2023 came with numerous album releases, from heavy hitters to upcoming acts. We expected some of our biggest stars to join the wagon, but instead, they gave us dust. Here’s a short list of artists who owe us a feast in 2024.


It’s been four years since Warrior. But on January 3, the veteran singer took to Instagram to announce his 2024 plan to release a new album. Motivated by the vim and excellence of new-gen artists, 2Baba said, “Na so we no dey gree for anybody this year o.”


She dropped two singles towards the end of 2023, and it’s been over a month since she teased her album on X. Let’s have it, please.

This guy made noise in 2023 with bangers like My Darling, Angelus and Ohema. We heard him. Now, he needs to put his artistry into a full-length body of work. We’re ready for Victony.

Tiwa Savage

Tiwa Savage may be killing features up and down, but she needs to drop a new album. Water & Garri, an EP, came out in 2021. That’s a long time to be stuck with only groceries. Maybe banga soup and starch-type albums this year?

Odunsi (the Engine)

The three-track SPORT EP he dropped in December 2023 was just a tease. We see he’s come out of ghost mode and has been appearing on his socials lately. He also produced Jazz Up off Pan African Rockstar (Lady Donli’s latest album) back in September 2023. We hope he’s back to feed us with another innovative album like rare. (2018).

Peruzzi has shown himself to be a brilliant singer-songwriter and composer. With three albums in his catalogue and over 252 songwriter credits on hits like Nwa Baby, Risky and Unavailable, he’s defining himself as one of Afrobeats’ top writers. But it’s been over three years since Rum & Boogie, or is he not doing singing again?

Ayra Starr

Sabi Girl had a successful 2023 taking her music around Africa, Australia and North America, and featuring on everything from Girl Next Door with Tyla to Big FU with David Guetta. We love these records, but a new album will bang differently.
