Coke Studio Africa 2017 promises to be a melting pot of music talents bringing together renowned music producers and top-notch artists drawn from various parts of the continent. This follows the merging of Coke Studio Africa and Coke Studio South Africa into one, bigger, better Coke Studio Africa 2017.

“Music is the heartbeat and the soul of many diverse communities throughout Africa. From Bongo, to Kwaito, to Lingala and other genres across Africa, Coke Studio Africa is helping introduce these different musical styles to new communities for the first time, while maintaining a long tradition of Coca-Cola’s use of music to build its brands,” she continued.

Like the previous editions, Coke Studio aims to inspire and introduce Africa’s music talents to a new and wider audience through interaction, collaboration and cooperation amongst musical artists while also building a strong brand connection with Africa’s young and growing population.  Africa is full of great music talent in communities, cities and countries, and Coke Studio Africa can give these artists wider exposure, while enabling greater interaction, collaboration and cooperation to create inspirational new sounds.

Coke Studio Africa 2017 is expected to air from August in South and Central Africa markets and from September onwards in East and West Africa.

By Our Reporter

Zahara Toto seems to change her men like she changes dresses. The TV star who in the recent past has been involved with a one Don Solo, who reportedly even gifted her with a BMW, seems to have now given her heart away to someone else.

Zahara was recently spotted enjoying quality time with a new man who our snoops have identified as Reuben Robert. The two lovebirds were said to have been on vacation in Mombasa, Kenya.

She appears to have been wooed by Reuben’s money. We have learned that Reuben Robert is a loaded business man. Sources have revealed that Reuben has shares in a local sports betting company and is also the owner of the University of Pain boxing and bodybuilding gym located downtown.

Meanwhile, Don remains a jilted man who has since resorted to threats to scare Reuben away. Solo is said to be sending death threats to Reuben through social media and his friends warning him that he will face it rough if he (Reuben) doesn’t stop hanging out with ‘his woman’.

Andrew Waiswa Kagoda, best known as Waiswa in all Kampala happening places and in the music business has a new artist called Posha Ug. These two have been seen together for about three months. Having not been sure what kind of relationship he had with this light-skinned babe Posha, our snoops hunted him at Casablanca, a place where Radio and weasel used to hang a lot.  

He revealed to us how they have been hatching a plan to introduce Posha to the music industry. And we can vividly say he has done a good job because within a period of 6 months, Posha has released three singles covering versatile styles; Sure Win, Nyumirwa and Mambo. Mambo has been rocking Kampala stations and nightclubs.

Asked whether he can truly resist Posha with all her hotness, he simply said, “I can control myself man, and this is business. At this early stage, I can tell you this girl will make others tremble. We have a very committed team working to see her through’’.

Waiswa has been in the industry since 2006, and has closely worked in the management of Mowzey Radio and Weasel
