And the wait is over (almost). Wizkid has finally decided to unveil the artwork and tracklisting to his forthcoming sophomore project ‘Ayo’.
Following up from his debut release ‘Superstar’ back in 2011, Wizkid takes things cultural on the album cover, where he is seen in Yoruba traditional attire with three women dressed as Olori's (Princesses) as he champions his Yoruba ancestry.
Wiz took to his instagram page over the weekend to reveal what fans have been waiting for, for over 2 years now. In a recent interview the Starboy also revealed that this will be his last album under record label - EME, before he ventures out to releasing his projects under his own record label - Starboy.
‘Ayo’ the self-titled LP which simply means "joy", doesn't come with a release date as of yet, but has fans buzzing to know that it's coming soon. Femi Kuti, Seyi Shay, Akon, Banky W, Phyno, Tyga and Wale all make feature appearances on the new album, and the album will see production from Sarz, Shizzi, Uhuru, Spellz, Legendury Beatz, Del B, Dr Frabz and Maleek Berry.
With seven songs off the album already released, it'll be interesting to see what Wizkid has up his sleeve with the remaining 12.
