Musician Koffi Olomide has been taken into custody in the Democratic Republic of Congo, days after he was deported from Kenya for allegedly kicking one of his dancers at an airport in Nairobi.
A judge is considering whether to charge the star over the incident, which was filmed and went viral.
He will spend the night in detention and investigations will continue on Wednesday, a BBC reporter says.
Olomide has denied assault, though he has since apologised for his behaviour.
The Kenyan authorities deported the 60-year-old rumba singer and three of his dancers on Saturday to DR Congo’s capital, Kinshasa, following a public outcry over the incident.
