Akothee's one tough question to gospel artists such as Willy Paul and Bahati

Singer Akothee has never shied from revealing her true thoughts and whenever she does, tongues are always left wagging.

This time round, the singer had a bone to pick with gospel artists who she claimed are as fake as they come. Ok, that’s not news we know, but Akothee wondered why they always flock clubs and secular artists can’t headline a church event.


Speaking in an interview with Mseto East Africa, the mother of five claimed Kenyan gospel musicians are hypocrites as they preach water but take wine.

”I have a question I want to ask, why do gospel artistes attend our shows in night clubs but we can not perform in churches? I have bumped into some of them in Tribeka. What are they looking for in night clubs?” she asked. 

Her comments come after singer Size 8 asked her to become a born again christian. Unsurprisingly, Akothee said she’ll never become a Christian because they’ll never accept her in any way.





  1. It’s not all about people accepting you but Christ who is able to transform any life regardless of the past someone has lived. Once accepted by Christ, people will have no choice but to accept you because you have in you King of Kings and Lord of lords.

    This is inspiring jamu

  3. Akothee has spoken her mind. we as gospel musicians let us change in JESUS NAME

  4. Some people are not gospel artists but secular singers disguised as praisers of Christ.

    Mmmh..Maybe Akothe would question their character and not where they are found.Jesus was a friend of sinners,ate and drunk with them

    That’s true but not all gospel artists behave secularly. It’s only a few of them do that. But Akothee don’t say that people won’t accept you. It’s not about people, it’s about you and your God. God is the one who accepts people.

    Let’s try 2030 I knew one and only one chibaloza wengine, GOD knows.

  8. Turuuu…You have a right to subscribe to any religion…If she’s an atheist or if she decides she just doesn’t want to be a christian or do gospel songs let her be
    Anyhuuu…Afadhali yeye mwenye tunamjua kuliko hawa watu ambao huvalia ngozi za kondoo…plus she might be ‘holier’ or she is compared to most of these people we call the gospel artists

  9. You can’t become a Christian because you know who you worship

  10. The Bible says Christ came for the lost and to give hope and restoration, Jesus himself set an example hence there’s no condemnation for those who believe in Christ Jesus .if gospel artist go to the club they tend to bring the lost and redeem them from the Akothe salvation is not in church nor in clubs salvation is between you and ur God

  11. People should turn back to Jesus christ we are living in end times and everything is written in the Bible for reference

  12. Well I see no harm in where one is found provided if and only if one has confessed his or her faith …As the kingdom of God is real and so is the devil’s kingdom which is actively offering… Akothe you might as well as why gospekl artist go to the toilet…

  13. She didn’t mention the two on your news highlight she generalized on all gospel artists not specific… Stop dragging people’s names in unnecessary gossip. Good job for you have wasted my two minutes

    Gosh! Why use Bahati and Willy Paul to attract people just put what is said,otherwise Artists should stop with hypocrisy.

  15. Matthew 21:31,

    “Which of the two did what his father wanted?” “The first,” they answered. Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you.

  16. I love the way she is honest
    And she is true
    She knows what is real and what’s fake
    It’s either you are born again or not
    God’s Marcy, Grace and Love should never be a justification for one to be lukewarm

    And if she is convicted by the Holy Spirit and she decides to be born again then people’s opinion don’t matter
    They didn’t accept apostle Paul at first, even the 12 disciplines
    But God’s Grace and Love was enough for Poul
    You only enter even alone
    The most important thing is to ask God to help you be right with Him

  17. Willie Jones Preacher : March 1, 2019 at 4:20 pm

    We gospel artist have completely failed.
    If the light in you is darkness how dark are you?

    Akothee has a chance to be born again but a Christian who has fallen it is impossible to be born again, it is trying to crucify Jesus again.
    Take care as you preach the gospel to those in the world, otherwise you will join the world.

  18. Akothee shouldn’t be misunderstood for her point of not being a Christian and further more she’s one. Size8 to continue leading by an example.
