DJ Arafat

Yesterday, thousands of fans and well-wishers assembled in Ivory Coast’s city Abidjan to pay tribute to musician DJ Arafat.  

The 33-year-old Ivorian, who was known in private life as Ange Didier Huon, died in a motorcycle accident earlier this month.

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.
