Wizkid’s triumphant album, Made in Lagos, gets certified Silver in the United Kingdom by the British Record Industry Trusts Show (BRITS) for selling 60,000 units. The LP was released on October 30, 2020.
Made in Lagos continues its outstandingly enigmatic run after having the entire 2020 calendar year as its footstool, setting records home and abroad, especially with the crossover hit single—”Essence”; Wizkid begins 2021 on a grand note by having his fourth studio-album certified Silver in the UK.
It takes exactly: 1 year, 2 months and 16 days for Made in Lagos to achieve this feat. It joins “African Giant” by Burna Boy as the only pair of Nigerian albums to sell 60k units, earning themselves a Silver certification by the BRITS.
