A fantastic run from last year has included a BET win, an invite to the biggest music festival, Coachella, a greatly hyped album and of course who knows a possible Grammy Award win in 2020.
But who can stop Burna Boy right now? Wizkid.
While many felt the Starboy was cheated last year, he equally had a wonderful run in 2018 however the impact of Burna Boy’s Ye was a major factor that contributed to Burna Boy taking home the honours for last year.
Many would have expected #Wizkid to return with more zeal and most especially, release music even more consistently than last year’s, however, he took a break to complete his album, the collaborations he’s been involved in have impacted the music space.
Low with Larry Gaaga is perhaps one of the best records we’ve had this year and the effect of the Beyonce Collaboration, Brown Skin Girl, is an overall win for the Nigerian Music Industry. And his recent singles, Ghetto Love and Joro are viral hits.
But how can Wizkid take back the crown from Burna Boy?
With Made In Lagos wizkid can possibly take back his position.
Many industry execs and producers who worked on the Made In Lagos album hold it in high regard. Killertunes, Northboi and Burna Boy’s frequent collaborator, Kel P refer to it as an “insane” project.
While we can all agree that the African Giant album was all about the media buzz, if we strip away the hype, we probably have an average project.
If it happens that the Made In Lagos album drops this year with the right media buzz and proper distribution, it could make an appearance on Billboard charts, a feat African Giant failed to achieve.
Yet it still looks like Burna Boy might be coasting to victory at the end of this year owing to Wizkid and Davido’s absence from the scene at the beginning of this year.
But Can Wizkid Break Burna Boy’s Dominance On The Music Scene With His Made In Lagos Album?
Or Burna Boy Might Just Extend His Rule Till 2020?
