Mory Kante Laid To Rest In Homeland Guinea

 

Guinea’s globally-acclaimed singer, Mory Kante, has been laid to rest in his home country.

Hundreds of people mourned Kante. He helped bring African music to world audiences with hits like Yéké Yéké.

He died last week at the age of 70 after battling “chronic illnesses.”

There was public viewing of his casket in Conakry, Guinea’s capital, as videos sighted by African Entertainment on social media show.

A pre-burial ceremony in the grounds of a local hospital was attended by ministers, diplomats and fellow musicians, according to reports.

African Entertainment understands that his mortal remains were laid to rest at a cemetery in Conakry following Islamic religious rites.

African Entertainment has seen photos from the ceremony on social media
