Koffi Olomide is set to return to Kenya this month despite being dramatically deported from the same country in June 2016 after assaulting one of his dancers while at JKIA. He will be performing at a government organised conference.
Legendary Congolese artiste Koffi Olomide was arrested at JKIA in 2016 after a video leaked online of him assaulting one of his dancers. The singer was seen kicking out at one of his female dancers for something she allegedly said that annoyed the singer. The ‘Ekotite’ singer was arrested and deported and his music banned from playing in Kenya.
On 24th April however, Koffi Olomide will be performing at the Devolution Conference in Kakamega, Kenya. The conference will be attended by Kenya’s 47 governors at a government organised event. Koffi confirmed his attendance at the event on his twitter handle. He said;
My brothers and sisters in Kenya, I’ll be in Kakamega for the Devolution Conference on the 24th of April at the Bukhungu Stadium. Be with me, I miss you so much.
Our countdown to the @KenyaGovernors 5th Annual Devolution Conference to be held in Kakamega County (April 23 – 27th 2018). You are all welcome to the green jewel @County037 as @KoffiOlomide_MM will be performing too . @GovWOparanya @WilliamsRuto #Devcon2018 #Kakamega pic.twitter.com/M8F0ySciYB
