Lingala sensational singer Koffi Olomide has issued an apology to Kenyan. This comes three months after he assaulted one of his female dancers in the full glare of Kenyan media.
The fracas caught on camera as Koffi assaulted one of his dancers at JKIA
Congolese Lingala super star Koffi Olomide issued a much awaited for –and probably forgotten- apology to Kenyans following his violent behavior while on tour to the country.
Koffi was captured on camera on July 22, 2016, descending on one of his female dancers with blows and kicks upon arrival at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
According to reports, there had been issues in Koffi’s team, especially between the victim and Olomide’s wife Cindy.
His behavior saw his one-day concert cancelled and found himself spending the night at JKIA police cells after Kenyans called for his deportation.
He was arrested minutes after appearing on a live television interview with Lillian Muli, and driven straight to the police station.
He had tried explaining his way out of the attack, even making the victim confess that Kofii did not attack her despite overwhelming evidence.
Three months later today, Friday, October 21, Koffi issued the much awaited apology to Kenyans via his social media accounts.
“The most bold thing that I have ever done is apologize. Most people thought I would not be able to do it, but I am doing it and I would do it again from the bottom of my heart,
“My fellow brothers and sisters in Kenya, I want to send you a message of love and respect. I am sorry for what happened last time, and I ask that you forgive me for what happened. I am only a human being even though I am a superstar,” said Koffi.
