INFORMATION ABOUT BURKINA FASO
"Burkina Faso ... is a landlocked country in West Africa. It covers an area of around 274,200 square kilometres (105,900 sq mi) and is surrounded by six countries: Mali to the north; Niger to the east; Benin to the southeast; Togo and Ghana to the south; and Ivory Coast to the southwest. Its capital is Ouagadougou. In 2014 its population was estimated at just over 17.3 million. Burkina Faso is a francophone country, with French as an official language of government and business. Formerly called the Republic of Upper Volta (1958–1984), the country was renamed "Burkina Faso" on 4 August 1984 by then-President Thomas Sankara. Its citizens are known as Burkinabé (/bɜːrˈkiːnəbeɪ/ bur-KEE-nə-beh)."...
INFORMATION ABOUT ABIBOU [HABIBOU] SAWADOGO
From https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=fr&u=https://www.musicinafrica.net/node/26557&prev=search [translated from French to English and given "as is".]
Abibou Sawadogo is a singer from the province of Salmentinga in Burkina Faso.
Her musical career began in 2001. She performed on small scenes without being known.
It is during the National Week of Culture (CNS) in 2002 that it is revealed to the general public of Burkina Faso.
In her songs, she raises awareness about the disadvantages of excision. It challenges the public power to respect the rights of children, the suffering of women and the harms of forced marriage. She calls for solidarity and peace."
Abibou Sawadogo's first name is also given as "Habibou" (for instance, in her video found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMsJx-wiTpM).
I believe that the name "Habibou", "Abibou", and "Habibatou" (which is also found in West Africa) are forms of the Arabic female name "Habiba". Here's information about the meaning of the name "Habiba" -and thus also the meaning of those other forms of that name:
"Habibah (Arabic: حَبِيْبَه, ḥabībah) alternatively Habiba is a female given name of Arabic origin meaning beloved, stemming from the male form of the name Habib."

..."The Burkina Faso country code 226 will allow you to call Burkina Faso from another country. Burkina Faso telephone code 226 is dialed after the IDD. Burkina Faso international dialing 226 is followed by an area code."
"fil" = son; In the context of this comment, that word is probably just a friendly, informal referent.
