Kedjevara celebrates its 29th birthday today. The number of online tributes testifies to the incredible popularity he enjoys in Ivory Coast and the rest of Africa.
A man with many hats, the famous Ivorian singer-disc jockey-producer has always known how to preserve his secret garden. At 29, Kedjevara (Le meteorman, Nonguon-Nonguon, The One, …) opens up and reveals an extraordinary personality.
From his real name Yao Parfait, Dj Kedjevara is the son of Antoinette Allany, artist-singer. He considers his date of birth as a true symbol: April 18. His artist name is first inspired by the Argentine revolutionary Che Guevara and is also a diminutive of “Kédjénou de varan” which was attributed to him by those around him to best reflect his personality and his strength of character.
What can he still have to accomplish today? We have the pleasant feeling that the next twelve months will be full of surprises. After all Kedjevara is only 29 years old.
Happy birthday Kedjevara!
