Wande Coal Announces Plan To Groom ‘New Cats’ In Music Industry
Wande Coal, the Afrofusion singer, says he is now focused on developing a new generation of artistes in Nigeria.
During a Q&A session at a recent event, the 37-year-old said he has “new cats” who look up to him.
In contemporary music, a new cat is used to describe an emerging artiste.
The singer added that it would only be good for him to impact the lives of the budding singers too.
“So, what’s most important for me is also to create new talents. It’s not about me now. You know, I have been able to evolve over the years,” he said.
Now, I want to help new talents. Obviously, the systems have changed. I have new cats, new artistes that look up to me. It would only be good for me to impact their lives too and also in the Nigerian music industry.
“Obviously our music is global now. You know, it is been global since 2011. That is when we started going to America to kill it. And now we’ve been spanning the new generation now who is doing it.
“Moving forward, I just wanna impart on the new lives for new generations.”
Wande Coal started to gain fame when he signed with Mo’Hits Records, a now-defunct music label, in 2006.
He has since become a household name in the Nigerian entertainment industry.
The singer has also collaborated with an avalanche of music stars and won multiple prestigious awards for his craft.
