(a) Konpliman! (b) Bravo! (c) Ayi Bobo!


Explanation:
Several options for your banner: all pretty much conveying the same idea of "congratulations" with a slightly different flavor.
a) Kompliman! (standard,close to French)
b) Bravo! (understood by all, general)
c) Ayi Bobo! (definitely ethnic)

Hope this helps,
Regards
