Here are top features that prove Wande Coal Has The Best Voice in Nigerian Pop
Kiss You Hand- R2bees
This is one of the best Ghana X Nigeria music collaborations to date. This song made R2bees popular in the music scene and is one of the many pieces of evidence that Wande Coal is a vocal beast.
Anything he’s put his high tenor on (especially in music features) has been a smash, and our in-house talents aren’t the only ones who can attest to his studio wizardry.
Ghanaian music duo, R2Bees, were among the Africans who were fortunate enough to have the black diamond star murder the hook of their hit single “Kiss Your Hand.”
Music Messiah- DJ Neptune
“Music Messiah” produced by Dapiano is an Afro-Amapiano tune that sees DJ Neptune enlist Wande Coal who sings in different melodies about being a music lord.
Every word Wande spoke on this song hold weight because time and time again, he has proven to the salvation the Nigerian Music industry needs.
Wonderful- Larry Gaaga ft Sarkodie
In 2018, after dominating streets with the 2Baba and Burna Boy-assisted “Baba Nla“, Larry Gaaga enlisted Wande Coal and Sarkodie for ‘Wonderful”
While Sarkodie delivered on the song thanks to his sweet melodious rap, it was Wande Coal’s catchy hook that was the song’s selling point.
Wake Up- Flavour
Although it isn’t really Wande’s song, it was nonetheless Wande’s song. Flavour was able to hold his own on the high-octane track, but it was Coal’s vocals that stole the stage.
Booty Call- Mohits all Stars
With this one, we’ve just made all the Mo Hits fans cry. Booty Call was one of several outstanding Mo Hits posse tracks, but what set this one apart was Wande’s role as captain of the ship. Wande’s singing about backside will make you feel a certain manner.
This is one of the songs that really buttressed Wande Coal’s vocal prowess after its release as a single, making him the golden child of the industry.
My Woman, My Everything- Patoranking
Patoranking’s muscular ragga-rap might easily eclipse a less acrobatic singer but Coal, whose own rap-singing, over the thundering beat, matches his cohorts in passion and vibrance.
There is something about Wande Coal’s verse as it brought the song to life with his angelic vocals.

Iskaba- DJ Tunez
A large number of artists who rose to prominence at the same time as Wande have since fallen away.
This is due to the fact that they lack the flexibility to shift their sound in the same way that Coal has.
Coal’s mastery of his art is evident in this Spellz-produced single, as he is able to adapt to a new wave while maintaining his own style.
For Me- Wizkid
The StarBoy, Wizkid, and Wande Coal have always had phenomenal chemistry, and it didn’t start after they shared the stage at Wizkid’s sold-out event at the Royal Albert Hall; rather, this chemistry dates back to Wizkid’s debut album Superstar, which was released under the EME imprint in 2011.
The two collaborated on “For Me” and it is a beautiful record to listen to as Wande Coal was interestingly an inspiration for Wizkid and the two gave one of the best collaborations of the decade.
Who You Epp- Olamide, Phyno
When Olamide started the ‘Who You Epp” challenge in 2016, one of the outstanding verses came from Wande Coal. It’s no surprise that he was featured on the official song.
Despite being on the track with two incredible rappers, Wande Coal stood up to the challenge, giving Olamide and Phyno a run for their money.
Spell- Fireboy DML
Just like Wizkid, Fireboy DML is a descendant of Wande Coal’s musical family and it was a thing of great joy to see them finally collaborate.
Off his Sophomore album, Fireboy teamed up with Wande Coal on the Pheelz-produced Afro-fusion tune. Wande Coal takes his vocals on a journey with his verse as he proves why he is always hailed for his vocals.
