Wizkid’s “Made In Lagos” makes The Guardian UK’s ‘Top 50′

The only African album on the list, Wizkid‘s “Made In Lagos” is among The Guardian UK‘s Top 50 Best Albums of 2020.

This 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 the list.

The 14-track album which features various artists like Burna Boy, Skepta, Ella Mai, H.E.R., Damian Marley, Tay Iwar, Projexx, Tems, and Terri is a pure work of art with unique sounds.

And as we mentioned in our previous article on Made In Lagos, Afrobeats continues to take the global music scene head-on, and Wizkid wants the world to remember where it all started and where it’s going.

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.
