Written by on August 25, 2021

Wizkid’s fourth studio album, Made In Lagos, has clinched the No. 1 spot on the Billboard world album chart, ten months after its release.


Released in October 2020, Made In Lagos gained international recognition early this year after several international stars drummed support for ‘Essence’, the eleventh song in the album.


‘Essence’, featuring Nigerian breakthrough star, Tems, made history by being the first Nigerian song on the Billboard Hot 100 and Global 200 music chart in July.


Also in August, Wizkid featured Canadian star Justin Bieber on the remix of Essence. 

The album which has spent a total of 41 weeks on the World album chart had debuted on the number two spot in November 2020.


It was also the first African album to debut on the Spotify Global Album chart at top ten position barely a week after its release.
