Johannesburg – American R&B sensation Trey Songz has been
confirmed as this year’s Coke Studio international superstar! Trey will be
collaborating with a few African artists, including SA’s own, Emtee.
The Grammy nominated artist is set to star in the Coke
Studio finale, scheduled to air on 19 November.
Songz is expected to jet into Nairobi this September
where he will be recording at Coke Studio Nairobi and performing live alongside
artists from eleven participating countries, including South African artist
Emtee. Some of the other African artists scheduled to perform with Songz are
Nyashinski from Kenya, Vanessa Mdee from Tanzania, and Stonebwoy from Ghana.
Speaking about the project, Trey said, “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.”
