Dan Aceda, who is well celebrated for his music prowess, had this to say

“So a person went and put herself on a stage in Wembley (the real one).At one of the biggest African music concerts there is right now. That person was only the second Kenyan (as far as I know) to play on that stage and the only one this year. It’s a person who has built herself. She has collabos with the two top Male artistes in AFRICA. The only artiste of this generation that can say that right now. Those two videos have approximately 10M views. On that night she was sharing the stage with some of Africa’s biggest names.

“Now anybody who know anything about performance knows how difficult it is to resonate with a foreign audience. It takes work, A lot of hard work. That’s why what Akothee achieved was so impressive. She was not playing to an audience that know a lot about her and they were going wild. She was introducing herself and she got them to buy in THAT much! Congratulations Madam President!”

The talented Aceda goes on to point out on how we celebrate when one is down rather than try help them up .He has performed on many stages including international platforms thus he understands what musicians go through in foreign countries.

“Usually when somebody doesn’t like something they just ignore it. But Michael Okwiri and other distinguished well educated guys like him, went out of their way to find the least flattering picture to share and to ridicule somebody else’s achievement.

They could have ignored it if they didn’t like it. But no. Find the worst picture post that and share everywhere. Do the best you can to delete somebody’s win. Even though there’s no way that win would have diminished you.

This is the type of malicious uncultured shit that education and good manners is supposed to delete from us.

If you were a part of that stupidity SHAME ON YOU! …. BE BETTER TOMORROW!

Thank you Akothee for reminding us that we can always reach for the stars!
