koffJust a day after Congolese singer Koffi Olomide was deported from Kenya, his career seems to be taking a nose dive.

Zambia has cancelled a series of concerts where Koffi was supposed to headline. He was scheduled to perform at this year’s 90th Show at the Zambia’s Agricultural And Commercial Society.

Zambians took to social media to demand that Koffi not be allowed into their country after the unfortunate incident at JKIA.

“Koffi has proved to be violent when musicians are generally peace ambassadors. In Zambia, he beat up one of his dancers and then a photojournalist, Mandela, at the Taj Pamodzi Hotel a year or two ago. Being an election year, Zambians shouldn’t be subjected to any form of violence. We have invested a lot in peace and that can’t be traded for anything – not for a concert,” Zambia Association of Musicians’ President Mr. Njoya Tembo said.

He added, “With this background, Koffi must be allowed time to handle his anger and emotions in peace, at home, in Congo DR. It is sad that a person we consider as a senior musician and role model in the region has gone on rampage assaulting women with impunity. He has proved to be bad influence in the past as well as in the present.”
