Rapper Khaligraph Jones and singer Nikita Kering have released their collision dubbed “Ex”, their first joint project under Coke Studio.
This comes shortly after the two were introduced as Coke Studio artists during a colorful event held in Nairobi. The song, a remix of the hit song “Ex”, previously done by Nikita, is a beautiful fusion of Khaligraph’s rap and Nikita’s angelic vocals, providing a new and unique musical experience to fans of the duo.
“Through this collision, we have witnessed a convergence of stories, styles, and the very soul of Kenyan music. It’s a reminder that our music is diverse, powerful, and unites us all, regardless of our backgrounds,” said Miriam Limo, the brand’s head of marketing in Kenya
This year marks the second season in which Coke Studio has adopted a global approach, featuring a different format. Under this format, there are no staged live performances, no electronic spins on nostalgic hits, and no weekly episodes presenting a variety of songs.
Instead, Coke Studio has taken an ‘always-on’ approach with the introduction of a web-based platform. This platform provides exclusive access to behind-the-scenes content and new music releases from our partner artists, showcasing a diverse mix of global, regional, and local talent.
“We continue to work with the music industry more as partners to create elevated, music-driven content, storytelling and experiences that reflect how fans are consuming content and engaging with the music and artistes they love,” said Caleb Ajidahun, Franchise Director of the company.
