This year Coca-Cola has merged Coke Studio Africa and Coke Studio South Africa into one – a bigger and better – Coke Studio Africa – 2017. The show promises an even richer and authentic blend of African sound with renowned music producers and top-notch artists from more countries than previous seasons joining the set.
Coke Studio Africa’s quest to inspire fresh new sounds from the Continent gives these artists wider exposure, while enabling greater interaction, collaboration and cooperation that speaks to a wider audience of music enthusiasts across genres, styles and eras. All the music was performed and recorded live alongside Coke Studio’s highly talented house band.
The show began airing last week and will be broadcast on QTV every Friday at 18:00hrs and repeated on Monday at 19:30hrs and Wednesday at 13:00hrs. It will be aired in over 30 countries across Africa, including DStv’s Zambezi Magic, which covers the SADC region. All 11 episodes will be aired on QTV in Zambia, Times TV in Malawi, on eBotswana in Botswana while in Nambia and Zimbabwe it will air on One Africa TV and ZTV, respectively.
