Despite being described as “Kenya’s richest singer” by her fans, Esther Akoth alias Akothee, insists that she is not that well-off.

In an interview with Mpasho, this writer asked the songstress who’s currently topping charts with her latest single dubbed “Tucheze” whether she considers herself rich.

Akothee said she considers herself rich because she is healthy. However, she does not think she is affluent because she has never gotten enough money and is still chasing it.

Surprisingly, the mother of five walks around in sunglasses worth Ksh1 million and a watch worth Sh60,000 but she says that does not necessarily mean that she is rich.

“My watch can pay your rent for the next 20 years. I’ve never known how to consider myself rich because if I was that rich I would not sit at home and not fly 28 hours to Vegas to go and collect money,” Akothee remarked.
