Wande Coal Biography

Wande Coal

Oluwatobi Wande Ojosipe, better known by his stage name Wande Coal, was born on October 18, 1985, and is a 36-year-old Nigerian musician and songwriter with a reputed net worth of $1.7 million. As a dancer, he received his first significant break in Nigeria’s entertainment sector. He then rose to fame as a singer thanks to his hit song “Ololufe.”

Wande Coal broke into the music scene as a skilled dancer, in contrast to many Nigerian musicians who rose to fame through singing. Coal began as a dancer despite being a young member of his church choir since he saw dancing as his first love.

When the singer joined Don Jazzy’s Mo Hits Record in 2006, his professional career really got underway. Wande worked with numerous reputable Nigerian musicians throughout his time with the famed label, including Wizkid, Dr. SID, D’Prince, Naeto C, and Ikechukwu. He appeared on a number of singles by popular musicians including D’banj. Tonosibe, Loke, and Why Me are a few of the single hits by D’banj in which Coal has appeared.

Wande Coal contributed significantly to moving the Mo Hits record label from one level of success to another as a member of the label. He was a key contributor to the “Curriculum Vitae (CV)” album and one of the record’s Allstars. His album’s lead single, “Ololufe,” is still regarded as one of the best and most popular love songs the Nigerian music scene has ever created.

In addition to “Olulofe,” Coal has released two studio albums throughout his career, in 2009 and 2015. His self-titled debut album earned very positive reviews in the USA, UK, and Nigeria. Six years later, the singer’s second album, “Wanted,” which featured artists including Burna Boy, AKA, Wizkid, and 2face, was released on the Black Diamond record label.

In 2012, Wande departed Don Jazzy’s Mo Hits Records after a disagreement between the label’s management, D’banj, and Don Jazzy. After his conflict with the Oliver Twist crooner, Don Jazzy launched Mavin Records, which was his next stop. Tiwa Savage, who was earlier signed to 323 entertainment, D’Prince, and Dr. SID are some of the other celebrities that have joined him at Mavin.

A few months after leaving Mavin Records, the Lagos-born hitmaker launched his debut single, Baby Face, in October 2013. Wanted, his second studio album, was released in 2015 on the Black Diamond label and received generally positive reviews.

Iskaba, Ballerz, and Turkey Nla are three of Coal’s most recent singles; they were all released between 2017 and 2018 under Black Diamond Entertainment.

Known as Oluwatobi Wande Coal, who was born Wande Ojosipe, received his early education at Staff Nursery before moving on to Ijaniki Primary School. The singer attended Federal Government College Lagos for his secondary schooling before being accepted to the University of Lagos (Unilag) to study Curriculum Studies. After finishing, he received his degree credential from the institution, but he ultimately chose to pursue a career in music.

Family Life

With a woman named Temitope Ogunnusi, Wande Coal fathered a young boy. Temitope had the singer’s child when she was 20 years old, according to a number of sources. She allegedly kept her pregnancy a secret from Coal until she gave birth to their son, who remarkably resembles the singer.

The singer later refuted the accusation in a statement that was made public, adding that Temitope was the one who abandoned their son after she got married to another guy. Temitope had claimed that the singer’s family had for years denied her access to the singer’s son.

Despite claims by several media that he married a different partner in November 2017 in Lagos, the musician may currently be single. Wande Coal hasn’t confirmed or denied the allegation, and it doesn’t seem like he’s in a rush.
