No sooner had Omarion left Kenya than it was confirmed that another American R&B superstar would be jetting into the country.
American singer, songwriter, and dancer Jason Joel Desrouleaux, known professionally as Jason Derulo has been confirmed as this year’s Coke Studio Africa guest star.
The singer, who is currently riding high with his latest banger ‘Swalla’ is expected to jet into Nairobi, Kenya this week to participate in the recording of the 5th edition of Coca-Cola’s flagship African music show.
This year Coke Studio has merged Coke Studio Africa and Coke Studio South Africa into one—bigger and better, Coke Studio Africa – 2017.
Two of Africa’s hottest music producers: Masterkraft (Nigeria) and DJ Maphorisa (South Africa) will be tasked with producing all the African artistes and Jason Derulo, after which all the music will be performed and recorded live alongside Coke Studio’s highly talented house band.
Coke Studio Africa – 2017 includes artistes from South Africa, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Ghana, Angola, Zimbabwe, Togo, Cote d’Ivoire, Madagascar, Mauritius, Mozambique, DRC and Cameroon.
The new season is set to premiere in different regions from September this year and will broadcast in more than 30 countries across Africa.
