Koffi Olomide set to meet Uhuru after Dramatic Deportation from Kenya [VIDEO]

He was deported for assaulting female dancer at JKIA

Olomide is set to meet President Uhuru Kenyatta, who will be opening the event on 24 April. This comes after his deportation from the country on July 23, 2016.

The Lingala maestro was kicked out from Kenya after assaulting one of his female dancers at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), where they had just landed for a concert.

Divulging the information in a video, Koffi asked Kenyans to welcome him back to the country.

"My brothers and sisters in Kenya I’ll be in Kakamega for the Devolution Conference on the 24 of April at the Bukhungu Stadium. Be with me I miss you so much.

"I love you so much. Thanks, Governor Opranya for inviting me. Thank you for everything and for giving me the opportunity to be back," he said.

Why Koffi was deported from Kenya

Olomide was captured on video kicking one of his dancers and the video went viral on social media. Kenyans on Twitter were outraged by his behavior and demanded his immediate deportation.

After spending a night at JKIA he was taken back to Kinshasa where on landing he was arrested.

The artist was then sentenced to 18 months in prison but was later released on bail.
