Legendary Congolese singer Antoine Christophe Agbepa Mumba, professionally known as Koffi Olomidé, has apologized to Kenyans four years after he was unceremoniously deported for assaulting his dancer in Nairobi.
In a video doing rounds on social media, he owned up to his 2016 conduct where he was captured on camera kicking his female dancer moments after landing at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).
“Jambo Kenya, this is Grand Mopao, Koffi Olomide, first, I am sincerely sorry for what I did,” said Olomide.
He explained that he erred and noted that it affected all those involved and reiterated that he is glad that the Kenyan government, through efforts by his lawyer Prof George Wajackoyah, had lifted his persona non grata proscription.
“To everybody who was affected by what I did, I apologize. I want to thank the Kenyan government for endorsing me back. I missed Kenya so much, the country of my life,” he added.
