OAP Freeze is adding his contribution to the ongoing drama surrounding Congolese musician Koffi Olomide who was arrested and jailed for one year for kicking his dancer in the stomach.
Congolese musician Koffi Olomide has been arrested, charged with assault & battery and detained in prison for kicking one of his female dancers at Nairobi Airport. Freeze reacted to the story today, describing Koffi as a scapegoat for a crime “many men are guilty of. He wrote,
Talking about the situation, Freeze says this is an opportunity to speak out against violence.
Although I sympathize with Koffi Olomide and his family as he begins his 1 year jail term, (this has not been confirmed) for assaulting a dancer, I feel the need to draw attention to the consequences of violence towards women.
It’s a pity that Koffi Olomide has become a scapegoat for a crime many men are guilty of, however, such a high profile case would help enlighten the male public on the negative aftermath of such an action, and possibly serve as a deterrent for future offenders.
Congolese musician Koffi Olomide was arrested by Police at his home on Tuesday. He was taken to a court building, subsequently charged by a prosecutor with assault & battery and detained in prison pending the outcome of his case. This is coming after the music star was deported by the Kenyan government last week after a video emerged showing him kicking one of his female dancers at Nairobi Airport. The Music star has now released a statement addressing the detention. It read,
“To all our friend (E) S, koffifiles and koffillettes: due to the injustice that sustains our artist koffi olomide, which has just been transmitted in prison without-conviction-pronounced, nor verdict of judgment and the refusal by the prosecutor to listen to the Dancer supposed to be the victim, we kindly ask you to put this photo of our artist on all your accounts, social networks as a sign of protest and especially of supports for the artist”
