Abdourakhmane Dabo of his stage name Al Fàruq was the first African champion of Slam and poetry. The most talented slammer of his generation. For him, Slam is a moment of sharing between humans, a moment of marriage of hearts “until love repairs us”.
Al Fàruq defined Slam as the stethoscope of those who poetize. He practiced it to humanize men. The one whose slogan was “Democratize happiness!” fell asleep on October 6, 2020.
An interview project had been organized with him, but unfortunately we had no time to carry it out. It was with the greatest sadness that they had learned of his disappearance.
We wanted to pay a big tribute to him through this excerpt in our section “Planète Slam” thanks to the collaboration of the production of the program “Plume d”Or” animated by the journalist columnist Aminata SARR.
Al Fàruq now dances with the angels up in the sky where his eternal soul rests. We hope that this work will please you… your mythical smile on your face that humbles itself in our hearts.
“DEMOCRATIZE HAPPINESS” Al Fàruq
