Wizkid’s ‘Made In Lagos album’ is still making waves worldwide. There was a belief in some quarters that when Kanye and Drake’s album comes out MIL will lose it’s relevance. But contrary to this opinion, the MIL album has gone back to the top 20 on the billboard chart, closing at no. 17 and the track ESSENCE has gone platinum in US.
ESSENCE has sold over a million copies in US alone, and the belief is that it will yet go double platinum in US. The total streams across platforms is now very close to 1B streams. What a feat this was for BIG WIZ, and a win for Afrobeats in general.
The album which has spent 45 weeks on the billboard equalling Fela’s ‘Balck President’ as most charting album by a Nigerian on billboard will enter it’s 46 weeks to make Wizkid the Nigerian with the most charting album on Billboard. What a time to be alive!
