Akothee and Maina Kageni

Akothee is one of the few women that we have around who tries to stand by what she believes in. And what is that exactly?


That she lives her life the way she sees fit, is unapologetic about the choices and the decisions that she makes.



And she has got into hot soup many times for this attitude that she possesses. But the mother of 5 has no qualms about stepping on toes and she apparently did so last week when she was a guest on Maina Kageni’s morning show.

What did the president of the single mothers’ society do exactly? Her dress sense offended some purveyors of fashion or shall I say the Kenyan moral police.

Akothee whose real name isĀ Esther Akoth posted an image with Maina Kageni after her interview on her social media pages.

The image elicited shock and fury about the length of her attire. Followers on her Instagram page had these to say:

While some may see her dress sense as improper, Akothee has done this before. Earlier this year, she performed in London and it wasn’t her performance that was critiqued but what she wore during it.

Some compared her dressing to Beyonce’s but that was as far as the similarities went, for she was torn down with claims that she lacked the class of the former.

Me, I like that Akothee takes risks, she is clearly not everyone’s cup of tea and that is o.k No man was ever liked by everyone. Even Jesus!
