International music star, Antoine Christophe Agbepa Mumba a.k.a. Koffi Olomide was handed two years suspended jail sentence by a court in France for raping a 15-year-old girl.
Nigerian Tribune reports that he was sentenced in absentia as he was a no show.
This sentence means that the 62-year-old music composer, producer and singer faces an arrest if he commits further offenses, according to BBC.
The graduate of Business Economic and pioneer of the soukous genre was ordered by the court to pay a fine of 5,000 Euros ($5,700; £4,300) in damages to the former dancer.
He was also ordered to pay the same amount to the court for illegally bringing three women into France.
