Koffi Olomide Arrives His Mansion After His Released From Makala Prison (Pics)

Star Congolese rumba singer
Koffi Olomide, who was expelled
from Kenya after allegedly
kicking one of his dancers, was
freed on bail Saturday in the
Democratic Republic of Congo, his lawyer said.
The entertainer, who has
recorded 26 albums, was
thrown out of Kenya on July 23
where he was due to stage a
concert after being filmed on arrival in Nairobi the day before,
kicking out and lunging at one
of his dancers.
"Prosecutors granted bail to
Koffi Olomide because he does
not present a flight risk," said Benoit Tayeye, one of his
lawyers. "The defence has
shown that the singer has a
known residence, is a famous
music star and his principal
interests are here in DRC." Authorities from the
prosecutor's office confirmed
Olomide's release from a
Kinshasa jail, adding that the
criminal case would not be
dropped. The singer was charged Tuesday with assault
and battery.
Neither the defence team nor the
prosecution gave details about
the bail fee.
Video footage of the incident went viral. A lawyer for Olomide
said previously the singer was in
fact trying to step in to resolve a
dispute between his dancers
and that his foot had slipped. -
