Rapper Madtraxx & Coke Africa partner up to produce theme song for the Kenyan Olympic team


Rapper Madtraxx and beverage company Coke Africa are joining forces to produce the first ever theme song in support of the Kenyan athletes competing in the 2012 London Olympics.

According to a statement from Coke Africa, the song is aimed at celebrating our Kenyan athletes as well as getting Kenyan fans into the Olympic spirit.“This is the first time that something like this is being done and we are very proud and excited to be spearheading such an initiative. We hope that this anthem will bring Kenyans together in the spirit of the Olympics as well as celebrate the talent we have,” said Catherine Mudachi, Senior Marketing Manager for Coca-Cola Kenya.

Madtraxx will be working with the legendary DJ Pinye on the track and will be looking for two other artists to feature on the track. Open house auditions will be held on June 2nd 10am – 6pm at KICC in , Darajani Hotel in Mombasa and Sunset Hotel in Kisumu.
DJ Delf and music producer Susumila will be the judges in Mombasa, DJ Edog and Thomas Milongo of Chagua Records in Kisumu, and DJ Pinye and Madtraxx in Nairobi. “I know from experience that it’s an artists dream to get that big break and I am hoping that all the budding and aspiring artistes will jump at this great opportunity” Madtraxx added.
The judges on ground will select those artists that will move on to the next round after which Madtraxx and Pinye will shortlist the top four finalists from each region. The 12 finalists will then go through a public voting process where two winners will be chosen.

Spread love it's the Kenyan way!
