Legendary singer gets 1-yr prison term for kicking woman

Koffi Olomide has been arrested and sentenced to a year in prison for assaulting a woman in Nairobi, Kenya.

Koffi Olomide

Last week a footage of the legendary singer physically assaulting a woman in Kenya went viral. Olomide's performance which was scheduled during the 2016 90th Show at the Zambia’s Agricultural And Commercial Society, was cancelled following his incorrigible actions at the airport where he beat up the dancer.

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.

Koffi Olomide has been arrested and questioned on orders of the Attorney-General. "May the righteousness of man be just and fair" wrote the singer on his Facebook page.

The musician was also deported to Kinshasa, DRC by Kenya Airways after spending Friday night at JKIA’s police cell.

Olomide apologised for his behaviour in a post via his official Facebook page yesterday, asking for forgiveness, also apologising to the citizens of Congo who felt "dishonoured by this behaviour."

He also apologized during his interview with Congolese national broadcaster RTNC.
