Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) musician, Koffi Olomide, has asked for forgiveness from Kenyans three months after he was arrested for kicking his female dancer in Kenya.

The king of African rumba made the headlines in July after his arrest at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi. He was arrested after the video of his alleged assault went viral on social media. The police chief ordered his arrest after which he was deported to the DRC the following day. Olomide’s apology was aired on a popular local comedy show (Churchill Show) in Kenya over the weekend. He asked for forgiveness for he is ‘only human’.

“My fellow brothers and sisters in Kenya, I want to send you a message of love and respect. I am sorry for what happened last time and my cry is that you forgive me for what happened. I am only a human being even though I am a superstar… Most people thought I would not be able to do it, but I am doing it and I would do it again from the bottom of my heart,” he said.

Days after his return to the DRC, he was picked up at his Kinshasa home and hauled before court. Olomide was charged with assault and battery and was detained in jail. He was later granted bail after spending four days in jail. His Kenyan show and another in Zambia were canceled after the bad press that followed his arrest and deportation.

He has now released a song dedicated to women. The song titled “Mama pardons” has a chorus of “Mama pardon”.
