DR Congo musician, Koffi Olomide has been deported from kenya after a video of him kicking a woman at the airport went viral on social media.
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.
He had just been interviewed on Citizen TV before police apprehended him and his dancers. He was in Nairobi for a concert at Bomas of Kenya.
Koffi had apologised Friday evening after he saw the video, saying that he was defending his dancer from a 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.
Kenyan police chief Joseph Boinnet had given notice and instructed airport police to take immediate action.
