Yesterday, news broke of the death of the popular music artiste, DJ Arafat.
Dj Arafat is a well known Ivoirien artiste whose music has crossed borders, making him very popular in the Francophone community.
He is mostly known as being the pioneers of the Coupé-Decalé genre which is a fun danceable genre made up of great upbeat beats consisting mostly of drums.
Most of us have seen tributes from all the big artistes flowing in but some of us aren’t sure who he is.
One of the best ways to get familiar with an artiste is by listening to what made him great…his music.
Some of these songs, you have probably heard before and some too may be new but they are pretty good!
