“Ini hangu ndaona kunge Koffi akadzinga Shughetta…problem apa haisitombori yaShughetta coz he hadn’t noticed kuti Koffi asvika, problem chaiyo ndiKoffi akaita kukanda ruoko kunge arikudzinga nhunzi. Ini handina kutofara nezvakaitwa naKoffi.. Ndiwo maonero angu”
The incident involving Kofi Olomide and Shughetta in Kadoma was an unfortunate and regrettable incident that should serve as a cautionary tale for all artists. While Koffi’s music may be beloved by many, it is important to remember that respect and professionalism are just as important as talent and success.
Koffi Olomide is a Congolese musician and dancer known for his soukous-style music, which has been popular in Africa for decades. However, on a recent tour to Zimbabwe, Kofi made headlines for all the wrong reasons when he chased away a DJ called Shughetta from the stage during a show in Kadoma.
The incident sparked outrage among music fans in Zimbabwe, with many condemning Koffi’s behavior as uncalled for and disrespectful. Some fans even demanded that Kofi be banned from performing in the country.
This is not the first time Kofi has been involved in a controversial incident. In 2016, he was arrested in Kenya for assaulting one of his female dancers. He was subsequently deported from the country and banned from entering for three years.
Despite these incidents, Kofi remains one of the most popular musicians in Africa, with a dedicated fan base that spans the continent. He has won numerous awards and accolades for his music, and his unique style and dance moves continue to inspire generations of musicians.
However, the incident in Kadoma serves as a reminder that even the most talented and successful artists are not above the law or immune to criticism. Kofi’s behavior was unacceptable, and it is up to him to make amends and ensure that such incidents do not happen again in the future.
