The Dreams singer is the third Namibian artist to be featured on the platform following Freeda and Ann Singer. Coke Studio Africa is known for giving a chance to fast rising, up-and-coming artists to feature on the show on the big break segment where they get to collaborate with industry greats.
The rapper has proven herself this year with her consistency by releasing singles that were accompanied by great visuals which makes her worthy of the opportunity to represent the Namibian hip-hop industry.
The thrilled rapper thanked her fans for showing her love and support which made her work get noticed across Africa.
“We are here, a dream made possible by you all,” said the rapper.
Coke Studio Africa is Coca-Cola's flagship African music show. It is a non-competitive music show that brings together diverse African music talent for world-class showcases, while giving upcoming artists the opportunity to work with some of the best local and international music and production talent. It brings together artists from different genres, eras and regions to create a modern and authentic African sound through music fusion.
The production now includes artists from South Africa, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Nigeria, Ghana, Mozambique, DRC, Ethiopia and Cameroon.
This year, artists including Mr Eazi from Nigeria and South African Boity Thulo, are part of the project and Lioness will be working closely with them.
Well-known tracks like I Said by Runtown featuring Nasty C were produced in Coke Studio.
Namibian presenter and singer Paul Da Prince also tagged along for a learning experience from the production process. Both artists look forward to networking and gaining knowledge from experts in different fields at the Coke Studio Kenya offices.
