Ivorian superstar DJ Arafat, died Monday following a traffic accident that occurred in the night before after ramming his over speeding motorcycle into a car being driven by a journalist in Abidjan.
The 33-year-old was often credited as being the originator of the coupé-décalé genre of music. His fans who could not believe the authenticity of the news besieged the polyclinic where he was admitted shortly after the accident wailed uncontrollably.
“The death of artist DJ Arafat, his real name Houon Ange Didier, Monday, August 12 at 8 am (local and GMT), as a result of a traffic accident that occurred in the night of Sunday to Monday in Abidjan,“RTI said in tweet.
We have across a video on his IG platfrom where he’s seen bottle feeding her only child. It shows the singer was a responsible father too.
Death is wicked indeed- may he rest in peace.
