All You Need to Know about Wizkid’s New Album “More Love Less Ego”

September 28, 2022

We’re officially entering a new Wizkid era, and y’all will have to call me Gal Gadot because I don’t know how to act right now. Almost two years after dropping his best album yet, Made in Lagos, Wizkid is set to drop a follow-up, More Love Less Ego (#MLLE) and the streets are going crazy. 

The Grammy award winner recently previewed tracks from the album at a show in London (Ayodeji, Lizzie’s body is not even cold yet) and here’s all the hot tea I’ve been able to get from people who attended since my own visa didn’t come on time. 

There’s an Ayra Starr feature that’ll have everybody in a chokehold 

Ayra Starr wasn’t playing when she said, “E dey rush,” because, omo, her cup has turned into a swimming pool. Just hours after releasing the remix to Bloody Samaritan with THEE Kelly Rowland, the gist getting to us from the late Queen Lizzie’s compound has it that Ayra is on a banging track off #MLLE

Remember how Essence turned Tems into a global superstar? It looks like Ayra Starr is in her emi lo kan era

Chances are this album will get you pregnant 

What is it with artists wanting to get everyone pregnant? First, it was CKay with Sad Romance, and now we’re hearing #MLLE is filled with baby-making music. Cerelac is expensive, dears. Conduct yourselves wisely this winter. 

Watch out for a song called Balance. E get why 

People lucky enough to attend Wizkid’s show have been going on about a track called Balance. It’s rare to see a track blow up weeks before it drops, but with how things are going, Balance might just be a hit before it leaves Wizkid’s memory card. 

Naira Marley on a Wizkid song? O por 

Marlians, arise, don’t waste your master’s leg work. The one and only Naira Marley is set to make an appearance on Wizkid’s #MLLE, and I don’t know why this collaboration didn’t happen earlier. Best believe this song is already number one on my Detty December playlist.

The album release date is rumoured to be October 29, 2022

No official date has been confirmed yet, but the streets are saying it’ll drop on or before October 29, 2022. Honestly, it sounds very on brand, considering Made in Lagos dropped on October 30, 2020. One way or the other, this album must drop this year or we protest. 

This album is for lovers. Single people, please leave this place

Beyoncé has asked us to get cuffed up this season, and now it looks like Wizkid’s #MLLE will be our final reminder to find a significant other before matching pyjamas season starts in December. This is a challenge I’m willing to tackle head-on, which means I have approximately 30 days to fall in love. 

There’s a Travis Scott feature on the album 

Wizkid is known for big international features, so it’s not shocking that Travis Scott is on #MLLE. I can bet it’s just the first of many international collaborations on the project. 

There’s a song that has something to do with flowers and it slaps 

Is the name of this song Flower, or is it about flowers? These are the critical questions, and I feel it’s time we enlist the CIA, FBI, NAFDAC, EFCC and Kiki Mordi to do some serious investigations. Ayodeji, confess!
