Wande Coal is known to be both a musician and a mentor to some artistes in the music industry. His life story, rising from the slums of Mushin to becoming one of the most celebrated entertainers in Nigeria has inspired the likes of Wizkid and Davido.
In a recent chat, the Black Diamond of Africa, Wande Coal, spoke about the lingering beef between his mentees, Wizkid and Davido. He said that although he is a mentor to both parties, he made it clear that he is closer to Wizkid.
Wande told Saturday Beats:
“I have influenced the music of both Wizkid and Davido but the person with whom I went through a lot with and greatly influenced is Wizkid. I don’t think anybody should blame Wizkid for whatever action he takes. I know Wizkid very well and I know that he learns from everything. He is a great kid and I love him a lot. He is my brother and that is why he calls my name in his songs. We bonded.
With David, I feel he is a good artiste. In the game called music, there would always be friction but it does not mean that they are not cool with each other. People need to know that music is competitive,” he said.
