Congolese singer and songwriter, Grand Mopao alias Koffi Olomide landed in Nairobi on Wednesday, December 6 for his much-anticipated peace concert going down on Saturday, December 9, at the ASK Dom Showground.

In an exclusive interview with Classic 105, the Rhumba maestro expressed his openness to collaborating with Kenyan artistes, noting that it is his "last dream."

"I'm ready for them. That's my last dream – to work with a Kenyan artiste. I am ready. I have like four days in Nairobi. If anyone wants to meet, we talk. I'm ready," Olomide declared.

He has previously collaborated with Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz in 'Achii' and their masterpiece 'Waah.'

Olomide recently collaborated with Nigerian singer Davido in a song dubbed 'Legende.'

Olomide also revealed he was missing Kenya noting that seven years felt like an eternity, especially considering the challenges he faced with immigration

"I missed Kenya. I missed my family and my fans. Seven years (away), nobody has suffered like I did, like not getting the opportunity to be back in this country," he shared.

While crediting his fanbase for his success in his career, the 'Waah' crooner promised to deliver an electrifying performance in his upcoming concert.

"I will die on the stage, I will give the best of my soul and my heart in each song. I need to see again these people who made Koffi. Like 60 per cent of my country has been built in Kenya."
