Elemotho, a singer-songwriter from the Kalahari desert, receives a cash award of 10,000 euros, a promotion package, a concert in Paris and a tour in Africa, all sponsored by the Institut Français.

The Africa tour will begin in early 2013 and fans in France can catch him in the spring.

Angélique Kidjo, the international star from Benin, is president of the jury. She says they were unanimous in choosing Elemotho out of the 10 finalists.
