There’s a long history of promised albums that took years to come or inevitably got shelved, never to see the light of day. So while there are definitely anticipated albums everyone would kill to hear, nothing is ever promised. Fingers crossed, though.
In no particular order, let’s take a look at the most anticipated Afrobeat albums
Davido – “A Better Time”
Davido had one of the most impressive tracklists on his previous album “A Good Time“, and till this very moment, it’s been topping every chart, from the U.K. to Canada, America, and every part of the world.
Adekunle Gold – “AfroPop Vol. 1”
Just take a look at the tracklist, it’s such a beaut.
Sheebah Karungi – “Samali”
Sheebah has offered fans an impression of what’s to come on the forthcoming album. So there’s a good chance fans get more music in that vein with this new album dubbed “SAMALI”
Not much has been revealed of Sheebah Karungi’s yet to be released music album, however she states that her #5th Album Might Turn Out To Be her Favorite So Far!!!
Release dates for the album are not yet disclosed but anytime from now, ITS DROPPING.
Wizkid – “Made In Lagos”

If his most recent track “Smile” is any sign of what’s to come, fans can expect tenacious, of course, some of the most audacious beats in the game.
Patoranking – “Three”
