One of Africa’s most unique music acts Tresor from South Africa will make his debut on Coke Studio Africa this year, paired alongside another first timer, Cameroonian singer Locko. This comes right after the worldwide release (26 May 2017) of his highly awaited sophomore album, The Beautiful Madness. The Coke Studio pairing has already met in Nairobi, Kenya where the show is being recorded, and will be produced by top South African pop music producer, Gemini Major.
Tresor recently brokered a 7-figure multi-year record deal and his debut single “Remedy” has been performing exceptionally well since its release. A number #1 trending topic in South Africa on its release date, the song is currently in the Top 15 most played songs in South Africa. The multi-award winning singer and songwriter who is at the moment spearheading pop in Africa spoke in Nairobi during the show’s recording, “African music has had barriers for a very long time but Coke Studio Africa is a melting point of artists from allover Africa to give the world the best of African music. Its crucial since right now we (African artists) are at the forefront of influencing pop culture.”
