Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki has expressed his love for the new album released by Wizkid on Thursday.
Late last night, Wizkid dropped the highly anticipated album, much to the pleasure of his fans.
Originally scheduled for release on October 15, Wizkid dedicates the project to the citizens of Nigeria in light of the police brutality occurring in his beloved country.
“It has been beautiful to see Nigerians around the world coming together to protest against police brutality,” says Wizkid. “Unity is key. The youth of Nigeria need our collective voices to continue to shine a spotlight to what is happening inside the country. I want to play my part in this and in the movement for a better Nigeria, a better place to live for ourselves, our families – our communities. We will get through this together. Together we move. #endSARS.”
Barely 24 hours into the release, the album is already setting records and breaking other records set by Nigerian singers.
The album is currently ranked #3 on the US iTunes top albums, as at last check.
Saraki took to twitter on Friday to express his love for the new album released by Wizkid on Thursday.
He described the album as a brilliant end to what had been a long and eventful month for Nigerians.
Saraki said over the years, Davido had been like a son to him, and that he, Wizkid and other young Nigerian artistes kept pushing the boundaries in the entertainment sector.
He wrote: “Wizkid’s #MadeInLagos is a brilliant end to what has been a long and eventful month for all of us. Currently vibing to my favorite track on the album ‘#Grace.’
“Over the years, @Davido has been like a son to me. He, Wizkid and other young Nigerian artistes keep pushing the boundaries in our entertainment sector and making all of us proud! I also can’t wait for David’s album to drop next month!
“Let’s all celebrate #NigeriaToTheWorld.”
