    The influential Congolese musician Papa Wemba has died aged 66 after collapsing during a concert.

    Footage from the show in Ivory Coast showed him slumped on stage. His dancers, unaware of what was happening, continued to perform before rushing to his aid.

    In a career spanning almost half a century, Wemba became known as the "the king of Congolese rumba".
