Akothee comes out to strongly defend presenters and DJs... mention names of presenters and DJs who have personally helped her

While some musicians claim presenters and DJs are to be blamed for impeding the growth of Kenyan music, Akothee says it’s the same presenters and DJs who held her hands and helped become who she is today.

The controversial songbird says Mzazi Willy M Tuva discovered her while he had gone for Mseto tour in Rongo. She first reveals that Mzazi helped her organized her first media tour in Tanzania.

“I released my first single in 2014 , I dint know anything about airplay, I was just having fun, I organised a show with afew djs I knew already @kaytrixx_ke was very supportive then, when I released my second single Pashe I met @mzaziwillytuva in Rongo when he had come for mseto East Africa in Rongo university, I played the song for him and he was like when you come to nairobi make sure you come to club tribeka, so we clicked from there, the only presenter I knew was @mzaziwillytuva , I was very ambituos, so I asked him to organise for me a media tour in tanzania, and because I dint have a manager I asked him to come witt me , then I did my first media tour with only 2 songs in tanzania, East Africa Tv, @skytanzania and @djtass treated me well, climbing the ladder I kept relationship with everyone I was introduced too by @mzaziwillytuva , he invited me to campus tour which made me realise my potential,” said Akothee.

Have personal touch with your business

Akothee also sent a message to fellow musicians whining about presenters and DJs not doing enough to push Kenyan music. She says that musicians need to developed a close relationship with presenters and DJ so they can come in handy when organizing music projects like media tours, concerts which all aim at promoting Kenyan music.

“We Kenyan artists must learn the industry and how to live with people on this streets, have personal touch with your business, I organise my own media tour I call presenters and djs personally before the manager comes in, its my shit its my business,” wrote Akothee.

I thank all the presenters and djs who have wholeheartedly supported kenyan music , I make jokes out of this situation PLAY KENYAN MUSIC PLAY KENYAN MUSIC, i find it funny Coz i found it here and I hope we find change , but we kenyan artists must learn the industry and how to live with people on this streets, have personal touch with your business, I organise my own media tour I call presenters and djs personally before the manager comes in, its my shit its my business.I thank God all presenters are married none of them ever picked a scandal with me , but its very difficult to collabo with kenyan artists, the moment you keep contacts for 2,3 days , you are already treanding for all bad reasons, OMO TAKE YOUR BUSINESS PERSONALLY, have afew people who are ready to support you,not everyone wants to see you up their, but above all respect relationships, about content hiyo msijali, because even a song that has failed in tanzanai or nigeria is a hot in kenya ??, hiyo tutakutana na presenters and djs nyuma ya tent baadaye ?brand yourself and understand your brand, your wall is your Tv chanel , your fans are your listeners, your yutube chanel is your reality show , keep it 100%REAL ,
