American RnB superstar Trey Songz arrived Kenya this week to feature in the fourth season of Coke studio Africa.
He took to twitter to announce his arrival into the country.
Good morning from Nairobi! Didn't sleep last night, may take a few days to adjust but I feel amazing. Looking forward to today!

Trey started an online frenzy after photos of him riding in a matatu surfaced online. He was rocking his face cap backwards and wearing sun glasses as he stuck his head out the window enjoying the scenery.
The Virginia born vocalist chose to ride in the popular Rongai catalyst matatu which features an Alicia Keys mural.
The mini buses often decorated with art featuring famous people and sayings are peculiar to east Africa. The loud music in the buses have made it an attraction since such buses cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
In 2009, Wyclef Jean who was hosting the MTV Africa Music Awards drove into the ceremony in the famed mini bus.
The Coke Studio Africa show brings together artists from different parts of the world, backgrounds, genres and sound to create a modern authentic sound through what it calls music Mash Up.
The music Mash Up brings together and showcases the diversity of African musical.
Trey Songz is expected to work with a number of African artists for the Mash Up. Nyashinski form Kenya, Yemi Alade from Nigeria, Vanessa Mdee from Tanzania, Rema from Uganda and Neyma from Mozambique.
Other acts shortlisted include Serge Beynaud (French West Africa), Lij Michael (Ethiopia), Stonebwoy (Ghana), and Emtee (South Africa).
