Timeline

2019

In March 2019, he was given a two-year suspended prison sentence by a French court, for the statutory rape of one of his former dancers when she was 15 years old. He was also ordered to pay €5,000 in damages to the dancer. Three other women, all former dancers in Olomide's band alleged that he had sexually assaulted them several times between 2002 and 2006, and held them against their will in a villa outside Paris. The court dismissed those charges but fined Olomide another €5,000, for assisting the three women to enter France illegally.

2013

Koffi – who mostly refers to himself as "Mopao" – has a new release known as La Chicotte a Papa, having recently excelled in hits like Lovemycine, Diabolos, Grand Pretre Mere and Soupou, Cle Boa, among others. Koffi's talent could be compared to the once king of African rhumba, Franco Luambo Makiadi, who also saw many artists pass through his expert hands during his days. Today, Olomde is one of Africa's most popular musicians.

2008

Olomide has a history of assaulting people. In 2008 he was accused of kicking a cameraman at a concert in Kinshasa; the matter was resolved out of court. In 2012 he was convicted of assaulting his producer, and received a three-month suspended sentence. In July 2016 while on a concert trip to Kenya, Olomide was filmed kicking one of his female dancers at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. The video went viral, his planned concert at The Bomas of Kenya was cancelled, and he was deported. Five days later he was arrested at his home in Kinshasa, and the same day sentenced to 18 months in prison, which, after the intervention of the Congolese head of state, was commuted to three months.

1980

Olomide was part of the Papa Wemba musical, in the early 1980s. He has trained many young musicians, some of whom have since left his Quartier Latin band and gone solo. Some of those who have left are Fele Mudogo, Sam Tshintu, Suzuki 4x4, Soleil Wanga, Bouro Mpela, Fally Ipupa, Montana Kamenga, Ferre Gola. However Suzuki 4x4 has recently showed up once more in some of Quartier Latin shows, along with new recruits like Cindy Le Coeur, a female singer with very high pitched vocals, recorded here, in the song L'Amour N'existe Pas (Love doesn't exist).

1970

Upon his return to the Congo in the 1970s, Koffi joined Papa Wemba's band, Viva la Musica, initially as a composer and songwriter, and later as a lead vocalist. In 1986, he formed his band known as Quartier Latin International, which celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2006. Since then, he has performed and recorded both with the group and by himself. Over the years, he built up a faithful fan base internationally, particularly in Africa and Europe. Koffi popularized the slower style of Soukous, which he dubbed Tcha Tcho. His music can be quite controversial, taking on current events and topics considered taboo in some conservative societies. He also participated in the salsa music project Africando. For his effort, Effrakata, released in 2001, Koffi received four awards on a single night at the annual Kora Awards in South Africa for 2002 and 2003, including the award for Best African Artist, which he won in 1998. More recently, he won the Kora Award for "Best African Artist of The Decade". This established one of his many aliases, the 'Quadra Kora Man.'

1956

Antoine Christophe Agbepa Mumba (13 July 1956), known professionally as Koffi Olomidé, is a Congolese Soukus singer, dancer, producer, and composer. He has had several gold records in his career. He is the founder of the Quartier Latin International orchestra with many notable artists, including Fally Ipupa and Ferré Gola.
