Congolese singer Kofi Olomide has apologized to Kenyans 3 months after the airport drama at the Jomo Kenyatta international airport, that saw him spending a night in Kenyan police cells and subsequently getting deported back to Kinshasa.
In a video message aired on the Churchill show, the selfie hit maker asked Kenyans to forgive him as he is human even though a super star.
“I am only a human being despite being the superstar Koffi Olomide,” he said.
He also said that it was a bold move for him to apologize and also declare his love for Kenyans.
“The ‘most bold’ thing I have ever done is apologize to the world. Many couldn’t believe I could apologize, but I did and I would do it again. Thank You. Stay blessed Kenya. I love you.” He said at the beginning.
Kofi Olomide’s was in July involved in drama, after he was filmed purportedly kicking a female member of his entourage immediately after arriving at the Jomo Kenyatta international airport ahead of a scheduled performance at the Bomas of Kenya.
This sparked outrage among Kenyans on twitter who immediately demanded his deportation.
His performance at the Zambia agricultural show was later cancelled and he later spent a few days at a prison in his country after a court found him guilty of assault.
