your Matter
On Top Your Matter was an instant hit. The song topped music charts and was played massively in clubs and parties.
Jaiye Jaiye feat Femi Kuti
It's not everyday you get a spiritual song like Jaiye Jaiye. Wizkid collaborated with Femi Kuti on the Sarz-produced instrumental.
Come Closer feat Drake
After Drake's One Dance (which featured Wizkid and Kyla) topped several charts and went viral, Wizkid featured Drake on Come Closer and the song further pushed Wizkid to a place of dominance as an Afrobeats star.
Joy was one of the songs on Wizkid's second studio album Ayo. On the song, Wizkid was expressing how his mother most likely felt birthing a superstar.
This was the song that followed after Wizkid's Holla At Your Boy. Don't Dull is yet one of the singer's best songs and it rouses fans whenever he performs it.
Celebrate is one of the songs off the Ayo album. It's a party-themed song where the Star boy is in a jolly mood and just wants to celebrate.
Final (Baba Nla)
Wizkid dropped Baba Nla after a brief hiatus from the music industry. As always, the song quickly accrued massive attention from fans and music lovers.
Back in the early stages of Wizkid's career, Pakurumo was one of the songs that informed the Nigerian audience that Wizkid is a certified hitmaker.
Show You The Money
Wizkid has made many hits with Shizzi and Show You The Money is one of them. The song was released on his 24th birthday and it followed with captivating visuals.
Wizkid's album Made In Lagos promises to be impressive. The singer is taking his time to work on the project and it appears as if he's put a lot of effort into it. He recently hinted that Damian Marley will be on the album.
