Musician Akothee has announced that she is seriously considering jumping in to gospel industry.
Akothee who recently released her first gospel song dubbed ‘Baraka’ featuring Linex, has given reasons why she might actually end up ditching secular music.
According to her, gospel industry is quite easy compared to secular since she believes the industry is full of back stabbers and now it’s every man for themselves.
This music industry is a mess, it is messy, noisy with casualties and victims. Said Akothee at an event in K.I.C.C on Wednesday evening.
I am saying this because you are talking to someone today and you don’t know whether they are your enemy or your supporter. We don’t have cheer leaders in this industry we have killers of talents and it is very painful.
Akothee stated that her biggest pain is that Kenyans at large, have forgotten to cheer and applause their own artists and instead wholeheartedly consuming anything that comes in.
She says that gospel artists have it easy since they don’t struggle for applause when performing in churches and for that, she is ready to join the bandwagon.
What pains me most is that we have forgotten to applause and cheer our artists and we embrace what is coming from out there. A song which is a flop in other countries is a hit in Kenya.
I applause gospel artists because you don’t need to applause for yourself because everyone needs Jesus so Church is already full.
That is why I want to jump onto gospel because it is easy for me. Everyone needs Jesus! She added amid applause.
Recently, madam boss shocked many when she revealed that she has decided to give her life to Christ and interestingly, she actually prays naked.
I am a God-fearing woman and I actually pray naked.
From the time I came from Turkana, I got saved and that is why you have been seeing me do gospel every morning.
I am not changing my dress-code because I came out of my mother’s womb naked.My daddy is my number one fan after my mum resisted for years, she finally joined.
I thank God for my supportive parents.
