Nigerian music icon, Wande Coal has released the music video for his single “Again” the remix featuring Nigerian-American artist Wale. This track is off his recently released EP, Realms, which is his first project in five years. Directed by Adasa Cookey, the short-film for the song explores love, friendship and betrayal.

I really enjoyed performing there years back and can’t wait to reconnect with my Kenyan fans.” He is also ecstatic about jumping into the studio with Kenyan artists. “I’m game. I’d love to work with Sauti Sol, Khaligraph Jones, Chris Kaiga and Femi One sometime.”
The 7-track EP has an impeccable set of tracks benefitting from his wide-ranging talents as a vocalist and songwriter.

With its emotive guitar plucks and tender, romantic lyrics, “Again” (produced by Melvitto and Screwface) is already on its way to becoming an Afro Pop classic, having reached over 30 million streams and topping key African music charts.
