With a lot of excitement, I have since the premiere of this year Coke Studio Africa in October watched every episode of the 45 minutes TV show and my love for it keeps growing stronger.
Aside being an influencer and looking out for new episodes of the the Coke Studio Africa each week, my anticipation grows higher when the weekend draws nigh.
This excitement is not only borne out of high expectations of the delivery of great musical pieces from different artists from different parts of the continent but the respect and appreciation for each others’ works and the unity their meetings fosters.
Imagine housing a number of renowned music producers and top-notch artists drawn from various parts of the continent under one roof. Throwing away egos and with a passion to work together, Coke Studio Africa has truly shown a lot could be achieved with music.
For all the past episodes, various artists who have been paired have spoken highly of their colleagues and their music, recorded and performed covers to their songs, an amazing experience one dares not miss.
Ghanaian highlife singer Bisa K.Dei’s could not hide sharing his experience from Coke Studio Africa as he opened up during an interview with BTM Afrika, the Brother Brother hit stated he would love to represent Ghana again.
“It was a great experience. I think every musician should go to Coke Studio trust me because you get to connect with other artists. You get to meet new people, the cultural exchange and all that. I think it’s amazing. I had fun, I really had fun. I had the chance to meet Eddy Kenzo…”, he said.
I’m pretty sure a lot of artists beyond Coke Studio Africa will start hitting the recording studios exchanging cultures on great musical pieces that will continue to make Africa great.
