Singer Akothee was recently in trouble over her dress code in parliament. The singer visited parliament in a very short skirt while pushing for her foundation something which angered many.
In an interview recently, Akothee confessed that she will still wear the same skirt in case she’s going to parliament again.
“Given a chance back, I will do the same dress code. What shocked me was the fact that people forgot my aim of going to Parliament. They started focusing on my dress code, which doesn’t feed anyone. The people I’m feeding right now in Turkana are actually walking naked. Why isn’t anyone talking about Turkana people who are hungry and naked?” she said.
She further added that that the skirt wasn’t the problem it was actually her legs and didn’t understand why there was so much fuss around it.
“That was one of my best dress code. We got an email from the PA saying we should wear suits, I wore a suit. My legs are the ones longer than the skirt. If it was worn by another woman, that would have been a maxi to her. When I wake up, I dress according to the occasion.”
