Musician Koffi Olomide caught on tape kicking dancer at JKIA – VIDEO

Congolese musician Koffi Olomide was on Friday captured on tape kicking one of his dancers moments after he had landed at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).

Kenya police officers were forced to intervene and hold back the singer who appeared unperturbed by what he had done.

Nairobi News has not yet established what  triggered the altercation, but there are reports that the female dancer had argued with Koffi’s lead singer Cindy.

In the video that has gone viral, an agitated Koffi is seen heading to the dancer and unleashing a kick on her behind. Police officers who were at the scene rushed to calm him down, before his handlers escorted him to his car which immediately sped off.

Mr Olomide is scheduled to perform at Bomas of Kenya on Saturday, July 23, 2016.

Radio personality, Joseph Ogidi, alias Gidi Gidi, claimed to have spoken to Koffi’s handlers, who said that the entertainer had since apologized for the incident.

“The story is that one of the dancers had issues with Cindy (lead singer) and on arrival at JKIA they had an altercation then slapped her. Koffi was informed about the incident and became so furious. He then turned back, went straight to the dancer and kicked her in front of the Kenya police and other passengers. Koffi has since apologised claiming that he overreacted after the dancer slapped Cindy,” Ogidi wrote on his Facebook page.

“Cindy is one woman who Koffi really cherish. She is the band leader and almost untouchable in Koffi’s entourage,” he added.
