Wande Coal – Iskaba

A former member of Don Jazzy’s Mavin records, Wande Coal, has carved a niche for himself in the industry with his silky voice. Making a bang in the industry with his 2008 hit song Ololufe, Wande hasn’t looked back. Since then, he has released top charting tunes including, Iskaba.
