#AfricaFridays: Focus on the DRC

#AfricaFriday

The curse of the premature Nobel Peace prize - how the worlds darling - The 2019 Nobel prize winner PM Abiy Ahmed - is now unleashing his army on a Northern region of Tigray. What does this mean for Ethiopia and for Africa’s second most populous region and home of the African Union? What’s behind the military fight back and its people? Crystal’s song selection: Mulatu Astatke, who is also known as the “Father of Ethiopian Jazz”. We’ll play his song, "Yegelle Tezeta" See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

#Africa Fridays: Ivory Coast

Ivory Coast on tenterhooks - Alassane Quattara declares victory - Opposition calls in army to block Quattara - Why Cote d’Ivoire’s politics matter, and the French’s unwavering support for Quattara - Why we should be worried.... Crystal’s song choice: “Gbobolor” by D.J Arafat Context to music genre: 1999 marked Ivory Coast's first military coup as well as the birth of the genre Coupé-Décalé. The genre was pushed forward by DJs in France and on the continent, namely Douk Saga, DJ Arafat and DJ Debordeau Coupé-Décalé's rise helped calm tensions and unite the politically-divided country See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
