Last night, thousands of fans and well wishers gathered in Ivory Coast’s capital Abidjan to pay tribute to musician DJ Arafat.
The 33 year old Ivorian, whose real name was Ange Didier Huon, died in a motorcycle accident earlier this month. Hundreds of Ivorian artists took part in a stadium concert, with President Alassane Ouattara among its attendees.
His coffin was later brought to the stadium and then carried away to a local cemetery for burial.
The concert was organised after a successful online petition which called on the government to allow the use of Félix Houphouët Boigny stadium, which seats 35,000 people. The government also pledged $250,000 towards the event and said it would pay for Huon’s funeral ceremony.
DMW Boss and Friend to the deceased, Davido was also there to grace the occasion. He thrilled the fans with some of his popular songs
