Ivorian global reggae icon Alpha Blondy is set to take center stage at the closing ceremony of the TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations Côte d’Ivoire 2023. Born as Seydou Kone, the legendary ‘Cocody Rock’ artist will grace the event at the Alassane Ouattara Stadium in Ebimpe on Sunday.
Joining Alpha Blondy on the performance lineup are notable artists Serge, Roseline, Didi B, Tam Sir, and Team Paiya, who will together entertain the audience with the popular song ‘Coup de Marteau’, which has become emblematic of the tournament.
The closing ceremony is poised to be a celebration of Ivorian culture and unity, with a unique narrative approach incorporating light effects, pyrotechnics, visual projections, and musical performances.
The event will also feature a special orchestra comprising 123 children and 14 trainers, performing the official song ‘Akwaba’ by Magic System, Yemi Alade, and Mohamed Ramadan.
In the grand finale of the tournament, host country Cote d’Ivoire will face Nigeria in a clash for the title. The Ivorian national team, known as Les Elephants, aims for their third championship, while Nigeria’s Super Eagles seek their fourth victory in the competition.
