Nigerian act works with top Kenyan artists
The Chocolate City CEO will be collaborating with Avril, Blinky Bill and Octopizzo on the new season of Coke Studio Africa.
The Chocolate City CEO will be collaborating with singer-songwriter Avril to give his ‘Bad belle’ track and her ‘Nikumuona’ single a fresh new twist. Both songs are to be produced by Cobhams Asuquo. As with the usual style of the show, the talents will perform the mash-up versions of their songs live with a band directed by South AfricanGrammy award-winning music expert Zwai Bala.
“The mash-up format is very powerful, we’re going to unite fans, markets and hearts”, M.I said. He was also in the studio with Blinky Bill of house music group Just a Band.
The MC didn’t just spend his time creating new music, while he was in the Green City in the Sun, Kibera ambassador and rapper Octopizzo took him on a tour of his neighbourhood. This move inspired the ‘The Chairman’ rapper. He said: "As a successful rapper, I don’t only want to work with artists who only show you the top of their plant but I am also interested in those getting back to their roots”.
The new season is currently being filmed in Kenya.
