Wande Coal’s new single “Let Them Know” is a touching love song about the singer’s desire for his romantic life to remain out of the spotlight. Kel P’s production skill shines through in the song’s seamless fusion of driving percussion, smooth guitar riffs, and memorable melodies.
The lyrics, as is typical of Wande Coal’s music, are poetic and sincere, and they will likely speak to anyone who has ever felt the highs and lows of a romantic relationship. In the chorus, he asks the subject of his affection to keep their plans to themselves since he has something special in mind for her. He assures her that he will win her love and pursue happiness and prosperity on his own terms.
The song’s fusion of Nigerian pidgin and English gives it a unique flavor and makes it accessible to a wider audience. The verses have lots of brilliant wordplays, including “Ma je e bi indomie noodles.” Put me with some Agege bread instead of those Indomie noodles. Wande Coal’s distinctive and alluring singing style is on full display here, as he delivers every line with conviction and emotion.
In the third verse, he really shows off his skills as a poet by fusing pidgin English with Yoruba. The Yoruba adage “Dodo odindin, o dodo odindi” translates to “One person’s food is another person’s poison,” and it’s a wise saying that applies to many situations.
“Let Them Know” is a well-produced and well-written song demonstrating Wande Coal’s range and originality as a musician. This song is a great taste of what’s to come on his new album, “Legend or No Legend,” and fans will eagerly await its release.
The song is an excellent addition to any playlist because of its relatable and uplifting message of following one’s aspirations and living one’s life on one’s terms while keeping personal life private. This song is a must-listen for any fan of Afrobeats or pop music, and Wande Coal has done an excellent job with it.
