Coca-Cola treated guests, artists and partners to an evening of African music, free flowing drinks and trivia as they officially launched the 2019 Coke Studio Africa season in Uganda.

The event was attended by representatives from Coca-Cola Uganda led by Maggie Kigozi, the Coca-Cola Regional Marketing Manager and Conrad Van Niekerk, the Coca-Cola Bottling Managing Director, broadcasting partners, influencers and members of the media fraternity.

Also in attendance were Coke Studio Uganda representatives: Alvin Kizz, Sheebah, Weasel, King Saha, Fik Fameica and producer Daddy Andre, accompanied by Coke Studio Alumni Jose Chameleone and Ykee Benda.

The night kicked off with a special tribute session to the late Moses Nakibogo aka Radio during which King Saha and Radio’s former partner Weasel performed their Coke Studio mashup dedicated to all the fallen soldiers.

Sheebah, Alvin Kizz and Ykee Benda were then given an opportunity to talk about their experiences at the studio and entertain the guests with some of their newest tracks, including their Coke Studio collabos.

Speaking on behalf of the night’s host, Mrs. Maggie Kigozi thanked all the guests for turning up to support Ugandan and African music. “As you all know, fusing the diverse musical influences in Africa while providing a platform for renowned as well as upcoming and less mainstream artists to collaborate musically is the backbone of Coke Studio. This year, our artists have had the opportunity to share experiences and integrate their musical journeys with over 25 of Africa’s talented artists and producers,” she noted, adding this season will celebrate the local African artists that have made a remarkable impact on the music industry and therefore will not have an international star.

On his end, Conrad Van Niekerk applauded the Ugandan representatives for reaching this far in their musical careers. He noted that Coke Studio is designed to bring local talent together to showcase on the international music scene. He reiterated CCBA Uganda`s commitment to continuously offer the market the most affordable and innovative products.

Along with Coke Studio 2019, Coca-Cola will be launching an Under The Crown campaign that will reward consumers who have purchased a Coke zero, Fanta Orange, Fanta Fruit blast, Sprite, Novida or Stoney with exciting prizes. Additionally, Coca-Cola has partnered with Mr Tastys, KFC, Crazy Chicken and Javas to provide a Coke Studio discounted meal.

Coke Studio will be airing on NTV, NBS, Sanyuka and Spark TV on Fridays at 8pm.

Jose Chameleone cleans up Twitter, follows only two Ugandan artistes, your guess is as good as ours.

After being unfollowed by the President or rather his administrator, Jose Chameleone has not taken Twitter lightly. The singer has done some cleaning up and has been left with only 108 accounts to follow and only two of those are Ugandan artistes.

It is not rocket science that Chameleone only decides to follow his two brothers Pallaso and Radio&Weasel, had it been any others maybe we would be wondering the criteria he used.

Chameleone is one of the most followed Ugandan artistes on Twitter and not following you may not go so well with you as an artiste.

Rwandans ask Salvado To Apologize for Genocide Joke

Published

on

By Staff Writer

Over the week, a video of Salvado’s standup performance went viral. It was one of his most creative jokes to-date about different airlines and their themes.

On one of the jokes about Rwanda Air, genocide was mentioned as one of the topics air hostesses can’t miss.

Now Rwandans have picked that up and taken offence. They have given Salvado an ultimatum to apologize. But he is not about to allow.

On his Twitter profile, he says those offended are missing the humour. The Rwandans insist the 1994 Genocide against the tutsi is not something to joke about.

Talent Africa group under it’s events and promotion wing will come active and handy in the ASFA 2019.
