Winning!!! Less That 24 Hours After It’s Release Wizkid 2nd Album “AYO” Climbs To Number 1 On The iTunes Chart



Wizkid dropped his highly anticipated 2nd album “AYO” less than 24 hrs ago, way ahead of it’s scheduled Sept. 23rd release date. There’s already been a lot of speculation about whether the album was leaked or if he was trying to pull a Beyonce with the surprise release. Shortly after the album dropped on iTunes, Wizkid tweeted,

They leaked my shit!!! It’s all Good still!

He later deleted the tweet!

From what I know it’s impossible to leak an album to iTunes (the world’s largest online music retailer) and as Jaguda rightly pointed out if the album was leaked why is it still being sold on iTunes?

In my opinion it was all just a marketing ploy to get people buzzed about the album and also to prevent it from actually leaking not fake leaking on iTunes where it is being sold for $9.99

Anyways leaked or not, Wizzy is definitely winning! Less than 24 hours after the album dropped it is already number 1 on the iTunes World chart. P-Square’s “Double Trouble” is Number 4.


Wizkid Pulls A Beyonce & Drops His Highly Anticipated Second Album Ahead Of Schedule On iTunes!

Wizkid is taking a page out of the Beyonce handbook on “how to drop your album when your fans least expect it”. If you recall Beyonce dropped her 5th studio album last December in the dead of the night on iTunes when no one expected it, with absolutely no promo beforehand. It went on top iTunes charts globally and become the best selling album ever on iTunes

We knew Wizzy’s album was dropping soon but we didn’t realize it would be today!

The music industry in Nigeria is obviously still a male dominated field, only two females made NJO top 10 list Tiwa Savage & Yemi Alade! Where are all the other females? Seyi Shay, Emma Nyra, Mo’ Cheddah?!
