Made In Lagos - fastest afrobeats album to reach 987,000,000 streams in 11 months

You all remember when Wizkid dropped made in Lagos this month last year? 

Since then the album keeps making waves even till now. The album will be one year old this month and it has achieved so much already

Wizkid has been very consistent since he broke into the limelights in 2009. The song that brought him so many fans and recognition then was "holla at your boy" under Empire mates entertainment (EME) which is owned by Nigerian music star, Banky W. 

Wizkid got signed into EME alongside Skales and they both did very well and are still doing well till date. 

It is obvious Wizkid knows what to do to remain relevant in the music industry and he has done just that. 

When he dropped Made in Lagos, he sounded a bit different from the Wizkid who dropped songs like ''pakurumo, and on top your matter" but then Wizkid had dropped Soundman EP to serve as a forerunner to made in Lagos so the audience would know what to expect. 

Coming down to this period, Made in Lagos hit 987,000,000 streams across 6 platforms in 11 months and guess what?, This is the fastest afrobeat to win this and don't forget Wizkid is the first afrobeats artist to debut on Billboard Hot 100.

Starboy for a reason after all.
