Nigerian afropop phenomenon Wande Coal has come out with a new EP, five years after release his last big body of work, Wanted. The new EP, titled Realms, comes through producer Screwface’s Starstruck Management, as well as indie heavyweight EMPIRE.
Wande Coal, intimately know to fans as “Black Diamond” or “King Coal,” assembled a flawless set perfectly showing off the range he has acquired as a vocalist and songwriter over the years.
Nigerian producer Sarz, known for his collaborations with Wizkid, Beyoncé and Drake lends his expertise to the track “Vex,” a response to critics in the form of a delicious floor shaker. “Again” proves we’re all a sucker for romantic notions as the lyrically tender tune has amassed over 30 million streams, and a steady run on many African charts this year. The song also has a remix with Wale.
With an already impressive reputation attached to his name, fans of the artist are sure to be excited for what’s to come. Since he’s written Afropop essentials such as “Iskaba” released in 2017, and “So Mi So” in 2018, listeners are eager to hear where they will be taken this time around.
