American R&B singer Trey Songz will be within the Kenyan borders later this month.
The R&B heartthrob has been confirmed as this year’s Coke Studio Africa international superstar!
Coke Studio Africa is a non-competitive music show that brings together diverse African music talent for world-class showcases while giving upcoming artists the opportunity to work with some of the best local and international music and production talent.
The Grammy-award winner will be recording at Coke Studio Nairobi and performing live alongside artists from eleven participating countries, including Nyashinski (Kenya), Vanessa Mdee (Tanzania), Stonebwoy (Ghana), Neyma (Mozambique), Yemi Alade (Nigeria) and Emtee(South Africa).
Ahead of his jetting in, Trey says: “I have always been committed to spending time on the continent of Africa yearly. My fans show me so much love when I’m there. I can’t wait to visit Kenya and partner with the Coca-Cola company on this initiative. I am fortunate to be working with some of Africa’s biggest stars. I look forward to learning from them, making a lot of new friends as I discover what they have to offer.”
South Africa’s top record producer Maphorisa has been tasked to produce Trey Songz and the African stars. He says, “”I have had the opportunity to work with many great artists from all over the world and am very excited to be collaborating with such a talented artist. I believe that we will be making something truly special together and am happy that we are able to share our amazing African sounds with the world in this way.”
Quite something to look forward to!!
