Last year, Nigerian singer Wizkid released one of the best projects of the year when he finally dropped Made In Lagos. With collaborations with singers like Tems, Tay Iwar, Ella Mai, H.E.R and several others, Made In Lagos, is an exquisitely done project and anyone who doesn’t think the same needs to up the taste level.
While everyone can agree that the album is perfect and full of bops, there are a few songs that haven’t got the airplay and clout that I feel they deserve.
1. Longtime featuring Skepta
I can’t explain it but Wizkid collaborating with Skepta makes so much sense to me. There’s something about their energy and sounds that feels like it would fuse so well and with Longtime they proved me so right.
2. Mighty Wine
While Wizkid has well-thought-out collaborators on Made In Lagos, a solo Wizkid bop is very much well-appreciated and with Mighty Wine, Wizkid did what he needed to. I am going to need more people to get into it.
Reckless is the song that opens up Made In Lagos and it does a stellar job of setting the tone especially as the project opens to a slower-paced Wizkid than we are used to. I think it’s one of the best album openers from 2020 but I might be biased.
4. Roma ft Terri
Roma is a bit more fast-paced than most of the songs on Made In Lagos and I think that’s why I love it, it helps switch up the pace of the album and makes it all the more exciting.
5. Smile ft H.E.R
Seeing how this song features two powerhouses, I hoped it would be the song of the year, of the summer etc. It’s a beautiful velvety song that makes you feel so good afterwards.
