Congolese Rhumba musician Koffi Olomide had a successful show on Saturday December 9.

The show dubbed Peace Concert was held at A.S. K Dome, with thousands of rhumba fans gracing the event.

Olomide’s performance was satisfactory but one thing that has also stuck in the minds on his fans is the choice of shoes for the performance.

The artist took to stage with a white pair of heels, a move that stirred mixed reactions among fans.

“Bro got the Kim K heels on,” an Instagram user said.

“Yaani koffi anakanyaga na pams kunishindabrendabilongoNimependa hizi heels 👠,” read another comment as another said, “Sasa Mbona avae viatu za madem.”

Others however felt that he looked in the pair of shoes.

“But there are things only Koffi Olomide is allowed to wear🤣”

The Peace Show concert however nearly faced a hitch, over a failed show in March 2016.

Nsana production, who were promoters of Olomide’s  2016 show had threatened to disrupt his recent show over Kshs10 million debt.

Olomide was unable to perform in the country in 2016 because he was deported after he was captured kicking one of his dancers at the Nairobi International Airport.

“Strictly note within 12 hours from date of this demand (December 7, 2023) clients intend to stop your show at The Dome, Jamhuri showground on Ngong road on 9th December 2023. We have taken liberty to inform the administrative units within the areas which you are purposed to perform,” the promoters’ demand letter read.

Through his lawyers, including George Luchiri Wajackoya, Olomide however dismissed the allegations by Nsana productions terming them as baseless.

“The accusations made against Koffi Olomide have been thoroughly reviewed and found to be frivolous, vexatious and without merit or substance.The event organiser, in partnership with Radio Africa Group Limited and other collaborators, reaffirmed their exclusive rights to the Peace Concerts, including the upcoming “Koffi Olomide Live – The Peace Concert” scheduled for December 9, 2023.

“They express confidence that the concert will proceed as planned, dismissing any association with the third parties who issued the demand letter,” his lawyers said.
