With a three-day sold-out show at the O2 Arena, the Afrobeats crooner concluded an outstanding year.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Wizkid’s three-day sold-out performance at the o2 Arena capped off a fantastic year in which the Nigerian superstar’s career grew by leaps and bounds. It’s not like this is a new development for an artist who, since breaking into the Nigerian scene in 2010, has always grown greater than any boundaries that have surrounding him. The year 2021, on the other hand, has been greater than anything we’ve seen from Ayo Balogun before. He was just about ready to leave after finishing last year with the release of his album and a Grammy nomination for his collaboration with Beyonce on ‘Brown Skin Girl.’
The magnitude of the debate over ‘Made In Lagos’ missing out on Album of the Year nominations is enough to convey the tale of his year thus far. His CD has organically crossed limitations that have systematically confined music from this region of the world. With Essence at the helm, his ‘Made In Lagos’ album found its way into playlists all over the world, with Essence hitting on the Billboard Top 100 as well as national charts in the UK, US, and Sweden, to mention a few.
He’s already won a slew of end-of-year honors, including Apple and Spotify Wrapped. The greatness that inspired the lead single from his ‘Made in Lagos’ album, ‘Essence,’ was also evident in many of his other tracks, resulting in an album that was dynamic and connected with listeners all around the world in such a fruitful year for his talent.
