Wizkid was just 21 years old when he released his debut album, Superstar. The Nigerian wunderkind sang and wrote music at the tender age of 11. By his early twenties, he has been releasing critically-acclaimed work via an independent record label. By 2017, Wizkid made his breakthrough upon releasing his third album, Sounds from the Other Side. The album contains EDM, afro beats, and hip-hop elements reminiscent of a Caribbean-influenced work. The album debuted at number 2 on Billboard’s World Albums chart and number 5 on the Heatseekers. It also entered the Billboard 200, placing at a moderate 107. Besides the U.S., they entered the charts in five other countries, including the U.K. and Canada. Thanks to his work with Sounds from the Other Side, Wizkid won Best R&B/Pop Album at the prestigious Nigerian awarding organization, The Headies.
In 2020, Wizkid released his follow-up record, Made in Lagos. The fourth studio album features guest performances by renowned performers, such as Burna Boy, H.E.R., Skepta, and Ella Mai. According to critics, the highly-regarded album promoted “culture and globalization.” Moreover, through this effort, Wizkid could balance his roots and big pop influences. This phenomenal work has earned Wizkid his first Grammy Award nomination for Best Global Music Album. Upon its release, Made in Lagos topped the Billboard World Albums chart and peaked at number 28 on the Billboard 200.
