Lagos Nigeria; 2 September 2014: Season two of the Coca-Cola youth-centric music platform, Coke Studio, is set to storm Lagos State Polytechnic (LASPOTECH), Ikorodu campus on Friday, September 5th with rave of the moment artistes Oritsefemi, Orezi and Mavin’s Di’ja supported by comedians and other side attractions.

According to Brand Manager, Colas, Coca-Cola Nigeria, Olufemi Ashipa, the Coke Studio concert is a platform to excite and refresh campus communities across Nigeria with live performance on stage by established music stars. The concert, he said, will also provide a coveted opportunity for upcoming and aspiring local artistes to perform alongside the stars on each campus the music platform visits.

“At Coca-Cola, we are constantly listening to our consumers, and we are focused on satisfying their needs through our products and the unique brand experience we offer.  This is why we are raising the game with Coke studio Season 2, bringing on board some new artistes among the very best from across Africa and creating refreshing new sounds through a fusion of genres, styles, and songs.” Ashipa said

Berthed in 2013 in Africa, the Coke Studio is a huge success in other parts of the world particularly the Middle East and Asia. In its second season this year, Coke Studio Africa promises to be bigger, bolder, and better with a series of concerts across several higher institutions in Nigeria to give music fans a memorable date with Coca-Cola.

Interested members of the campus communities who want to showcase their music talent can do so during the concert. Simply buy a PET bottle of Coca-Cola, like Coca-Cola on Facebook and join teeming Coca-Cola fans to perform on stage at any of the concerts for a chance  of a live collabo with any of the stars on parade.
