“To you the flowers to us the tears…Mom this October 3rd God decided you go find Dad. I give thanks to God Mom…So much I loved you. In me you’ll always and forever stay…Rest in peace Mama Ami…” Koffi mourned.
Initially, prosecutors were seeking a seven-year sentence but the charges were reduced after the court dismissed the assault and kidnapping charges.
The ruling was made in absentia as the controversial singer failed to attend the court session.
The 62-year-old was ordered to pay the former dancer 5,000 Euros or Sh570,000 in damages.

” I have just spoken to Koffi Olomides handlers. The story is that one of the dancers had issues with Cindy (Koffi’s wife) and on arrival at JKIA they had an altercation then slapped her. Koffi was informed about the incident and become so furious.
He then turned back, went straight to the dancer and kicked her infront of the Kenya police and other passengers. Koffi has since apologised claiming that he overreacted after the dancer slapped Cindy.
Cindy is one woman who Koffi really cherish. She is the band leader and almost untouchable in Koffi’s entourage”.
