Abidjan, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 12th Aug, 2019 ) :DJ Arafat, an Ivorian singer with a huge following in francophone Africa, has died after a road accident in Abidjan, the state broadcaster RTI said on Monday.
Born in Abidjan in 1986, DJ Arafat -- real name Ange Didier Huon -- was avidly followed in French-speaking western and central African countries.
He issued 11 albums, mainly of "coupe-decale" -- a dance music form combining choppy rhythms with hip-hop-style vocals.
