Black Diamond Entertainment boss and lead act, Wande Coal on Thursday spoke about his journey to success during a press session in Lagos, saying God and not former label executive/producer, Don Jazzy ‘made’ him.
WC, as he often calls himself, came into mainstream music when he joined the now defunct Mo’Hits label, under which he released his debut album, From Mushin To Mo’Hits.
When a disagreement between label executives, Don Jazzy and D’Banj led to the end of the label, Wande Coal joined Mavin Records, alongside Dr. Sid, Tiwa Savage and D’Prince, under the leadership of Don Jazzy.
However, Wande Coal quit the label in 2013.

In a message ahead of the album release, Wande Coal said: “Finally, Black Diamond presents “WANTED”, My sophomore album. This is for the die hard fans, the critics, haters, the media houses and more importantly, those who never stopped believing. This is a reminder of who I was and who I have evolved into. This is where I want to be; WANTED”
The album #WCWanted will be out on the 26th of October 2015.
