Men should pay for holidays? Why Akothee’s vision for relationships doesn’t work anymore

Musician Akothee had some words of wisdom for women and men as far as which gender should provide in relationships.

Writing on her Instagram page, the mother of 5 felt that men should stop being comfortable being broke whilst expecting women to fully support them.

“For you to be considered a man in a woman’s world, you must be in a position to provide solutions. Women are meant to support you. There is no problem if a woman is working and a man is jobless. But there is a big problem when a man is comfortable being broke and expecting his woman to fully support 💪,” came Akothee’s first statement.

“Ladies, don’t holidays feel more romantic when it’s a man’s initiative? Secondly, holidays feel romantic if it’s a man paying for it, or what do you think? If not let’s stay at home eat at home and use that money for our rent or so so so. Women are suffering in men’s hands, 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣,” continued Akothee.

Every woman needs a man hata yule kibogoyo – Akothee tells women

While I understand Akothee’s endgame is to have more responsible men for women to date and marry, I think her sentiment doesn’t reflect the realities on the ground.

With the push of equality for the genders, the modern Kenyan man and woman are allowed similar rights and privileges according to the constitution.

Before feminism, traditional men were expected to fully provide for their traditional wives and children. While the traditional man had the responsibility of steering the ship, it also came with privileges-patriarchy as some would call it.

The traditional woman also gave up some of her freedoms (to the man) for the privilege of having a man take care of her and her kids fully.

Today, we have modern women like Akothee who want traditional men who will only get the responsibility of being a provider but none of the benefits/privileges that the men in the past got.

This goes back to Akothee’s statement about the man paying for a woman’s holidays. Modern women want to have their cake and eat it. When it comes to money, equality goes out the window but in other areas of the relationship, they want equality.

Simply put-Equality when it suits them and privilege when it doesn’t suit them. That’s why many men are becoming very ambivalent about dating, they would rather forgo it altogether or become leaches to the women they are dating.

The modern woman will not reward a traditional provider male like his antecedents. So why even try? “It is a bad deal,” the modern man is saying.

This weekend, the tall and chocolate-skinned woman made a post that left fans concerned about what was going on in her personal life.

The Akothee Safaris CEO revealed that recent events have led her to make three decisions in her life and said that at the moment she would rather keep it to herself before making what is bothering her public.

“I have taken 3 major decisions today. I will one day tell you once the pain is gone. For now, let me keep it to myself🙏God knows my heart is pure and my intentions are right. Happy Sabbath,” she wrote.

Akothee preaches positivity to her daughters after Rue Baby is body shamed

 

Akothee’s daughter Rue Baby hit back after being thin shamed on her Instagram on Sunday June 6.

Through her social media account, she penned

“I wanted to say it saddens me to see fellow women out here so strongly ready to body shame .. but then again I think it’s just funny.

You know not all girls are strong to manage body shaming like I am.

So before you go ahead and body-shame someone thinks if the same words were said to your sister or mother how would you feel.”Rue baby 4

Rue went on saying that,

“The saddest part is that  It bothers you but it doesn’t bother me coz am happy with my body so who is disturbed. Anyway to my fellow girls facing body shaming out there. Just remember these are people who envy you and they don’t know how to say it.

So the best thing is to be negative and make you feel bad about yourself. You need to develop thick skin. Don’t let the words get to you. You are beautiful just the way you are darling.

Have a blessed Sunday guys.” Rue posted

Mum Akothee has been quick to support her daughters by writing a special inspiring message telling them if they are ever overwhelmed by society’s meanness, they reach out to her, no matter what.

She reflected that “All that I have ,You have all built yourselves on your own with discipline and integrity, let no one take that from you ”

Akothee also told them to make sure they discuss their thought with her, as a sounding board. “Whenever you feel down , just know I am still Alive call me for a chart
👉When you get pregnant ,please let me be the first to know ,we shall laugh about it and carry our blessing together
👉If you need a hug ,you know where I am ,and always at home COME.”

She also reminded them about her bold advice on men “To All the men Approaching you ,before you engage in any sexually related things ,please get to the nearest hospital ,have both of you checked for all kinds of
Gonokukus ( you know what I mean ) people are not genuine , ( dhano muonyo nyakwar ma , muonyo ok rach ,kaka iyude ema diloki Neko ) better be safe than sorry 💪”

 

 

I will personally castrate you! Akothee to husbands using her name to scare their wives

Singer Esther Akoth aka Akothee does not play around when it comes to voicing her discontent. The mother of 5 is on the warpath at the moment.

And what’s her reason you might ask? The wealthiest musician in East and Central Africa according to Forbes is unhappy with married men who brag using her name.

In a lengthy post, the “Sweet Love” singer was upset at those people who were giving out her number to strangers in the name of ‘ I know Akothee’.

She explained that she was always protective of her energy and privacy and she’s had it with men flash calling her number in an effort to get her to call back.

“👉I have never understood why people put celebrities on loud speakers just to prove to the rest of their friends that they are in direct contact 🤔 👉Bitches be out hear bragging ,You know I talk to Akothee directly kwani Mimi ni umbwa nikiongea na wewe unashtuka? Don’t you know we are also human beings who needs to interact with normal people at times 🤔. And also stop handing over phones to strangers ,people I don’t know ,ooh ongea na nani anakupenda, so? This kind of phone calls I drop asap. I am not rude ,but I need to guard my energy. 👉Why do you make me talk to strangers just because you have my number ? How do you want me to relate with them by the way ? Don’t you know how difficult it is to strike a conversation with someone you don’t know and you have never met? Tell me .”

Stop sending me your ugly organs! Akothee complains about men sending her n*des

She went on to say that she had reserved rudeness for men who use her number to threaten their wives with leaving them. She added that some men call her just to show off that she is looking to date them.

“👉They will say I am rude . Ooh when it comes to my privacy YES I AM VERY RUDE 🤭 ujinga ndio Mimi 👉And the Men who use my number and contacts to threaten their wives wakinyimwa, hata Mimi sitakupea., Na ukiachwa ujipange 💪 The day your wife will attack me with stupid things,I will expose your family online .If we are just friends ,let her know we are friends period💪If we are in business put it clear it’s business💪.

Watcha ujinga ya kuniflash ,Then when I call back ,You tell her ,look Akothee is Calling ME 🤔🤔. I CALL YOU FOR WHAT ? Hata wanaume wamekuwa wajinga Sana, ati Akothee ananitaka, wewe nikikutaka ,si utatimua hiyo bibi na uhamie Rongo ama white house? This fake life makes life very different. And difficult. My world getting smaller.”

Akothee explained that while she had been wary of female friendships, that she would also start doing the same with the male friends that she has.

“I was afraid of female friends, now I am also contemplating on Male friends. I will start stopping names of all the men bragging with my name’s to their Wives / friends / colleagues .mahali ujinga yenu inaaishia,yangu inaanza hapo. Tumbafu. hii ujinga ya kunitumia kama scarecrow to your wives itakoma. I personally will castrate and Take you IDIOT.”

Every woman needs a man hata yule kibogoyo – Akothee tells women

Akothee is one of the most influential women in the country, not only is she a popular musician, but she is also an entrepreneur.

But that isn’t what impresses me most about her. It’s her social commentary that always gets people talking. She might not always be in the correct but that doesn’t mean she will not fight hard for her right to be heard.

Yep, her opinion will be heard, all others be damned. Her most recent point of view is one case but I must first give some background.

Stop sending me your ugly organs! Akothee complains about men sending her n*des

Weeks ago, the mother of 5 had revealed that she has been trying to get pregnant since January this year.

”Boom it’s been 6 years yawa, if I don’t get another baby in these remaining 4 years, I will quit. Since January I have been trying to get pregnant, but it’s not coming.”

But that statement raised questions as most wondered which man she was trying to get the baby with or was she just bluffing about getting pregnant.

She has now advised women to get themselves a man, to help them in sorting out a few things. She wrote, ”You see, Now electric is back, and I can’t switch on TV to watch hayakuhusu by Akothee on yutube, someone come switch on the tv for me. Naona tu michele. This singleness doesn’t help. Every woman needs a man hata yule kibogoyo.”

Stop sending me your ugly organs! Akothee complains about men sending her n*des

Kenyan musician and entrepreneur Esther Akoth, better known as Akothee will speak her mind, whenever, wherever and to whoever.

The mother of 5 has a bone to pick and it is with a section of the male gender who has been sending her unwanted se*ually perverse images.

The singer complained on her social media page about men sending her photos of their private parts. The 40-year-old hinted that it wasn’t the first time that it was happening.

“It’s better to cry in Dubai” Akothee tells daughter Rue Baby to chase money and not love

The tall dark-skinned lady went hard at the men shunning the behaviour writing, ”Please guys, stop sending me those ‘ugly’ organs in my inbox. It’s disrespectful to just send a 👁👁. I didn’t know men do send nudes too. Eeeeee. I am afraid of reading or opening DMs now, lest I meet dem.”

For the lady who has over 2.7 Million followers, it must be a certain headache for her dealing with the many DM’s she must be getting.

Sexting or sending obscene messages could land you in prison. Christopher Wambua from the Communications Authority of Kenya says sexting is an offense and you can be fined up to 50,000 shillings or be jailed for not more than 3 months.

Also, under Article 28 of The Cyber Security and Protection Bill 2016, a person who is caught sharing n*de photos of others on the Internet will be sentenced to upto 30 years in prison or fined upto Sh300,000 or both.

Upset Akothee reveals HIV status after spread of malicious allegations

Upset Akothee reveals HIV status after spread of malicious allegations

Self-proclaimed President of Single Mothers Esther Akoth aka Akothee doesn’t play around when it comes to defending her reputation.

The mother of 5 has a thick skin and never ever loses online battles, embarrassing all comers. This past weekend was no different as the singer had to deal with some allegations that had cropped up about her, particularly her HIV Status, after fake stories surfaced online alleging that she is positive.

Akothee shared documents capturing her HIV-Negative status, shutting down speculation about her health, also promising to deal with the lady who started the “Bad rumour”.

“Yes, I’m Proving a point, so don’t tell me not to prove. For those interested in my HIV status, what you do with this information is up to you. Sipendi Ujinga yenu. Hiyo HIV ikija kunipata siku moja, juwa nimeletewa nyumbani, ama vile ilivyo pangwa na Mungu, sijui lakini kwa sasa habari ndio hiyo saa hii tulia. I have a full medical checkup every year” said the artiste.

She said that she now understood why most people tend to hide their HIV status from the public. “I have been wondering why public figures who are HIV positive can’t come out clean and embrace the campaign against Stigma / HIV/AIDS.”

Adding, “THEY prefer to play safe and protect themselves other than giving out their lives to ungrateful people. I once asked a friend, why don’t you just go public instead of hiding and people always threatening to reveal your status!? His answer: we we we people are bad, the stigma that comes with it is crazy, people will start running away from you & always use you as an example.”

Adding, “I now understand why people hide their HIV/ARVS status even to the people they are dating, SAD. It’s now obvious for me why men would dump a date day one when you ask them to accompany you to the hospital for an HIV test. This guy will either disappear or never pick your calls. People are living in denial with this thing because of society,” shared Akothee.

The singer is also a successful entrepreneur who has done excellently for herself as she has diversified to other ventures like farming and a tour business that is apart from her music career.

What most don’t know is that while wealth has its advantages, it also comes with a lot of advantages. The musician revealed this truth this weekend when she gave a glimpse of how much she spends maintaining her lavish homes.

My mother begged me to return to my ex-hubbie Jared but I refused – Akothee

Kenyan musician and Entrepreneur Esther Akoth aka Akothee, known for being the ‘president of single mums’ doesn’t fudge when it comes to the truth.

She is one person who can be quite uncompromising when it comes to stating her truth and one can probably attribute this to her having to make adult decisions from the time that she was 15-years-old after she got pregnant.

Akothee who was married to the father of her first 3 daughters would later leave him, saying that her mother wanted her to go back to that specific son-in-law.

While sharing a meal with both of her parents, Akothee says her mum didn’t want her to introduce her to any more men.

” There is nothing that fulfills my heart like seeing my parents happy 🙏. That’s why I bought land and built a home next to them ,so I can take care of them and enjoy my wealth with them 💪,” she wrote.

“My parents give me strength, they are proud to see me happy. It took my mom time to believe I can make it outside marriage, she pleaded with me to go back to my first marriage over time 🤔 she could not allow me introduce her to any man 🤔, she only knew one son in law 🤔, she only dropped this thing when I told her MUM ,even when I am dead ,I will not go back to my Ex and give him my sweet. But we can be friends and keep at as family 💪 We have kids 🙏,she laughed,she stopped worrying about me and now we are great friends, my dad is the opposite, a man of few words, Josi yeye mnunulie simu ,credit na pocket money 😂😂😂.

Akothee is right about single motherhood! The benefits of two-parent homes on children

Akothee is one woman who has blazed a trail in the entertainment industry. Not only has she succeeded in becoming a well-known star in the entertainment industry, but she has also done it as a single mother of 5 kids who isn’t afraid to tackle the tough issues that come with it.

In a recent hot take, Akothee decided to advise women who might be planning to turn away from their marriage. She stated that women should not use the excuse that they want to live like her.

Additionally, the musician claims that life on social media is not what it seems like and it’s very different from reality.

”It has come to my attention that I am misadvising women to walk out of their relationships. The problem is that you don’t understand my English. Please, if you’re married, stay in your marriage. Even our own parents stayed in their own marriages. Being a single mother is not pride, it is a circumstance. And we can’t change anything about that.”

Adding,

“Anyway, we’ve got to be strong to live this life. If you think you want to leave your husband because you think Akothee is living a good life, I will never showcase my frustrations online. You could be living a better life than me. But anyway, the choices are yours. If you want to leave your husband’s house, don’t leave with my name… You do not know what I’m going through off- cameras.”

While there are reasons not to stay in some marriages (like physical abuse and a financially unstable partner), just like Akothee, I have always advocated for people to stick it out in a marriage.

And my reason is simple-Do it for the children. The science is clear on the benefits children have when growing up in two-parent homes. Some are below:

1. Children growing up in homes where two parents who have been married continuously are less likely to experience a wide range of problems (academic, social, emotional, cognitive), not only in childhood but later on in adulthood as well (Amato; Howard & Reeves,).

2. In two-parent families, for example, children typically have access to more of the economic and community resources because parents are able to pool their time, money, and energy.

3. Family intactness has also been shown to have a consistently positive influence on earnings for prime-age males and is one of the most important factors (or shared the place of greatest importance) for females and children in determining an area’s dependence on welfare programs that targets poverty.

4. Family intactness has a beneficial influence on reducing out-of-wedlock births, increasing high school and college graduation rates, and even has long-term benefits such as higher employment rates.

5. Children living with married parents are more often involved in community activities such as soccer or other sports, take part in academic pursuits in local schools and other academic institutions that can lead to college, and eventually, a career.

6. Intact families tend to be more stable; parents tend to be more involved in their children’s lives and are more highly invested in their children’s success.

7. Children living with both biological parents are 20 to 35 percent more physically healthy than children from broken homes (Dawson).

8. A study by Kinard and Reinherz found that children from two-parent homes had higher scores on verbal reasoning than those from single-parent homes.

9. Manning and Lamb found that adolescents in intact families had higher levels of academic achievement and were less likely to exhibit problem behaviors in school compared to peers living in homes where single mothers lived alone or with a cohabiting partner.

My children were accused of being part of the Illuminati-Akothee sadly narrates

Singer Akothee always has a captivating tale to tell on her social media and this week was no different. The mother of 5 who claims to be the richest musician in Kenya has claimed that her fame and money has attracted some vitriol and attacks on her image.

In a long Instagram post Madam Boss explained that when her daughters were in primary school, teachers and students judged them because of their background, saying that it had gotten to the extent of them being accused of being members of the Illuminati.

Forgiveness is power! Lilian Muli shares life lessons Akothee has taught her

All because she visited her kids in a big, black car, full of foodstuffs.

“When my kids were still in primary school, some teachers judged them based on their family background, some fellow students accused them of Illuminati…”

She said the presumption from the people in school had affected her youngest daughter in the biggest way possible, so much so that she had to change schools every other time because she couldn’t handle the pressure.

My last born @fancy_makadia is a quite girl who can’t handle pressure , she is fragile based on the fact that my marriage was dissolved when she was hardly 5 this left a heavy impact on her, I visited several schools to find what her heart required 🤷, she would not say anything but her performance kept deteriorating.

Adding, “We then took her out of ULANDA GIRLS where fellow students and other teachers named her Illuminati and even told other students not to eat from her lunch box🙏🏻.”

She went on to narrate that her daughter’s bullying had gotten so bad that her fellow students were even warned not to eat from her plate.

She explained that cyberbullying is devilish and unacceptable, calling on media personalities and teachers to be cautious of how they handle families because they never know what people go through, behind the scenes.

“To all single mothers/parents, listen to your children. If a child tells you she doesn’t like a certain school or environment, please take note of what she is saying, she could be Receiving pressure from school mates, teachers etc.
