Top acts declare for Coke Studio concert
This Friday, the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Akoka, will come alive with continental show, Coke Studio, a Coca-Cola’s youth-centric music platform.
Organisers say the event will feature electrifying performances from top acts such as Olamide and Iyanya, who would headline the event alongside trending vocalist Tekno, Emma Nyra and dancehall artiste Patoranking.
The event is the fourth in a series of several others meant to create fun and excitement around Nigerian campuses.
According to Brand Manager, Colas, Coca-Cola Nigeria, Olufemi Ashipa, the Coke Studio concert will continue to excite campus communities across Nigeria with live music from established music stars. The stars are expected to perform alongside upcoming and aspiring local artistes at each campus where the music platform visits.
“The huge turnout by fans and the rave reviews for the Coke Studio outings at the Lagos State Polytechnic (LASPOTECH), the University of Benin and the Abia State University are indicative of the high level of consumer engagement which Coke Studio enjoys across the country,” Ashipa said.
According to him, Coca-Cola would continue to connect the very best artistes from across Africa to create new sounds through a fusion of genres, styles, and songs.
The Coke Studio initiative which began last year, touring different African countries, has become a huge success in other parts of the world, including the Middle East and Asia.
This year, the event seems to have grown bigger, with the inclusion of higher institutions in Nigeria.
Organisers say talented students, who would like a chance to perform on stage with the stars on parade, can do so during the concert by buying a bottle of Coke, and liking Coca-Cola on Facebook.
