Hundreds of Ivorian artists and foreign artists took part in a stadium concert, with Ivorian president, Alassane Ouattara among its attendees. The Ivorian government pledged $250,000 towards the event.
DJ Arafat in his lifetime was one of the most popular African musicians in the Francophone world and had been referred to as the “king” of coupé-décalé, an Ivorian form of dance music.
