DR CONGO – Koffi Olomide, his gesture, one more

Alas! He has not released a new album. He is paying another news: a breach of morality. This Sunday, September 18, 2022, a video, featuring the star of the Congolese rumba and one of her dancers in a recording studio in Paris, ignites social networks. The artist has had inappropriate gestures towards her dancer: he has touched the most symbolic part of female grace: the buttocks. Definitely. He’s incorrigible, the great Mopao.

This video brings to light the perennial question that, a few years ago, had stirred the world of the arts when Gabriel Matzneff and Harvey Weinstein had been shaken by the flood MeeToo: should we separate the artist from the man – the man from the artist? The artist and the work must therefore “follow the same plan: a commitment, leading to the indissociability between the two. An indifference: they have become the same”.

Koffi Olomidé, the 13th apostle as his fans call him, likes to get into trouble. It is still at the heart of another controversy: a scandal of a sexual nature. Social networks are making a fuss. The reaction of Internet users around the world was not long in coming. All criticize the lack of modesty and bad morals of the Congolese artist. In a very short video, which can be viewed on social networks, we clearly see the Congolese star “putting himself in a good place”; he is touching one of his dancers. But make no mistake, it was just a musical rehearsal. All in all, this is an inappropriate gesture that should seriously tarnish the image of the artist, the ambassador, of Congolese culture.

Let’s circumscribe the thing so that everyone can get their little idea of this video that starts, since this Sunday, September 18, 2022, the Web! A recording studio. A rehearsal session. Koffi Olomide enters. A charming young lady, beautiful to eat, I do not exaggerate anything, is already in the place with the orchestra. Koffi Olomidé passes a wandering hand on the young lady’s buttocks. Probably to kill a fly that sucks her butt. But nothing is certain. The young lady, surprised, jumps. She had not seen anything coming. She turns around and sees Koffi. Man’s stature tempers his anger. It shows no reaction. Should we take that for assent. Not so sure. Good! We don’t know. Let’s not put the cart before the horse.

Koffi Olomidé is not at his first feat. In 2016, a compromising video was circulating on the Web. The Congolese rumba singer beat one of his dancers copiously at the Nairobi airport in Kenya. Kicking, helping. A real English boxing. Incarcerated in Makala prison in Kinshasa, he was later released. Stars always enjoy a certain grace, a form of impunity even when they are caught on the facts. For acts of sexual assault on minors and forcible confinement of persons between 2002 and 2006 in Paris, the Grand Mopao had been sentenced to 18 months of suspended prison.
