Wizkid Postpones Release of 3rd Studio Album

One of Nigeria’s top artists that promised to release his third studio album in September has announced its postponement to next year, 2016.
Starboy CEO Wizkid has cancelled the September date of his album release, according to him, because he was inspired by 2Face Idibia’s all-star 40th birthday celebration at Eko Hotels and Suites last Sunday.


Wizkid cited the impact 2Face has made in the Nigerian music industry, noting that it would require more commitment to emulate it, hence the need to return to the drawing board.

The Ojuelegba hit singer posted a photo from the event’s red carpet, captioning it: “They never stop trying to bring me down, but God’s light forever shine! Celebrated the legend 2face Idibia1 last night! Epic! Made me realize how much I need to f**k the game up! So I’m moving my album to sometime next year! What a time to be alive.”

Wizkid’s album is one of the more anticipated ones this September, considering the array of international superstars expected to feature on it.

According to him, he plans to release instead an EP that would house ten songs and their videos.
