Wycliffe Tugume a.k.a Ykee Benda may represent Uganda in the next season five of Coke Studio according to reports gathered by our team.
Ykee rose to prominence with his breakthrough track Farmer that he remixed with Sheeba Karungi which gave him a lot of popularity and now he is to feature in the Coke Studio season 5 which will be in Nairobi, Kenya.
Coke Studio is a continental non-competitive music experience that focuses on bringing together different musicians to fuse cultures and music. Last year, Lydia Jazmine, Jose Chameleone, Rema Namakula and Eddie Kenzo represented in the fourth edition.

Ykee Benda expressed his excitement for this opportunity by posting on one of his social media accounts stating, “Don’t stop dreaming if you are a young person out there. I tell you two years ago, I watched all these African big stars do their thing on this stage. I told myself one day that would be me and that day is here,”
He went ahead and advised the young musicians to never doubt themselves and to always believe until ‘Belief’ becomes their middle name.
Congratulations to our boy Benda and may he perform his best at the fifth edition of Coke Studio this year.
