Wande Coal tells Fans to expect more from him

Popular talented Nigerian songwriter, singer and performer, Wande Coal, on Wednesday, wished his fans a happy new month and promised to dash out more videos and hits soon.

He tweeted on his tweeter handle @wandecole “Happy new month guys!! Videos and more hits coming your way soon.’’

Coal was born on Oct. 18, 1985, as Oluwatobi Wande Ojosipe in Lagos Island, Lagos State, to Chief Ibukun Olufunto and Mrs Omolara Oluwayemisi Ojosipe.

The first of two children, Wande Coal had his primary education at Staff Nursery and Ijaniki Primary School, and secondary education at Federal Government College, Lagos, Lagos State.

He then went on to University of Lagos (UNILAG), where he studied Curriculum Studies.

Like most great musicians, he started singing in the teenage choir at his Church.

He got his break into the Nigerian entertainment industry as a dancer and
improved on his vocal skills and got signed to Don Jazzy’s Mo’hits records in 2006.

He featured on D’banj’s Rundown/Funk you up album on singles such as “Loke’’, “tonosibe’’ and “why me’’.

Being signed to Mo’ Hits records, he is also a member of the Mo’ Hits All Stars and played a major role in the released CV (Curriculum Vitae) album.

His first single of the CV album “Ololufe’’ had been described as one of the greatest love songs ever written by a Nigerian.

The musician later released his debut album `Mushin to Mo’Hits’ which was widely received across Nigeria, UK and the USA.

The `Bumper to Bumper’  and `Taboo’ hits maker also recorded tracks with other Nigerian artists including Ikechukwu, Naeto C, Dr SID, D’Prince, Wizkid, Olamide, Flavour and many more.

Following a fallout between record label executives Don Jazzy and D’banj in 2012, Coal, Dr SID and D’Prince signed on to Don Jazzy’s new Record Label Marvin Records with the addition of Tiwa Savage.

The`Who Born the Maga’ crooner left Mavin Records in 2013 and in October same year, he released a single called “Baby Face’’.

After leaving Marvin Records, Coal established his own record label called Black Diamond Entertainment.

In 2014, he dropped his sophomore album “Wanted’’, arguably one of Nigeria’s most anticipated album of all time.
