“Made In Lagos” (No. 34) and “Twice As Tall” (No. 23) make it on NME’s ‘The 50 best albums of 2020’ list

No matter how dammed 2020 might have turned out to be, one thing that kept us going through (whether we admit it or not) is music and we have two of our music heavyweights to thank for that in Burna Boy and Wizkid.

Since they gained international recognition, they haven’t stopped releasing quality music and dishing out hits and quite rightfully, the recognitions keep showing they are doing something right.

Burna Boy’s and Wizkid’s 2020 record-setting album — “Twice As Tall” and “Made In Lagos” — respectivey have been chosen among The 50 best albums of 2020 by New Musical Express (NME) – a British film, music and culture organisation.

Burna Boy’s effort on “Twice As Tall” is described by NME as: “Here he blended fierce political proclamations with dancefloor-ready party anthems”, adding the fact the Burna Boy, born Damini Ogulu “was never overshadowed” irrespective of who was featured on the track with him, be it Naughty By Nature, Chris Martin or UK rapper, Stormzy. “Twice As Tall” is ranked No. 23 on NME‘s list.

“Twice As Tall” ranks 23 on NME‘s The 50 best albums of 2020.

On Wizkid’s part, his 3-year long anticipated album – “Made In Lagos” – is placed at No. 34 on The 50 best albums of 2020 by NME. Reason for MIL’s inclusion on their list states: “On ‘Made In Lagos’, Wizkid made a record for the grown and sexy gang. And with the title paying tribute to his origins, rich and velvety production that ranges from jazz to classic.”

“Made In Lagos” at No. 34 on NME‘s The 50 best albums of 2020.

It is no coincidence then as to why both albums are the most streamed Nigerian albums on Spotify for 2020.
