#ThisisAfrica: Sudanese TV (in Dubai)

I came across a concert on Sudanese television station Blue Nile TV while flipping through channels in Dubai (lot’s of great music on there). I know The Sudan has been in the news for other reasons lately, but this looked like a fun party with enthusiastic participation by the crowd.  This singer really seemed to get a warm reception, which included rose throwing.  Does anyone recognize him? Perhaps it’s just because of shared language, which means access to a wider audience, but I find it interesting that while Sudan borders many African countries, the text message ticker on the bottom of the screen includes only Arab countries like Oman, Jordan, Bahrain, The UAE, and Yemen.
