In the spirit of patriotism, Coke Studio Africa has released a new song Kenya Yetu - an ode to Kenya, by local stars in its 2017 edition: Avril, Sauti Sol, Nyashinski and Dela. The track is a certified feel-good patriotic song with powerful lyrics to inspire and appreciate the heroes that fought for Kenya's independence and those who continue to do so.
Tune in to a new episode of Coke Studio Africa every Monday at 10:00 EAT on Maisha Magic East (158).
Kenya Yetu is intended to appreciate the strides Kenya has made since independence, highlighting the goodwill of the Kenyan people, all that makes the country beautiful and encouraging the spirit of brotherhood.
Written by Mr. Vee renowned for penning Mercy Masika’s Mwema, and produced by the acclaimed Cedo, known for producing Nyashinski’s hit record Mungu Pekee, the song is a genuine blend of the Kenyan spirit with a global fusion and a message that will linger for a long time.
Speaking of his Coke Studio debut, Cedo had this to say: “It was an amazing experience to work with Avril, Sauti Sol, Nyashinski and Dela. You don’t get these kind of talented Kenyan artists on one stage or one studio and for one cause.”
Coke Studio Project Manager, Andrew Endovo, says: “The all-Kenyan lineup comprising one of the best songwriters, producers and artists, displays the authenticity of Kenyan talent. Not only is the power of music unifying, it’s an important part of our heritage and we are proud of the musical talent we have in the country!”
