A French court yesterday, handed Congolese singer Koffi Olomide a two-year suspended prison sentence for the statutory rape of one of his former dancers when she was 15.
Koffi Olomide Olomide went on trial after four former dancers claimed he sexually assaulted them several times between 2002 and 2006.
The assaults allegedly happened in the Democratic Republic of Congo as well as in France, including at a villa outside Paris where the women said they were held against their will.
The singer, whose real name is Antoine Agbepa Mumba, was first charged in 2012 with aggravated rape however, the charges were subsequently reduced.
