Congolese Singer, Koffi Olomide Banned From Performing In Zambia

The government of Zambia has barred popular rhumba musician Koffi Olomide from entering the country.

Koffi Olomide

The Congolese singer and dancer, whose real name is Antoine Christophe Agbepa Mumba, was accused assaulting a photojournalist in Zambia during a previous tour.

He has also been accused of sexually assaulting his dancers, kidnapping them and employing them without valid permits in France.

This is not the first time Olomide has encountered problems in Zambia. In 2013, he assaulted a photojournalist and fled the border to avoid arrest. He was also removed from the line-up of artists scheduled to perform at the Chester Dean Arena in Lusaka when the 2016 video went viral.

He has been caught in similar controversies in his home country, the DRC. In 2001, security personnel in Kinshasa dragged Olomide out of his car and frog-marched him in public after he had defied an order to stop. In 2008, he was accused of kicking a TV cameraman and breaking his camera at a concert in the capital following a disagreement over recording rights. In 2012, Olomide assaulted his producer, Diego Lubaki, at a hotel in Kinshasa and was given a three-month suspended sentence.
