This is a detailed article about how Wizkid took home 35 awards in a single year.
Starboy Wizkid had a very massive and impressive year in 2021 with his Made In Lagos album and here is how Wizkid took home 35 awards in 2021.
However, we listed all the names of the ward won by starboy Wizkid in the single year 2021, netting a record of most awards won in a year by any African artistes.
It’s quite glaring on the turnout and the huge responsive reception Wizkid‘s made in Lagos is gaining, especially from the foreign audience.
Obviously, it’s been a decade since WizKid surfaced in the Nigeria music scene, and yet consciously binding his name into afrobeat history with made in Lagos album.
At the early release of ‘Made in Lagos‘ album, naysayers doubted the longevity and replay value, which is critically fine, since music taste is generally subjective even so a piece of quality can’t be overemphasized.
Personally, I feel like ‘SFTOS‘ was a great ploy to strategically test the market, in other to harness a new art to spotlight a genre on the verge of fetching a global grid.
Gradually, Wizkid has been able to fuse both the local audience into the new sound, which rarely happens but then it’s Wizkid and yeah!
The music charts impressively highlight the success of ‘Made in Lagos‘ both home and away, so all the awards are well deserved.
