​Disgraced Congolese musician Koffi Olomide has asked his fans to stand with him and replace their display profile pictures on social media accounts with his because the 18-month jail term given to him after being found guilty of assault was unfair.

Koffi Olomide, on his official Facebook account, wrote:

“To all our friends, due to the injustice against Koffi Olomide, we kindly ask you to put this photo of our artist on all your accounts, social networks as a sign of protest and support for Koffi Olomide,” reads the post published on Tuesday, July 26.

According to Koffi, the prosecutor refused to listen to the dancer supposed to be the victim.

After the said assault on Friday, July 22, Koffi and the dancer had issued a statement both saying that all was good between them.

“Koffi did not attack me, it was a girl at the airport who was threatening me and Koffi came to defend me… Koffi can never beat us in public, he loves his dancers and he does not beat us. He is not someone who is aggressive… we don’t have any problem,” she said.

The team had just arrived in Nairobi for a show at the Bomas of Kenya on Saturday, July 23.

The explanation did not save him as he was arrested and deported a day later following Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet’s order.

He was subsequently arrested in Kishasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, and arraigned in court. Reports show he was handed 18 months jail term without the option of a fine.
