If you did not know Koffi Olomide's age, then you would be surprised to learn that the Congolese singer is 64 years old, though nothing in his life gives the impression that he's approaching the later stages of his career.
The musician continues to create hits while showing off an incredible fashion sense for a grandpa, and YEN.com.gh shines a light on some of his unique and crazy looks.
1. The singer was born Antoine Christophe Agbepa Mumba back in 1956 and started music as a background vocalist in the 1970's.
2. In 1986, he formed his own band Quartier Latin International and has never looked back, creating his own music brand that has been emulated by many following in his footsteps.
3. Koffi is what you refer to as a fly grandpa who would rather lose a photo opportunity if he's not wearing shades.
4. His white beard also gives him a very young-ish look, and when it comes to African wear, the old man does not play.
5. In his music videos, the singer goes extra crazy on his outfits and tries untested waters giving almost perfect results.
His recent music video with Bongo star Diamond is a great example.
6. Even though spotting a potbelly, Koffi tries to maintain a good physique which definitely helps maintain his looks.
7. Bright colours are essential to the singer and for someone who loves standing out, what better way than to don some shouting suits.
8. There is probably no singer in Africa that has adapted to the ever-changing trends and even become a trendsetter in his own right.
9. The singer has left a mark in music in Africa and the world and certainly deserves a museum not only detailing his music but fashion.
