Nigerian music fans, brace yourselves for non-stop music projects in the second half of 2024! The year started slow, but things are about to explode with a wave of new albums from some of Afrobeats’ hottest stars.

Get ready to dance this summer! Asake joins the party with his highly-anticipated “Lungu Boy” album, dropping just before he kicks off his “Lungu Boy” tour in July. This will be Asake’s third album in just three years, solidifying his position as a rising force in Afrobeats.

Fireboy DML isn’t slowing down either. His yet-to-be-titled fourth album is on the horizon, fueled by the already-released singles “Everyday” and “Obaasima” that have been burning up the airwaves. Patience is a virtue, and Oxlade fans who’ve been waiting for his debut album, “Oxlade From Africa,” will finally be rewarded this year after a slight delay.

But the party doesn’t stop there. Wizkid, a global Afrobeats icon, is gearing up to release “Morayo,” an album dedicated to his late mother. This promises to be a heartfelt and introspective project from the award-winning artist.

This is just a glimpse of the musical smorgasbord Nigerian music fans can expect in the coming months. From established superstars to rising talents, the second half of 2024 is shaping up to be a golden age for Afrobeats. So, get your playlists ready, because Nigerian music is about to take over!
