SINGER- Police Arrest Koffi Olomide For Assaulting Female Dancer


Congolese music legend, Koffi Olomide, has been arrested by police in Kenya for assaulting a female dancer at theJomo Kenyatta International Airport.

This was following a live television interview on Citizen TVwhere the footage of the alleged assault took center stage.
Kenya’s Inspector General of Police, Joseph Boinnet, reportedly gave the order that Olomide be arrested, .
The singer risks facing a year jail sentence if convicted under the penal code of the country, which states that “any person who unlawfully assaults another is guilty of a misdemeanor and is liable to imprisonment for one year”, report says.

This is not the first time the Congolese star has been linked with such a behaviour.
In 2008, he was "accused of kicking and breaking the camera of a cameraman from DR Congo’s private RTGA television station", .
He has already been convicted of assaulting his producer, Diego Lubaki, in an altercation that occurred in 2012. An incident that led to three months prison sentence.
When he is not kicking a woman at the airport or assaulting his long term music producer, Olomide is a music genius.
He is the founder of the Quartier Latin International orchestra with many notable artists including Fally Ipupa and Ferré Gola.
The singer once received four awards on a single night at the annual Kora Awards in South Africa for 2002 and 2003.
