– Koffi Olomide’s show promoter in Kenya is counting losses after the soukous maestro was deported over the weekend

– The promoter had already paid Olomide’s performance fees as well as booked his stay at the Villa Rosa Kempinski’s presidential suite  
– Olomide was deported after assaulting his female dancer at  the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) on Friday, July 22

Koffi Olomide’s promoter, Nsana Jules, word has it, has sunk into the murky waters of depression after losing quite a hefty amount after the Soukous maestro was deported after assaulting his dancer at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) on Friday, July 22.

The promoter, Standard reports, lost over KSh 5million over the show that never went  down- reports indicate that Jules has lapsed into depression over the staggering losses- the show, if it had gone down, would have been Olomide’s biggest in Kenya.
After the singer was deported, fans who had parted with KSh 4,000 for VIP tickets and KSh 2,500 for regular tickets  started calling the promoter, demanding for a refund of the same.

The promoter had already paid Olomide’s performance fees as well as taking care of all the logistics ahead of the show that was meant to go down on Saturday, July 23 at the Bomas of Kenya.
In addition to the fees, Olomide had already been booked into a presidential suite at the posh Villa Rosa Kempinski- a stay that never was.

Olomide angered Kenyans when he pounced on one of his female dancers and kicked her hard upon their arrival at the JKIA, in the glare of cameras and police officers.
Kenyans took to social media and especially Twitter where they called for the arrest of the singer and his immediate deportation following the incident.
Others adviced that they boycott his show that was planned to go down at the Bomas of Kenya on Saturday.
Among those who called for the singer’s deportation included MPs Joyce Lay, Alfred Keter and Johanna Ng’eno.
They warned that they would take the issue into their arms if the government did not deport Olomide.
However, appearing on Citizen TV before he was arrested, Koffi laughed off the accusations that he beat his dancer.
Instead, he said that he was protecting his crew from an intruder who wanted to steal from them.
