Koffi Olomide caused an uproar the last time he was in the country; when he was kicked out of Kenya on the 23rd of July 2016 after kicking one of his female dancers at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
Guess what guys? He is back to perform and not many of you are happy about it. Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya has brought him back to perform in Kakamega during the governors’ Devolution Conference between the 24th and 26th of this month. He released a statement in form of a video to is fans pouring out his love for them and asking his Kakamega fans to be in attendance.
MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN KENYA I’LL BE IN KAKAMEGA FOR THE DEVOLUTION CONFERENCE ON THE 24 OF APRIL AT THE BUKHUNGU STADIUM. BE WITH ME I MISS YOU SO MUCH. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. THANKS TO GOVERNOR OPARANYA FOR INVITING ME. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING, FOR GIVING ME AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE BACK
The uproar started once again as people could not believe he is back. Now to make matters worse, it has been rumored that Koffi will be paid a whopping 23 million for his performance. This is money from the devolution budget that is supposed to help grow the county of Kakamega but it is being used for entertainment purposes. A fact which does not make some Kakamega residents happy.
Si governors watavunjika migongo! After he was ‘deported’, Koffi Olomide set to bring Kakamega to a standstill
Bien Amie of Sauti Sol on the contrary, thinks Olomide deserves that amount of money he is rumored to be paid. He said that in Koffi’s defense, he has worked hard to earned that respect saying he has been able to entertain 3 straight generations. Bien said:
Good for Koffi this man has 20 albums. Koffi has done everything we have never done including entertaining three generations. Koffi deserves that kind of money
I don’t know about you but in my opinion, I think where we are as a country now we really need to understand the importance of prioritizing things especially when it involves money for a whole county.
