Fans in Nigeria, Africa and the world at large are ecstatic at the good news as the release of the album has been long awaited.
Prior to this announcement, On October 14, Nigerian Afro-pop star, Wizkid said that the release of his album, ‘Made In Lagos’ which was initially slated for October 15 would be postponed, although a specific date was not stated at the time.
In a hearty message, the 30-year-old Afro-pop singer explained to his fans reasons for the postponement, owing to the movement tagged #EndSARS – to put an end to the atrocities committed by operatives of the SARS unit of the Nigerian police.
