Days after Akothee stated that hustling lanes have no traffic, her daughter Rue has been nominated for an award by the lavish DEAR Awards to be held in Texas.
The Diaspora Entertainment Awards and Recognition(DEAR) which is in its fourth year, honour individuals and entities for their relentless efforts in furthering the development and unity of our people in the diaspora.
Rue is not only a model but also the face of Nivea, a role she greatly played with pride, inspite of backlash by petty Kenyans who thought that she did not deserve that role.
Akothee took to her Instagram to announce the good news of her daughter being nominated for the awards urging people to vote while reminiscing on how she never thought that her daughter would turn out this good. She wrote
“Waking up to God’s blessings @rue.baby from Rongo to the World , go my baby go , VOTE @rue.baby BEST MODEL OF YEAR @Dearawards , Well , I did your visas before you became a professional model thinking of just travelling with you the World, but now you travelling for good & better reasons , My daughter just do what you are good at doing , you never know who is watching , congratulations on your nominations POWER OF MANIFESTATION”
This seems to be a good year for some Kenyan. Kenyan-born actress Lupita Nyongo is on the list of celebrities to be honored with a star on the Hollywood of Fame.
The high profile activity has been slated for 2019, and also on the list include actor/producer Tyler Perry, Terrence Howard, Guillermo del Toro, Lucy Liu, Cedric the Entertainer and many more.
Wanuri Kahiu the movie director of Rafiki” joins top Hollywood personalities to become members of the movie Academy. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has invited a record number of new members, extending invites to 928 people and Wanuri is among the 928 people invited.
These ladies above are proof that being a woman does not limit you from achieving your dreams rather it pushes you to work harder to prove to the world that women and girls literally run the world.
