The Congolese singer was arrested on Saturday, July 23, 2016 after a video footage of the assault turned up social media.

Olomide's performance scheduled during the 2016 90th Show at the Zambia’s Agricultural And Commercial Society, has now been cancelled following his incorrigible actions.

The President of the management Committee, Ben Shoko, disclosed on Sunday, July 24, 2016 that the cancellation is a direct result of Olomide's actions at the airport.
