Nigerian recording artist Wande Coal dropped a brand new song and music video, “Let Them Know” which continues his slew of releases as he prepares to drop his forthcoming album Legend Or No Legend due out May 18, 2023. The song sees the star pontificating about keeping his relationship with a love interest under wraps, and tells her to do the same.
Over Kel P's guitar strumming and hypnotic groove, he sings "Don't let them know that I got plans for you" with much gusto. The accompanying visuals are quite engaging and keep things simple with a focus on Wande Coal's laidback style as he chills in a luxurious location. The use of simple lighting and set pieces that stray from the expected also works and while one might like to see him with a leading lady on set, this video relies mainly on smooth angular cuts and solo scenes with the star while his dancers do their thing separately.
Earlier this year, Wande tapped Olamide for “Kpe Paso”- watch here. The phrase comes from a Yoruba cultural representation for flex, or to celebrate, in a big way and is tradition to be grand at important events.
Wande Coal, born Oluwatobi Wande Ojosipe in Lagos, is one of the most revered, influential, and multifaceted African recording artists of the modern era, with over 200 million global streams to his credit.
