The controversial rhumba maestro Koffi Olomide is likely to face seven years in jail over sex assault allegation in France.
According to AfricaNews.com, “the 62-year-old musician is standing trial for allegedly sexually assaulting four former dancers who say they were held against their will at a villa outside Paris”.
The crimes were allegedly committed in Paris between 2002 and 2006.
Olomide denies these allegations.
He was slapped with similar charges by authorities in DR Congo in 2016 for kicking one of his dancers.
Koffi Olomide is also the subject of a judicial process in Zambia, where he was previously barred from entering after he slapped a Rwandan photojournalist in Lusaka in 2012.
