Last year we discovered that singer/songwriter Wande Coal had a secret 6 year old son, simply known as Coal Jnr. But did you know that he only found out about the little boy when he was 2 years old?
Wande Coal who just dropped his highly anticipated second album made this revelation recently when appearing on MTV Base Real Talk. He told host Ehiz,
Well, I didn’t know I had a kid till he was 2 years old. When they brought him to me, he already looked like me. So when I found out, I knew I had to do something about it and then I took him to my mum and she’s been taking care of him.

Wande Coal’s highly anticipated second album “Wanted” dropped today, seven years after the release of his smash debut album – Mushin 2 Mohits! The album came out today and needless to say it’s been a long time coming!
Music critics and fans are hailing it as his best body of work to date. Some are already calling it the best Nigerian album of the year. Everyone has nothing but great this to say about the Wanted album.

The 22 year old took to Instagram to share the pic. But this photo isn’t simply a throwback, it also shows you how life can change. According to Davido he had to beg D’Prince & Wande to take this picture with him.

Back together for only a few minutes! But we’ll take what we can get.
After the shock breakup of Mo’ Hits in 2012 and further war of words between the principal parties D’Banj & Don Jazzy in the press, many people were convinced they would never preform or record together again.
But that day came sooner than expected when D’Banj, Don Jazzy & Wande Coal all decked out in white, got together for a surprise performance for the first time in nearly 4 years!
The surprise reunion occurred yesterday March 11, at the birthday party of Aremo Segun Oniru at the Eko Hotel and Suites. Their trio performed a medley of their hits much to the delight of the screaming crowd.
D’Banj shared the video on his Instagram shouting out his former label mates,
History had to be made on #TheGodfather Prince Aremo’s Birthday! Great performing with my brothers @donjazzy @wandecoal
