The ‘Papa Mobimba‘ hitmaker was supposed to perform on 30th June at Shimmy Beach Club.

The club made an official announcement on Tuesday via Twitter in response to the ‘STOP KOFFI OLOMIDE COLLECTIVE group which petitioned against the singer’s performance.

This came after Gallagher Convention Centre’s statement on Wednesday  morning that said they also cancelled Koffi’s show which was slated to take place on 28th June.

In January this year, the stressed singer was suspended for two years by French after being declared guilty of raping one of his former dancers, who was 15 years of age by then.

On top of that, during the court hearing, four of his former dancers allegedly said that the singer repeatedly assaulted them sexually between the year 2002 and 2006.

In 2016 July, the Kenyan Authorities arrested Koffi Olomide after he allegedly beat one of his dancers at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
