Mokobe

Mokobe Traore is a young French rapper who was born on May 24, 1976 to a mother from Mali and Mauritania and a father from Mali and Senegal. After several successful albums with his group the "Mafia K1 Fry" and the rap trio "113" (over 3 million records sold plus winning two Victoires de la Musique in 2000), Mokobe went solo.

In June 2007 he released his first album called "My Africa", where we find collaboration with great artists of African music such as Youssou N'dour, Salif Keita, Oumou Sangare, Fally Ipupa, Seun Kuti, Sekouba Bambino, Tiken Jah Fakoly, plus Amadou and Mariam. Mokobé is an artist deeply committed to his music but also to issues concerning Africa. Each album sold facilitated buying mosquito nets to fight against malaria in Senegal and Mali.

In January 2009, Mokobe is the first rapper to receive the title of Chevalier de l'Ordre National du Mali (Legion of Honour) by His Excellency Amadou Toumani Toure. He was awarded Best International Artist and Best Hip Hop Ambassador of Mali to the 1st Hip Hop Awards 2009.

The new album by 113 named "Universel" was released in December 2010.[endtext]
