The Guardian UK Ranks Wizkid’s 'Made In Lagos' Among Top 50 Best Albums of 2020
On the 1st of December 2020, The Guardian released their top 50 best albums of 2020, and Wizkid’s 'Made In Lagos' album was spotted at number 43. Apart from Wizkid, no other African artiste made the list. Their post reads:
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.
According to their website, theguardian.com, the list is drawn from votes by Guardian music critics – each critic votes for their top 20 albums, with points allocated for each placing, and those points tallied to create this order.
