Wizkid dethrones Fela

Following his most recent billboard triumph, Nigerian superstar Wizkid, has finally dethroned Afro icon Fela Kuti.

According to Billboard, the musician smashed Fela Kuti's record with his Made In Lagos album.

Wizkid's album spent 46 weeks on the US World Billboard Album Charts, breaking Fela's 45-week record with the album Black President.

Made In Lagos, was released in October 2020, whereas Fela Kuti's record was released in 1999.

Wizkid's feat comes only hours after his Made in Lagos deluxe album reclaimed the top spot on Apple Music Nigeria last week. Made In Lagos, has been a break through project for African pop music and afrobeats in particular.
