Coke Studio Africa II: Part 1
In our last post, we talked about our Coke Studio Africa experience with the legendary Wyclef Jean. We cannot, however, mention the project without saluting the amazing 26 African artists and numerous house band members who came together to make memorable music and unite the continent through song.
Over the next few posts, we’ll let you in on what went down during the first 13 weeks.
Sit back and enjoy 🙂
