This September some of the biggest stars in Nigerian music will be dropping their albums. While some of them are eagerly-anticipated follow-ups to previously successful works, others are equally eagerly-anticipated debuts. Wonder why they all picked September.
Naij gives you a list of the top acts who chose September as their month to shine.
The Shoki singer comes first as his album drops today, September 1. The singer, who became famous off hit singles such as Rihanna, Shuperu and Shoki, finally drops his debut album, ‘Ghen Ghen’. The Sprisal Music act visited Naij.com recently where he spoke about the album among others.
At the pace Wizzy is going, he may soon be famous for being more of an international act than a local one, much like soul singer Asa. In recent months, he has been associated with international acts like Drake, Skepta, Alicia Keys and Chris Brown. Fans are looking forward to his album coming out this September but at the same time fear another postponement.
This album will be his first under his Star Boy label having previously dropped two under Empire Mates Entertainment. With the momentum around Wizkid next album, it might be the biggest from a Nigerian artiste with expected collaborations from superstars like Drake, Chris Brown and several others.
The Chocolate City returnee promised fans a September date for his 5th studio album ‘Return Of The Gods’. Fans anticipate a strong comeback from the talented rapper who won the much coveted Lyricist On The Roll award at the last Headies. Will the album confirm his comeback? It’s a waiting game.
Having dropped his debut album, Omo Baba Olowo, a couple of years ago, the HKN boss has been growing from strength to strength, scooping all the major awards locally and internationally. With monster hits to match his momentum, one begins to wonder what kept him so long from dropping his follow-up album. The ‘Baddest’ album is arguably the most anticipated album of the year. It is expected to have some surprise appearances. Fingers crossed.
The MMMG star also picked a September date for the release of his third studio album. The first winner of the maiden edition of MTN Project Fame is ready to relaunch his career after a brief layoff.
