Bebe Cool recently defended his title as Ugandan Legend when he displayed hidden talent on the RnB track titled “Push Up” with Jason Derulo – one of the world’s most successful songwriters and recording artists. The track that also features Dela from Kenya and Rayvanny from Tanzania shows the artists’ ability to not only collaborate but also learn from the unique experience of working with an Urban pop mega-star who has sold over 50 million singles worldwide and racked up 11 platinum singles so far.
Produced by Masterkraft, one of the best producers in Nigeria, the track opens with Jason Derulo who is later joined by Dela and then Rayvanny. Bebe Cool makes an exciting entrance amidst an indoor fireworks display as he adds some dancehall sizzle to the already outstanding collabo, prompting the other artists to unleash their favorite dance moves. Dela restores order to the stage with her soothing voice, bring the mashup to an end.
Commenting about the track and the entire Coke Studio Africa season, producer Masterkraft asserts that Coke Studio Africa is the most important platform for African artists. He says: “Having broken the barrier of ethnicity and culture, Coke Studio Africa is certainly one of the best things that has ever happened to African music. Coke Studio influences the part of music that interests a wider range of African people… If it wasn’t for Coke Studio Africa – as a producer – I am sure I wouldn’t have met some of the top artists I’ve worked with on and after the show.”
Coke Studio Africa is a non-competitive music collaboration show, which seeks to bring together, and celebrate the diversity of African music and talent. It also gives upcoming artistes the opportunity to work with some of the best local and international music and production talent. It brings together artistes from different genres, eras and regions to create a modern and authentic African sound through musical fusion.
