Bumper to Bumper
This track featuring Don jazzy was released in 2008 and remains one of Wande coal’s best hit tracks ever. This track got a lot of people dancing back then and remained at the top of music charts and playlists for weeks.
This song was his first single off the “Mushin 2 Mohit” album and has been described as one of the greatest love songs ever written by a Nigerian. The song is one of those songs you can never get tired of listening to no matter how many times you’ve heard it. The song is emotional with a deep message in the lyrics, carried along with Wande Coal’s soprano voice which made a lot of fans like the track more.
Who Born The Maga
This track was from his debut album Mushin 2 Mo’hits, released in 2009. As at that time, the slang ‘maga’ was newly introduced and singing sensation Wande Coal decided to express himself in the song using the slang in a contrasting way. The song remains the favourite of many.
Kiss Your Hands Featuring R2bees
Wande Coal was regarded as a vocal monster for this song released in 2010. With his high tenor voice incorporated in the song, the song became a hit and Ghanaian music duo, R2Bees were glad to have a collaboration with the black diamond star.
Wande Coal released one of his latest tracks ‘Iskaba’ in 2016. It was carved out from ‘Bakassi‘ which is a slang. The song makes you shake your body to the rhythm and the video was nicely shot and produced. Although some of his fans say the video is a remake of Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars, the Afrobeat sound is nice and the Michael Jackson steps make you want to get up and do the dance.
