It is 2014 already and the Nigerian entertainment industry, particularly the music sector, is gearing up for a busy year. With some artistes failing to release their anticipated album in the previous year -2013, we expect loads of albums in 2014. PREMIUM TIMES takes a look at singers whose albums will most probably be released this year.

WizKid

Star Boy and EME artiste, Ayo 'Wizkid' Balogun, whose second studio album was postponed thrice in 2013, is expected to release the anticipated musical work this year. Expected to be loaded with international and local collaborations, and top notch productions from top producers, Wizkid's yet-to-be titled second album might go the way of the first album; an all hit musical work.

Wande Coal

Remember he trended worldwide on social network, Twitter, when he released three singles back in 2011. Wande who ended the year 2013 with a Glo endorsement deal after a split with his former label boss, Don Jazzy, is expected to release his second long awaited album under his Black Diamond imprint.

D'Banj

Popular singer, D'banj, who earlier told PREMIUM TIMES that he would be celebrating his 10th year anniversary of active service with an album, is not expected to disappoint his fans. After an average outing with his label compilation album, DKM, we hope his 4th long awaited album will take him back to the top.

Davido

Davido, who provided us with the controversial dance, Skelewu, in 2013 is expected to ride on the buzz his last two singles gave him and release his second album. Davido's second album, which might not be released until the last quarter of the year, is as anticipated as those that will be released before his.

Tuface

Regarded as the king of African pop, TuFace Idibia, who was in the news all through 2013 despite not releasing a single will hopefully give his fans something to listen to this year having last released his fourth album in 2011.

M.I

The vice president at Chocolate City released a mix tape, Illegal Music 2, in 201. His third studio album, which was expected last year, should be released this year. M.I is also expected to push His imprint, Luppy Records, further and might release a label compilation album as well.

Psquare

Twin sensational pop singers, Psquare, who had a busy 2013 as they toured America, Canada, Africa and engaged their long time partners are expected to hit their fans with their fifth studio album. With their impressive 2013 single, personally, the dancing duo should present their fans with a new album in 2014.

Sean Tizzle

After winning Headies 'Next Rated' awards, the Difference Entertainment artiste who broke into the mainstream music industry in 2013 with his hit single, Sho Le, and subsequent singles Mama e and Komole, will seek to test his feet more in the music waters with a full studio album which is expected to be backed with production from D'tunes.

Praiz

X3M music alternate artiste and MTN ambassador, Praiz, who had a decent 2013 with his multiple awards winning 'Rich and Famous' single is expected to release his debut album this year if tweets by his label boss, Steve Babaeko is any to go by.

Phyno

'No album but am getting millie... ' That's a line from Phyno's 'man of the year' song, and 2013 was his year as he rightly said. With chart topping and award winning singles, Phyno's debut album remains one of 2014's most anticipated albums. And before you forget, he narrowly missed out of Headies 'Next Rated' award category.
