Christmas came early for Wizkid fans and general Nigerian music lovers! In the wee hours of today, December 6, the acclaimed artist of the decade and one of Nigeria’s biggest music export, Wizkid released a new surprise project titled “SoundMan Vol.1.” And although this isn’t the project fans have been expecting from Wizkid, they still can’t complain.
The EP is a 7-track project released under Wizkid’s Starboy imprint. So technically, it isn’t an official Wizkid project but Starboy’s. In fact, on Apple Music, the EP is titled “SoundMan Vol.1 (feat.Wizkid)“. For the most part across the project, Wizkid appears alone, but in others, he gets vocal assistance from Chronixx and Black Jerzee who didn’t fail to deliver.
Also, he works with a range of producers, some of the best in the business at the moment, including Blaq Jerzee, DJ Tunez, Kel-P and London.
Wizkid also took to his Twitter to announce that the second volume of this project would be released before the long-awaited and much-teased album, “Made In Lagos.” “Made In Lagos.” Vol 2 soon touch before MIL! ❤️🖤🦅 ” he wrote on Twitter.
