Nigerian superstar rapper Wizkid’s album Made in Lagos has climbed to the top of world charts.
This is the fourth studio album from Wizkid (real name Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun) who delayed its release in solidarity with activists protesting about police brutality in Nigeria.
Made in Lagos (MiL) is a serious contender for album of the year.
But the standout number is Ginger in which Wizkid collaborates with fellow Nigerian rapper Burna Boy. The video has been a social media sensation.
Some rate MiL the best African album of the decade.
Fans of Burna Boy are disputing this, though they agree that the collaboration is magnificent.
One fan tweeted: “Wizkid & Burna and the producer snapped on Ginger. Whew! I can’t stop listening to that song. WHAT A JAM!!!”
