Yesterday a lot of facebookpages posted about his accident. I thought that he would survive, because it wasn’t the first, but it didn’t happen.

RIP

i must admit i was not a big  fan of his new voice but a death is never something nice
debordo must be devastated him who just wrote a heartfelt "stay strong" message to him,somehow it remembers me of papa wemba's death
 arafat had seen the return of his most famous dancer bb sans os and they will not have had time to work together..

 as if it was written somewhere,the song which made him famous was about a fellow dj dead in a motorbike accident,and unfortunately he also died from same thing
33 years old was still quite a young age

Yeah, the continental hit « Hommage à DJ Jonathan »

I was just listening to his new album yesterday thinking how good it was.

He lived a like a rockstar and people around him were advising him to relax on the alcohol, drugs, women, and his obsession with speed

Yeah, he was doing crazy stunts and driving at crazy speed in Abidjan with child spectators near by. On one occasion when I was in Babi I saw his crew speeding on La Rue Princesse where the clubs are. I'm surprised he didn't get license pulled even though it wouldn't have stopped him

and unfortunately congolese people have already started doing their wonders on whatsapp and co,with the image  of him lying on the floor and already half gone and saying say hello to papa wemba and tell him whatever about  some politics stuff
and an image of kabila on his harley or something like that with the caption why God did not take him

Yes; the song is incredibly ominous now because it quite literally describes in vivid detail what has now happened to Arafat himself

It’s a dance classic, but if you pay attention to the lyrics it’s a sad hommage

i just saw a post from his cousin and fellow coupe decale star serge beynaud who revealed they had started rehearsals for a surprise concert as they used to beef a lot in media and also had programmed a song and just had to add their voices but now its too late

Post by: Tata Nkiadi on August 13, 2019, 11:50
What a pity. Way too young to die. I didn’t know his music as I’m not particularly a fan of Coupe Decale, but any premature loss of life is tragic. Repose en Paix.

Why do Motorbike fanatics like such stunts? There is a group i know here on facebook of bikers almost every month or so you hear one posting thanks for being there for me while i was in hospital (after the accident) or thanks to all of you who showed support during the funeral of so and so (biker) who died as result of a motorbike accident. Such stunts and add to that the alcohol and drug abuse is a sure suicide mission. Very sad.

What was he saying here?

Post by: archos on August 13, 2019, 14:39
he was saying that  he had make sure that if something happened to him he would not need people to put money together to help him and  that if  one day he dies after a car or motorbike accident(i remember he had a motorbike accident once and was laughing at himself that his butt hurts and things like that) straight way then its God will but if he is still alive he is organised enough to go to europe if needed for treatment
i watched several ivorian videos and they say emergency guys came 2 h almost after,while he had cranial fracture and by the time they arrived even if he survived music was over given the level of damage

Post by: SoukousFan on August 13, 2019, 15:02
Looking at that camera video of the impact, I am highly doubtful that this guy would have been able to return to music immediately. The impact looks very fatal. I am not a fan of the coupe decale music but death is death, it is very sad, no matter who is impacted.

I am also very confident that this death was very avoidable, live fast you die young!!! Such a loss!!

Unfortunately Arafat (in life) couldn't be saved. Beating dancers, sleeping with other people's wife and girlfriends and the fatal thing that he used to do,  Poppin a whelie at a high speed. He had very very bad company around him. If they were his real friends they would never let him run in those comditioms amd stop the stunts from the beginning. Except the moto part is typically how 90 % of Congolese leader acts. Anyway despite his flows, it is sad that this young man passed away in such a brutal and painful way. I like to think he is paradise

Very sad sad news.......despite his bad boy reputation, I liked him and his music very much. He contributed a lot to the dance scene more so with the kpangor dance copied by Ferre, Koffi and many others.

RIP Arafat

Not yet,they are still at the level of the "usual" family disagreement over who should organize what,who deserves what in his big wealth and so on,also his fans push so that government gives them national stadium which has not been given yet
