The body of Papa Wemba, one of Africa’s best known singers, has arrived back in the Democratic Republic of Congo after his death on Sunday in Ivory Coast.
Hundreds of people were waiting outside Kinshasa’s airport for the body’s arrival.
An all-night concert has been held in his honour in Abidjan, the city where he collapsed and died on stage.
He is due to be buried on Tuesday after lying in state in a stadium in DR Congo’s capital, Kinshasa, on Monday.
Papa Wemba, who died aged 66, was considered one of Africa’s most influential musicians of his generation.
He pioneered modern Congolese soukous music, which spread through the continent.
