Wande Coal has also recorded tracks with other Nigerian  artists including ikechukwu, Naeto C, Dr SID, D’Prince, Wizkid and many more. In 2012 following a fallout between record label Executives Don Jazzy and D’banj, Wande Coal, Dr SID and D’Prince signed on to Don Jazzy’s new Record Label Mavin Records with the addition of Tiwa Savage from 323 entertainment acting as the first lady of mavin records. Wande Coal left Mavin Records in 2013 to start up his own record label ‘Black Diamond’. In October 2013, he released a single called “Baby Face”.

Black Diamond Entertainment and CEO Wande Coal has now release of the official single “Ashimepeyin” off the highly anticipated sophomore album. The certified hit was produced by hitmaker Sarz.

Wande Coal believes his new song “Ashimapeyin” which translates to ‘we will call you’ is guaranteed be a huge street anthem. The talented singer and songwriter goes further “Ko ti Kan yi” meaning ‘it’s not your turn yet.’ The message in the song is motivational and reemphasizes the importance of hard work and patience.
