Congolese singer, Koffi Olomide gets 18-month jail term for assult

Koffi Olomide
Legendary Congolese singer, Koffi Olomide is sentenced to an 18-month jail term without the option of fine by a Kinshasa court following an assault on one of his female dancers in Nairobi, Kenya few days ago.
A congressman, Zakarie Bababaswe reportedly started a campaign against Koffi upon his arrival in Congo, going on TV to question why the singer was still walking scot-free despite damning evidence.

A Kenyan publication, The Star reports that the 56-year-old singer who has a long history of violence was then immediately arrested and charged to court for assault on the victim known as Pamela.
After reportedly pleading his innocence with his lawyers arguing that Koffi was manhandled by the police, the singer was found guilty of the offence and was subsequently sentenced to over a year in jail, the publication revealed.
Koffi Olomide was also once convicted in his home country in 2012, after assaulting Diego Lubaki, his producer.
