The rhythmic track will guarantee to make an impression with the extremely catchy chorus. This is the follow-up to his collaboration with Olamide titled “Kpe Paso”.

Watch the official music video to “Let Them Know” by Wande Coal here:
Written by Joseph Charles, Olutowa Ojosipe, Oluwatobi Ojosipe, and Udoma Amba, whilst it was produced by Kel P, “Let Them Know” is a rhythmic Afrobeats track that really showcases the genre in a more mainstream international move, guaranteed to go viral and become a sleeper hit. Wande Coal brings it vocally, adding passion and desire into his voice as he delves into how he has plans for his love interest and it’s clear that he is crazy about this woman. Impressive in every way, it’s not a surprise that Wande Coal is a legend and totally continues to be on top form, especially since the last rap freestyle verse truly showcases his melodic energy that is completely iconic; add that to this dance-vibe energy that the “Let Them Know” chorus brings, and he is destined for worldwide chart success.
The accompanying music video, which has been shot and chopped by TG Omori, showcases a stunning house that has a lit-up balcony where beautiful women are dancing away to this track. The visuals explore a variety of rooms in the place, with Wande Coal performing the track in many of the rooms, showcasing his legend-esque energy and adding the fired-up emotion visually which only intensifies the passion of the track. The freestyle dancing matches the rhythmic backing track making it difficult to not want to dance to the track too. We also feel the house is a reference to the place that Wande Coal mentions in the opening lyric.
