Congolese Rumba maestro Koffi Olomide was arrested this morning at his home in Kinshasha, DRC, following a court order. The singer was deported by the Kenyan government last week after a video emerged showing him kicking one of his female dancers at Nairobi Airport.
Footage of the incident caused a social media outcry with thousands taking to Facebook and Twitter to demand that he be thrown out of the country.
Olomide’s show at Zambia’s Agricultural And Commercial Society, where he was scheduled to perform at this year’s 90th Show, was cancelled as a result of the incident. Photos shows the legendary singer being handcuffed and taken to court
