Koffi Olomide to return on stage with free concert
Congolese musician Koffi Olomide is now keen to return his chequered career on track after going through multiple arrests, deportation and temporary detention in the last three weeks.
The musician announced that he will be staging two free concerts in Kinshasa next week.
“Koffi Olomide gives you an appointment on Saturday 13 August at the Stade Valodrome starting (1400 hours) for a free concert, and on Sunday August 14 at the Hotel Invest starting (1700 hours). Koffi sings freely,” he posted on Facebook.
The free concerts by the veteran musician are part of strategy to boost his fortunes in the wake of controversy after he was caught on tape kicking one of his dancers at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi.
He was arrested and deported by Kenyan authorities hours after the incident. More trouble awaited Olomide upon arrival in Kinshasha where he was apprehended by Congo Police and locked up for two days over the assault. He is currently out on bail.
