Clearly, Burna Boy and Fireboy DML have helped cemented the fact that 2020 is a super year for music albums. Irrespective of the fact that COVID-19 tried to steal our shine- tried because we still got the glow-up – we have sworn to quit looking at the past and look ahead to what 2020 has got in store for us musically speaking.


Album: Made In Lagos

Release date: TBA

Its been years and all we have from Wizkid is still a promise for Made in Lagos. Starboy as he is fondly called keeps teasing his fans with a new album but asides from one single here and a feature with DJ Tunez there, no album has been forthcoming. The 16th of July, the day Wizkid promised us made in Lagos seems like a whole year ago. We believe he doesn’t have anything to prove to his fans and critics alike – he already did that in about 3-4 albums ago – as Burna Boy said in a video while chilling with Wizkid; “You no get anything to prove”.


Album: A Better Time

Release date: TBA

Davido, the owner of record label 30 BG needs no introduction. Davido, the one and only Omo baba olowo OBO was among the artistes that promised a july release date, making his fans giddy with excitement. Davido promised us “A Better Time” which sounds more like a continuation to his previous album “A Good Time”, and hopefully a better sound. Hello David, when are you giving us that sound?

Tiwa Savage

Album: Celia

Release date: August 28, 2020.

If you can recall vividly, you would reme,ber that Tiwa promised us an album for the first or second quarter of 2020. And she would be right on track if what she tweeted on her twitter page goes according to her plan. The Nigerian superstar, Tiwa Savage, on the 18th of August via her twitter page announced the release date of her 12-track album with features from Davido, Dice Ailes, Sam Smith, Steff London, and Naira Marley.

DJ Cuppy

Album: Original Copy

Release date: TBA

Florence Otedola who is the daughter of Nigerian businessman, Femi Otedola, is a popular Disc Jockey with some hits under her belt. DJ Cuppy announced that she would be releasing her debut album with Apple Music franchise, Platoon.

Cuppy believes she has a point to prove by releasing this album and this is what she has to say; “My debut album is about great music. My last song was Gelato and honestly, I have a point to prove. I don’t want people to get it twisted, just because I am a fun person doesn’t mean that I am not a credible musician. I haven’t been doing this for a year for fun; I have art to create and I cannot wait for this album”.

Truth is, we believe it too because she has got 13 artistes on this album proving she’s serious about her craft.

Adekunle Gold

Album: Afro-pop Vol. 1

Release date: August 21, 2020

On September 26, 2019, Adekunle Gold promised his fans a new album via his twitter page with this caption; “Pay attention to my project. It is coming soon”. We do not think there’s a date earlier than the 21st of August; the date he set aside to release his 3rd studio album tagged Afr-pop Vol. 1. This album will be his first album under EMI. And if you do not know, it is a 10-track album.

Who is super excited about this news?
