Goldie Harvey: death of a Nigerian hip-hop icon
We focus on the death of Goldie Harvey, a Nigerian hip-hop icon, shortly after her return from the United States where she took part in the Grammy awards ceremony. Revealed to the public by the TV reality show Big Brother Africa, she was only 31 years old, and so far the circumstances are not yet clear.
Our music critic Amobe Mevegue also tell us about the young emerging Senegalese artist Lek Sen, and the American hip-hop star Kanye West's European tour.
