As 2018 kicks in fully in the music industry part of what we would be looking out for are the various album projects that would be launched during the course of the year.
As always, there are some of our beloved artists we are lying patiently in wait for their albums. Here are some of those LPs to watch out for in 2018.
Davido – TBD
After having a hugely successful year with back to back hits, DMW honcho is very well prepared to bless music lovers and fans with his highly anticipated sophomore album. Davido had earlier hinted his second studio album will come in the first quarter of 2018. A second studio album from Davido is long overdue, perhaps the ‘Fia’ singer will exploit his hot form and drop a banging LP which would be of course backed by global music giant Sony Music.
Mayorkun – TBD
Just like his mentor and boss enjoyed a enormous success last year, Mayorkun was pretty much relevant during the past year. The singer stayed on top of his game with hit records which helped his brand become a household name. Now that Mayorkun has the unbroken attention of Nigerians it is safe for the ‘Mama’ crooner to maintain steam with his debut album. After announcing he has already recorded 80 percent of the songs for his debut album, Mayorkun should officially release the project before the second half of the year. This is one project to look out for in the new year.
Vector – Teslim
Teslim! Teslim!! Teslim!!! Olarewaju Ogunmefun aka Vector has been very equivocal about his fourth studio album TESLIM (The Energy Still Lives In Me) on social media. From the look of things the self dubbed ‘King Kong’ will be taking things a notch or two higher from where he dropped it on his last album ‘Lafiaji’. The Headies Awards ‘Lyricist of The Year’ winner hopefully wants to make an album that proves Hip-hop isn’t dead in Nigeria as the belief is these days. Vector is steady building the anticipation for the project and this only rouses our curiosity. ‘TESLIM’ should better be what we hope it would be because are on the lookout for it.
Kiss Daniel – Evolution
May 2018 would make it exactly two years since Kiss Daniel dropped his highly acclaimed debut studio album ‘New Era’. Although the hitmaker has had an end of year squabble with his former record label G-Worldwide, we are sure Kiss Daniel will move on fine with his plans. All things being his sophomore album ‘Evolution’ should be released during the course of the year. So far hits like ‘Sofa’, ‘Yeba’ No Do , 4 Days are singles taken off the yet to be released ‘Evolution’ album.
