Akothee has been in the eye of the storm these past few days after pictures of her gyrating on stage went viral.
The backlash has been tremendous but many Kenyans have come out to defend Akothee and Classic FM’s Maina Kageni was one of them. He spoke on his popular morning show saying:
She has made it very clear that she is not a role model for anyone. She just does Akothee, so let her be. You don’t like her stuff or her brand, don’t follow her.
Why do Kenyans hate so much? We are moral police on everything, yet in the cupboard, we have so many skeletons.
Maina was upset about the affair and went on to say:
This morning and if Akothee you are listening, I have some advice for you…The level of hate I saw on Akothee was ridiculous. Beyonce has done even worse than that. Have we even raised a voice? No. Let Akothee be. She’s got her own brand. She does her own thing.
He then told the singer to remember that her goal wasn’t to get rid of the haters but to work on the reactions she has to negativity.
