Yeezus Walks: Kanye West announces new tour film

Clovis Casali and music critic Mariam Saab have a look at a mysterious project announced by US superstar Kanye West. The hip-hop star says he's to release a film of his 2013 tour "Yeezus", directed by Hype Williams, who has previously worked with Tupac Shakur, Wu-Tang Clan and Beyoncé. For now there is no release date, just a 30-second trailer promising a spectacular and surreal movie.

Also on the show: Lily Allen says she’s been inspired by Kanye West for the title of her new album, "Sheezus". Despite a war of words on Twitter recently, the British singer says she admires his straight talking.

And musicians from all over Africa, including Youssou N’Dour, are performing in a special concert to help the Central African Republic. With months of violence and war, the country's infrastructures have been badly hit and the money collected will help rebuild a major art centre in the capital Bangui. Congolese musician So Kalmery joins us on set to tell us more.
