“Don Jazzy is Like a Father to Me”- Wande Coal Finally Reveals


The Glo ambassador soon plans to join interscope records with D’banj. In a recent interview with Encomiun, Hip-hop star, Wande Coal who was officially confirmed a Glo ambassador, in an unveiling ceremony held at Michael Adenuga Towers, Victoria Island, Lagos on Tuesday, January 28, 2014 spoke about his juicy endorsement and the reason why he left Don Jazzy’s Mavin Record. 

See excerpt from the interview below…
How were you introduced to Glo?
I have been doing shows for Glo for close to four years. So, I have been in a relationship with them before I was signed. The deal must be so juicy for you to come on board? I thank God for where I’m coming from. At the end of the day, it is all about growth.

How much were you paid?
I won’t disclose that, please. But it is huge. It is a two-year contract.
What would you say you have enjoyed so far working with Glo?
Working with one of the biggest brands in Africa is really a privilege. There are a whole lot of advantages. If you go out there, you would see my billboards. At the end of the day, I will feature in some of their commercials on global TV like CNN, among other privileges. That’s good enough. It will make me work harder. It is a testimony and a dream come true. 

But you are not going to be doing collaborations with artistes endorsed by Glo competitors?
That is not true. You can collabo with different artistes irrespective of the brands they represent. As far as you are not out of the Glo umbrella.
Does meeting D’Banj, your former label boss at Mo’Hit at Glo invoke any nostalgia?
It is a family. We are brothers. I’m happy to meet him here. D’Banj is a big brother to me.
What is Wande Coal bringing into Glo?
I’m bringing in a lot through my music. I’m going to be talking about the brand in my songs, even in my forthcoming album. How has it been since you left Mavin Records? I have learnt to do things on my own. It is now a different ball game. I can now diversify.
In your sober moments, do you regret leaving Don Jazzy?
If you want me to be real, Don Jazzy is like a father to me. But like you married and left your mom and dad, life must go on. I’m happy that my brand name, Black Diamond is now a reality. I’m rather grateful to God for the opportunity to actualize my dream.
But are you missing anything at all, like missing some of your folks there?
I’m not missing anything.
What do you want me to miss?
I still love them. That is me. I don’t discriminate. I just love them all.
