Made in Lagos will not only engulf listeners in the unique sounds, live instrumentation and vibes of Lagos, but will celebrate Wizkid’s love and appreciation for where he comes from and his inspirational journey with standout tracks such as “Blessed” and “Reckless.” The 14-track project includes features from an incredible group of chart-topping artists – Burna Boy, Skepta, Damian Marley, H.E.R. Ella Mai and Starboy Entertainment’s youngest signee Terri.

Originally scheduled for release on October 15, Wizkid dedicates the project to the citizens of Nigeria in light of the police brutality occurring in his beloved country. “It has been beautiful to see Nigerians around the world coming together to protest against police brutality,” says Wizkid.  “Unity is key. The youth of Nigeria need our collective voices to continue to shine a spotlight to what is happening inside the country. I want to play my part in this and in the movement for a better Nigeria, a better place to live for ourselves, our families – our communities. We will get through this together. Together we move. #endSARS.”

Wizkid – No Stress

Producer P2J provides the swaying rhythm on “No Stress” while Wizkid chronicles a specific type of situationship for a woman that “got her own, but needs some love.” The track is the follow up to previously released gem, “Smile” featuring multi-Grammy Award winner H.E.R., described as “an infusion of Afro, Soul, and reggae to come up with a unique sound” by Daily New Hip Hop.

Both songs are the latest offering from Wizkid’s fourth full-length studio project Made In Lagos, which will not only engulf listeners in the unique sounds, live instrumentation and vibes of Lagos, but will celebrate Wizkid’s appreciation for where he comes from and his inspirational journey.

In addition to music, Wizkid continues to be omnipresent across multiple endeavors. Last October, Wizkid relaunched his indoor Starboy Fest, which sold out the o2 Arena for the second year in a row and included new territories in Europe (Manchester & Paris), and this May he refocused his energy on his Starboy Entertainment imprint in Africa by executive producing the “Afro Series,” the debut EP from Terri, the youngest artist on the roster. With significant partnerships with brands such as Tecno Mobile, CIROC, Nike, and United Bank of Africa, Wizkid has solidified himself as a millennial pioneer for African entertainment and business of lasting global impact.
