After four days in detention, Koffi Olomide was finally released from prison on Saturday 30th July 2016. The Congolese Rumba Star was arrested in Kinshasa, after he got deported from Kenya for alledgedly kicking one of his dancers on the tummy at the Jumu Kenyatta Airport Nairobi.
His defense was able to argue in court that Koffi cannot flee from Congo because of the allegations against him, and thus he was released on bail, with a later date of the hearing to announced.
In 2012, Koffi whose discography counts 26 albums was given a three months suspended sentence, for hitting and wounding his producer.
We hope he learns that violence doesn't resolve issues.
