Wizkid, the award-winning Nigerian musician, says P2J, the producer of his ‘Made in Lagos’ (MIL), was sceptical about the success of the album before it was released.


In October 2020, Wizkid dropped MIL, his fourth album. The project has enjoyed global success since its release.

The ‘Ojuelegba’ crooner would later drop an 18-track deluxe version of the project, which featured Justin Bieber, the Canadian music star.

‘Essence’, a track of the critically-acclaimed album, also had an impressive run, snagging numerous awards and awards.


In a recent interview with Apple Music, Wizkid said he recorded “90 percent” of the album with P2J, the Nigerian-British producer, born Richard Isong.

Wizkid said before the album was released, he had a conversation with the record producer during which P2J opened up on his fears about the project.

“When I put out that album, I remember I had a conversation with P2J. We made the album, 90% of the album together. And he was like, “Oh bro, I’m not really sure. I’m nervous. I’m not really sure if the people are going to love the sound.” I’m like, “Are you alright?!” he said.


“This is good music. They’re going to f****** love it. You don’t even have to think about that.”

The music star disclosed that the success of the album has made him appreciate his decision to integrate a new approach in his music.

“So, after putting that out and seeing okay, yeah, people really love good music. So it just helps you get better and better at what you do. So, yeah. I feel the change and difference every day, man,” he added.

Wizkid also said he was convinced the album would be a success during the production despite the fact that he was adopting a different sound.


“I felt it coming. I would say I’m lying if I didn’t feel it coming because it took me three years to work on that album,” he said.

“So, I felt like there was going to be a shift, but I didn’t know how it would come. Because I knew that it was kind of like a different… it wasn’t a different sound, but it was a more matured sound from what I used to make.”
