Wizkid, the Grammy award-winning Nigerian artiste, has revealed why he named his recently released album, ‘More Love Less Ego’.


The ‘Bad To Me’ crooner released his fifth studio album last Friday, after months of teasing.

In a chat with Apple Music, the 32-year-old singer said the title of the album was to show “what the world needs actually at this time”.

While making reference to the insecurity issues bedeviling Africa, Wizkid said ‘More Love, Less Ego’ is therapeutic project that should “heal” the world.


“The phrase ‘More Love Less Ego’ is part of my life, it is like a progression. The last one was ‘Made In Lagos’, that is where I’m from. You already know where I’m from,” he said.

“It’s just to show you what the world needs actually at this time, right now, at this moment. It’s absolutely more love and less ego.

“Everyone absolutely needs the expression right now and there’s more to crave. 2022 right now before our eyes, they are bombing people right now in Africa, it’s crazy. This is the album that helps to heal things.”


With several hit projects and awards, Wizkid has established himself as a household name in the global music industry.

The ‘Fever’ crooner’s four other studio albums include ‘Superstar’ (2011), ‘Ayo’ (2014), ‘Sounds From The Other Side’ (2017), and ‘Made In Lagos’ (2020).

Made In Lagos’ got two nominations at the 2022 edition of the Grammy Awards.
