Kenyan singer Akothee is a great example of grass to grace.
From a taxi driver to an award-winning singer and millionaire, the mother of five is never shy of telling her life journey.
Well, in a recent interview with Buzz, Akothee talked about her wealth and she’s damn rich. She owns five mansions both home and abroad and her most expensive car is worth Sh30 million.
I own Mercedez Benz SLS, which I drive it in Lugano Switzerland. It’s worth $300,000 (Sh 30,000,000).
Akothee added that
I have five mansions; Rongo, Mombasa, Normandy (France), Lugano (Switzerland), and Zurich (Switzerland).
The self-proclaimed president of single mothers is known for her tight security and when asked how many bodyguards she has hired and what’s their roles, she confidently told Buzz;
Celebrity life is tough, I have to drive around in big cars and with an entourage. My drivers, bodyguards and the rest of the team cost alot. I have like a total of 20 bodyguards, but I deploy them according to my needs. When I am making public appearances, obviously I need more.
The Sweet Love hitmaker is also a farmer and she boasted about how she has 40,000 eucalyptus grandis, claiming each is Sh 1,000,000.
Akothee, is an easy target for trolls and she is often criticized for dating older men with many claiming that she inherited her riches from sponsors but she refuted the claims. She cleared the air by saying she’s a self-made boss. She told Buzz;
I have had to struggle for everything. It’s not easy, I get so many burnouts. I didn’t just wake up from a sponsor’s bed with millions of shillings in my account. You really have to grab every opportunity with both hands. If you’re employed don’t make money your main drive, focus on doing a good job and your boss will notice you.
Akothee, once a gospel singer was forced to quit the industry after she found out that Christians or rather churchgoers were hypocritical and judgemental. In a previous post, she said that preachers even used her status to preach and how she lost friends after she divorced her first husband, father of her three daughters.

AND THE DAY I MISS CHURCH EVERYONE WOULD KNOW THAT MAMA VESHA WAS NOT IN CHURCH TODAY! DO YOU KNOW WHY I STOPPED GOSPEL AND WENT SECULAR?
