, NAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 24 – The promoter of Koffi Olomide concert that was set to be held on Saturday says those who had booked tickets for the show will get their refunds.
Speaking to Capital FM News Jules Nsana says he has directed the online firm Jambo Link where fans were booking their tickets to return the money back to them.
He says he was devastated at the turn of events and apologised to Kenyans for what happened which caught him by surprise.
“I made losses, count the bookings of the venue, the sound, air tickets and talent fees, it’s unfortunate,” he said, without saying how much he lost.
Congolese singer Koffi Olomide was deported back to his country on Saturday morning after he allegedly assaulted one of his female dancers.
Olomide who was scheduled for a concert on Saturday at the Bomas of Kenya was captured on a video kicking one of his female dancers causing uproar on social media leading to his arrest on Friday night.
His lawyer George Wajackoyah who confirmed the deportation however questioned the move saying there was no complainant.
“He has been deported. The police didn’t proffer any charges against him because there was no complainant. So they decided to whisk him away,” he said.
“I will be talking to my client later to see what action he is going to take for this inhuman treatment.”
