Last year Falz was paired with Tanzanian rapper Joh Makini and the two produced dope covers of each other’s songs and an original track “You Dey Hot”.
While speaking exclusively at the show’s Behind the Music Studios in Nairobi during the show’s recording, Falz said: “It feels very good to work with Bebe Cool. He is a very cool and chill guy. So far, we have a good working relationship and we are getting along well. I am looking forward to learning more from him about his culture and language– that’s what is most exciting about the Coke Studio experience.” On top of the music collaborations, the two will also participate on Coke Studio’s Food Culture Exchange segment.
Falz and Bebe Cool will be produced by top Nigerian music producer GospelOnDeBeatz. On his collaboration with Bebe Cool, Falz revealed: “Bebe Cool is a huge dancehall artiste and I am a hip hop artiste so that fusion is going to be electric! Expect a lot of fire!” Both Bebe Cool and Falz will also feature in a special Coke Studio dubbed ‘The Global Fusion Edition’ alongside Coke Studio Africa’s international guest star – the American Pop/R&B star Jason Derulo and 8 other talented African stars.

Hot and prolific Nigerian rapper, comedian and comic act Falz the bad guy is out with the video to his latest banger “Jeje”.
The barrister turned rapper calls his latest effort “Jeje” and it is a follow up to his last two singles “Baby Boy” and “Well Done Sir” which were produced by Sess – the problem kid.
