Akothee is the self-proclaimed richest musician in Kenya. The mother of 5 has had a stellar run keeping her name in the consciences of the public.
She does so by sharing tidbits of her family life on social media.
Some of the things she speaks about are first, her family and secondly her persona vis-a-vis her career.
She rarely shies away from speaking about topics that many would avoid uttering even in the sanctity of their homes.
An example of her candor is that she spoke about nunu and how many Kenyan ladies are using it badly, instead of getting rich off of it.
But the month of January was a month of craziness for the artist. She spoke deeply about her fight with the father of one of her children who had taken her to court for a custody hearing.
Her story was an intimate look into the mind of a strong woman who clearly has fears and hardships that she is struggling with.
We all wondered when the more colourful and jovial Akothee would re-appear. Well, she has been back and she recently posted a video of herself on the beach.
Her being on the beach was not the shock in itself, it was the fact that she owns a beachfront property, which for most Kenyans is a pipe dream.
The businesswoman has surprised again. Hata beach anayo! Wee!
This woman reminds us average Kenyans that our dreams are valid. If she can own a beach, maybe you can too!
