Congolese Rumba maestro Koffi Olomide has been deported back to his country from Kenya after a video of his kicking a female dancer went viral.
Olomide was arrested on Friday night, and was in police custody till Saturday morning. He was sent back to his home country via a Kenya Airways flight that left the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) at 11:35AM Kenyan time.
On friday, Koffi apologized and said he was only trying to protect his dancer from the lady who was threatening them at the airport.
“I watched the video with a lot of distress where it seems that I was assaulting one of my dancers. On the contrary I was defending my dancers from a lady who was threatening them at the airport,”
he said in a Facebook post.
