Singer Akothee has been the talk of town after photos of her in concert went viral on social media.
The photos which showed the singer in skimpy dressing pulling moves that KFCB boss Ezekiel Mutua termed as simply dirty stunts have since elicited mixed reactions.
Blogger Robert Alai attacked Akothee calling her a 50 year old pig.
“The 50 year old disgrace which apparently inspires some single mothers. A total disgrace. Complete pig!!!” wrote Alai
Akothee has now responded saying even her parents who are her number one fans also do not appreciate her mode of dressing.
“My daddy is my number one fan , after my mum resisted for years, she finally joined,I thank God for my supportive parents, my mum. Still have issues with my dress code, but this time round she dint utter a word , maybe be she is tired, hataa nyinyi mtachoka tu, sikomi mimi my dad is just living his life , mr dont care as long as music is dancable,all the way from Rongo” she wrote
Kenya Film Classification board C.E.O Ezekiel Mutua has since condemned Akothee’s weekend tactics.
“Kenya has got talent but as long as we keep celebrating this kind of madness, our entertainment industry will never grow. Akothee is talented but the filthy and stupids stunts she has to pull to remain relevant should concern all of us. What’s worse is to see grown up men and women celebrating this scatological obscenity in the name of entertainment. We have lost it as a nation. People like Akothee cannot be the role models for our daughters. Music doesn’t have to be dirty to sell. How I wish artists like Akothee would know how much influence they have on our youths and try to use that influence to produce content that is edifying. This kind is crass, moronic and a theatre of the absurd. It’s demonic to the core and only appeals to debilitating and incorrigible perverts and brainless audiences. Akothee must stop this idiosyncrasy. There’s no dignity in for her or her audience,” he said
