Akothee has decided to become an inspiration to kids
Akothee is a popular Kenyan musician and businesswoman who is known for her outspoken and unfiltered personality. She has been criticized for her lifestyle and how she portrays herself and her three adult daughters, but she has also been praised for her entrepreneurial spirit and her willingness to speak her mind.
In a recent statement, Akothee asked society to let her inspire their children. She argued that even if parents try to shield their children from her, they will eventually find out about her one way or another. She also said that she is a source of inspiration for many people, especially young women who have faced challenges in their lives.
“So before your children download the entertainment and all this nonsense about Akothee on social media as you do, allow them access to Esther Akoth Kokeyo. Give me a chance to walk them through the reality of life’s struggles and challenges.
They will listen to my songs on the radio, see me on your screens and be curious to Google who this Akothee that stops the nation debates using your WiFi is. Some hateful and vengeful words you throw at brand Akothee will descend into your homes.
I have those who love me for how I raise my children. You might think you are hurting me, but you could be hurting your sister, aunties, and mother, who sees something different in me,”
Akothee’s statement is a reminder that there is no one definition of a role model. What matters is that someone’s life story can provide inspiration to others. Akothee may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but she is certainly an inspiration to many.
