Akothee is one to raise eyebrows whenever she goes. She doesn’t do anything half-assed. She is Kenya’s most talked about female songstress. This past weekend, Akothee was moved by the overwhelming support she received at her homecoming.
Akothee jetted back into the country on Saturday afternoon after a victorious stint in the United States Of America where she bagged two prestigious awards. She won Best Female Artiste in both African Muzik Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) and the just concluded African Entertainment Awards USA.
She was received by fans at JKIA where a convoy of luxurious cars were waiting. After a warm rousing welcome from fans, the Yuko Moyoni star drove off in a convoy that included a customised pearl white limousine with number plates reading “Akothee” in the front and “Madam Boss” at the rear. Hiring it cost them Sh300,000.
“I broke down in tears when I saw my fans, family and woman group come to receive me at the airport. I am lucky to have loyal fans and such a supportive family. I’m deeply touched. I couldn’t believe that the woman’s group I’m supporting in the village made it to receive me,” Akothee said.
She continued, “I don’t have much but the little I have, I give to the woman’s group to carry out their projects. My fiancé had offered to fly me in first class but I told him I need the money to do a project for a Woman’s group in Migori County and he obliged me.”
The convoy left JKIA for Ranalo’s in town where she bought her fans a surprise lunch to thank them for their unwavering support.
