Koffi Olomide has been arrested at Royal media services minutes after his interview with Lilian Muli Kanene.
The singer had been given a chance to explain himself over the incident where he assaulted one of his dancers at Jomo Kenyatta Airport earlier today.
In 2012, he was convicted in the Democratic Republic of Congo, his home country, of assaulting his producer.
The court gave the singer a three-month suspended prison sentence.
The altercation with his producer, Diego Lubaki, was over a debt of about $3,700 (£2,800), the court heard.
In 2008, he was accused of a kicking cameraman from DR Congo’s private RTGA television station and breaking his camera at a concert in the capital, Kinshasa, following disagreement over recording rights.
In the end, the speaker of national assembly stepped in to resolve the dispute, brokering a reconciliation between the star and owner of TV station.
News of the latest incident is trending on Twitter in East Africa under #KofiOlomide, with some people calling for the musician to be arrested, charged and deported
