From exorbitant rides to palatial homes, you name it, she has accumulate all and she’s not bragging about it. In fact, Akothee admonishes her fellow artists not to live a fake lifestyle to show fans that they’re doing well.

The mother of five is an epitome of grass to grace. While she was a teenager, Akothee already had children. And she tarmacked for a couple of years before her breakthrough.

Last year, she was among the business moguls named among the richest in Africa. She was also featured in a recent research that named her among the richest in East Africa. But she’s not contented with the list.

According to her, being rich is not her cup of tea. She declined being rich, and claimed she’s wealthy.

”Sasa nani ameniweka kwa hii list ? ????????????????????????????????????
