Wizkid drops the visual to his latest body of work, ‘Made In Lagos Deluxe’… Watch and Enjoy the Short film by Kuukua Eshun and Big Wiz!
This video for Made In Lagos Deluxe released by Starboy Entertainment, home to Nigeria’s superstar Wizkid, is a combination of three music videos; ANOTI, MOOD & STEADY.
As Afrobeats continues to grow, Wizkid wants the world to remember where it came from and where it’s going next…
Released in August 2021, the deluxe version adds four new songs to the mix: “Mood”, where he’s joined by rising Afrofusion singer Buju; “Anoti”; “Steady”; and a remix of his Tems collab “Essence” which also enlists Justin Bieber.
ANOTI – has the same rhythmic theme as other songs on the “Made In Lagos” album. Judging by the production, ANOTI sounds like a song that didn’t make the original cut of the album. Nothing special about this song except for the production line and the mumbling signature of Bella Shmurda.
MOOD feat. Buju – Not only is this collaboration anticipated but it actually meets up to the expectation and sets the tone for the other songs on the deluxe version of the album. The chemistry between Buju and Big Wiz is commendable. The Afro-R&B production on this record has a chilling vibe to it and you can’t deny the mood once the record starts playing; because you will want it on repeat. It’s A Big Mood!
STEADY – this is the stand out record on the deluxe version; It has that Essence magic. The production is an interpolation of a Drakish R&B style of beat laced with Afrobeat elements; it’s a good work of art in beat sequencing that worked. Big Wiz kept the mood on steady, as the beat goes on and on, with a saxophone playing at background and cutting through Tay Iwar‘s vocal.
