The mother of two urged Kenyans to stop pressuring women and artistes in general. She said society should not dictate how one is supposed to live with the perception that they are role models who influence the youth.
we cannot say that akothee you are a role model,that you influence a lot of people and that you should live this way, you should teach our children this.
it is not akothee’s duty to teach our children, it’s our obligation as parents to teach our children
The 52-year-old woman rep noted that Akothee’s performance was not only entertaining but also a source of income for many.
her show, for the people that went there was entertaining, and was income for the people that work for her and the hotel.
She also added that critics owe the ‘Abebo’ hitmaker an apology because she was doing her work and displaying her art.
