GQ describe the self-acclaimed African Giants latest album as one that absolutely lives up to its name, stating that, “Burna Boy’s global sound somehow got even more universally enjoyable, slickly blending Afrobeat and dancehall rhythms, R&B sensibilities, hip-hop flows and reggae’s passion into a singular sound.”

As for Wizkid’s ‘Made in Lagos,’ it was described as his best album yet, stating that he, “Combines his global vision with a focus on Yoruba, Afro-Latin and Afrobeats percussion that, as the name ‘Made in Lagos’ asserts, makes the record feel like a real homecoming.”
