The Most Hilarious Reactions To Wizkid’s “Made In Lagos” Not Dropping At 11:11

October 30, 2020

Wizkid’s “Made In Lagos” is finally out. First, we thought he was going to drop the album on July 16th after a post on his Instagram stories revealing the date. But he just dropped Smile with H.E.R.

Wizkid's Made In Lagos Initial Announcement

Then on September 16th, our hopes were shot up again when he dropped a teaser for the album on Twitter.

The next day, and a couple of other times, he tweeted a date:

But because of the #EndSARS protests happening around the proposed dates, he announced on Twitter that it wouldn’t be a nice time to release the album as we had bigger issues in front of us. Nice move.

Earlier yesterday though, he took Nigerians by surprise with an out-of-the-blue announcement on Twitter. Wizkid: Made in Lagos: 11:11pm Tonight.

Machala was dropping an album, so nobody was about to be caught asleep by 11:11pm. Nigerians waited online with some users even having countdowns to 11:11pm, but they were about to be disappointed because 11:11 came and nothing happened. No music nowhere. Here are some of the most hilarious reactions from Nigerians who stayed up late to listen to Wizkid’s “Made In Lagos”.

No matter the context, this picture is always funny:

Four minutes after 11:11pm, people already started having second thoughts…

And then, because of Wizkid’s singular act, every Yoruba man got dragged by the neck. What have Yoruba men done to you people?

This one was specifically for Wizkid, though.

To make things interesting, Wizkid decided to delete one of the tweets announcing that the album would be released last night. Now people were in full panic mode.

There’s a hilarious Nollywood clip for every situation. Look at this one:

Or does Wizkid just like watching the world burn?

People really started contemplating if Zion, Wizkid’s child, had deleted the album files.

Was Wizkid hoarding the album like Nigerian government officials have been hoarding COVID-19 palliatives?

Boluwatife, please to our rescue and help us release this album.

But perhaps Wizkid had dropped the album and we just needed Agent Fashola to help us find it…

QUIZ: What Will Fashola Find For You?

It’s in moments like this that we appreciate the voice feature on Twitter because this is an absolute gem.

But some people found other ways to download the album early and some of them were disappointed.

Is that really Ayinde Wasiu?

Apparently though, Wizkid meant 11:11pm London time, and one hour later, the album dropped on all platforms. Have you listened to Wizkid’s “Made in Lagos”?
