The exit of a legend or hero is always marked by a feeling of void, sadness and most importantly strange happenings. That was the expectation of most of the followers of the music legend DJ Arafat.
Has was one of the most popular African artist in the francophone countries. Like everyone would have predicted, he was given a state of the art farewell by the “Coupé decalé” with an over night concert at his country’s main stadium.
The overnight funeral concert held at Felix Houphouet-Biogny stadium in Abijan began on Friday and ended early today, when Arafat’s remains was displayed for a final farewell to a round of applause, which later turned to tears as the mood changed. The concert had in attendance the Ivorian president, Alassane Quattara, Davido, Sidiki Diabate, Fally Pupa and Serge Beynaud.
Then the unimaginable which has never been witnessed in African continent happened. This bizarre incident was perpetrated by some section of his fans named “les chinoise” translated as “the Chinese” which is predominated by Chinese and Ivorians became a doubting Thomas. And decided to confirm with their own eyes that truly the coupé king is really dead.
They invade his tomb, desecrated it by digging out, removing his coffin and opening it. As if that was not disrespectful enough, they then began to take pictures of it and remove his cloths to confirm his tattoos.
The intervention of the police through sporadically shooting to the air was what dispatch the group as seen in the video below.
