According to messages and pictures circulating on social media, the singer with a huge following in francophone Africa, had been driving a motorbike and smashed into a car. Critically injured, he was taken to an Abidjan hospital, where he was reported dead.

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.

Ivorian Culture Minister Maurice Kouakou Bandaman expressed his condolences and said a tribute would be organised to honour the musician.

Below is his song together with Nigerian musician, J.Martins;
