No Politics For Me -Akothee

Singer Akothee, unlike many other celebrities, isn’t itching to join politics and play the dirty game.

Kenyans celebs have always put politics as their next move in life once they feel they have accomplished enough in their entertainment careers.

From comedian John Kiarie, singer Jaguar, Walter Mong’are to kris Darling recently, most have ran to politics as a safe heaven.

But not Akothee. It’s not her tuff.

“I don’t want to go broke,” said the singer who has just received a KSh 1.8 million check following her performance at a private party in Kilifi County for Italian tycoon Bruno Mossimo as he turned 60.

“I’m also not going to change my lifestyle to fit into the society, and I don’t want to be anyone’s role model. I have one life to live and will live it the way I want.”

Instead of politics, the singer will focus on Charity. In the interview with The Star, the Akothee further revealed that charity has been keeping her away from music but hopes when things calm down, she’ll get a chance to go back to the studio.

“I want to sink six boreholes in the drought-affected areas in Turkana. I have gotten a few sponsors and by December, I’m hoping to sink three. I’m very proud of my Italian community for supporting me,” she said.

In August, Akothee awed Kenyans with her heartful effort to alleviate the suffering of people ravaged by drought in Turkana County.

Through her Akothee Foundation in Turkana, she visited the county to donate food to the starving people.
