Media personality Caroline Mutoko has weighed in on the Akothee debate and questioned why there is even a conversation about the singer in the first place.
On an episode on her YouTube channel released on Thursday, Mutoko said,
“There are a lot of closet men and women who cannot get over her boldness.
She’s the kind of chic you love to hate but you can’t help but admire her because she is unapologetic. “
Mutoko said Akothee’s target market is not everyone, adding that Akothee has never marketed herself as a musician who writes music for children so people should not bash her.
“People follow her because they love her boldness on Instagram I mean, I do too. Sometimes, she says something and I’m like ‘I love you’. “
On critics saying Akothee is not a role model, Mutoko asked:
“Who are your children that they listen to Akothee… You need to check yourself first. “
Mutoko said it is parents’ responsibility to raise their children well. She said,
“If you don’t agree with who she is or what she does, your job is to point her out and say ‘huyu anafanya bad manners’ (she is doing the wrong thing) and this is not a woman you want to be like.”
Mutoko signed off by saying,
“Akothee, keep doing what you do I love your style on Instagram Baby, I don’t know any of your music.
I haven’t been to any of your concerts and here’s the thing because I can’t sing along to any, I might never come. But if you ever ask me out to tea, I’ll come. keep going mama, I love you to death.”
