The first episode of Coke Studio Africa will feature the likes of South Africa’s hip-hop artist Nasty C, and Nigeria’s Runtown will be performing some covers and will also be creating a new, original track.
Kenya’s Khaligraph Jones and Rwanda’s Bruce Melody will also be doing a performance, as well as Tanzania’s Alikiba, Nigeria’s Patoranking, and Ozane from Togo.
"This hit African music show is sure to bring together the continent’s numerous colourful and diverse cultures in a way that only music can. Coca-Cola South Africa is thrilled to be in its third year of providing African artists with a platform to discover and create, with the support of our longstanding relationship with e.tv. This season promises to introduce some new music styles to new audiences, for the very first time, bringing people together in a uniquely Coca-Cola way," says Sharon Keith, marketing director for Coca-Cola southern and east Africa.
Like the previous editions, Coke Studio aims to inspire and introduce Africa’s musical talents to a wider audience through interaction, collaboration, and cooperation among artists and producers, while also building a connection with Africa’s young and growing population.
"Africa is full of great musical talent across a wide range of communities, cities, and countries, and Coke Studio Africa 2017 aims give these artists wider exposure while enabling them to create inspirational new sounds," concludes Keith.
