CRITICAL PRAISE FOR MADE IN LAGOS AND “GINGER”:

On Sidney Madden’s “Top 10 Albums of 2020” for NPR’s “The Best Music Of 2020: NPR Staff Picks” List

“’Made In Lagos’ is notable for how seamlessly it switches moods: tracks like ‘Smile’ and ‘Essence,’ featuring H.E.R. and rising Nigerian star Tems, feel like falling in love on a warm night, while “Mighty Wine” and “No Stress” evoke sweat drips and fogged up club windows.”

“…its lush production and thoughtful, romantic lyrics helping Wiz trace a path back to the bright, bustling Nigerian capital.”

“The sultry and wide-ranging album is the very best of what the author Bolu Babalola calls “African sweetboy music,” a compilation of deliciously percussive songs that pulls in artists from across the diaspora…”

“…Wizkid’s record sounds like the sorts of nights made impossible by the pandemic, like the condensation-filled air of a summer party. That Made in Lagos still feels hopeful when such gatherings remain unthinkable is a testament to Wizkid’s star power.

“Joy has been in short supply during the pandemic, but WizKid’s fourth album is overflowing with it.”

“…WizKid manages to prove, once again, that he can infuse his sound with anything and come out with a body of work that’s begging to be played on repeat.”

“’Ginger,’ a collaboration with Nigerian artist Burna Boy that was destined to be a banger, transports you to the hustle and bustle of Lagos, the two artists’ home city.”

“On ‘Made In Lagos’, Wizkid made a record for the grown and sexy gang. And with the title paying tribute to his origins, rich and velvety production that ranges from jazz to classic Afrobeats and appearances from Burna Boy, Skepta, H.E.R, Tay Iwar, Tems, Damian Marley and many more, the breadth and inspiration of this expansive project saw him extend far beyond the Nigerian capital.”
