Didier Awadi, Makhtar Xuman Fall Guest commentator Senegalese rap icon Didier Awadi, right, lays down verse about the week's news as Makhtar 'Xuman' Fall looks, during a taping of the 'Journal Rappe,' in Dakar, Senegal. In the span of a program just five minutes long, Fall and his co-host Cheikh 'Keyti' Sene tackle, in rhyming verse, everything from the Middle East to local woes like the flooding that disproportionately hits poor suburbs of Senegal's capital. The news and commentary show, rapped in French and Wolof, went viral on YouTube earlier this year and now airs twice a week on Senegalese television
