MORY KANTE DIES

Guinean music icon, Mory Kante, has died at the age of 70. 
His son, Balla Kante confirmed that the 'Yeke Yeke' hitmaker died in hospital on Friday in the Guinea capital, Conakry.

He told the AFP news agency his father died from health problems that had been left untreated due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
He said: "He suffered from chronic illnesses and often travelled to France for treatment but that was no longer possible with the coronavirus.
"We saw his condition deteriorate rapidly, but I was still surprised because he'd been through much worse times before."
Kante's song, Yeke Yeke became the first African record to sell more than one million copies and was given a special remix for the UK, named the Afro Acid Mix, and it peaked at number. 25.
