Singer, Konga claims he brought Wande Coal to stardom
By Patricia Uyeh,
Nigerian rapper, Konga, who after a major hit single has been off the music radar, claimed to have introduced singer Wande Coal to D’banj and Don Jazzy.
According to the rapper, he was instrumental the success of Wande Coal in the industry.
In a brief chat on the program, ‘The Dark Room’, Konga recounted the very day he held Wande Coal by the hand and took him to Don Jazzy.
“I remember I was performing somewhere when Wande Coal stepped up to me and was like ‘ahh baba your boy dey here, baba wetin dey for your boy na’ – and I was like okay, follow me – I took him to Don Jazzy and I said D’banj just listen to this boy, and Wande sang ‘Ololufe’
“After one or two verses Don Jazzy was like take my number and call me the next morning, and I was like Don Jazzy na so? And he said no worry we go see”
Konga, however, lamented that neither Wande Coal nor D’Banj/ Don Jazzy showed appreciation to him after they became popular. He said:
“ahh Konga thank you oo, we don make so much millions, we appreciate. They don’t even pick my call, not like I’m asking for my own share or anything like that.”
