‘We over pay international acts and undermine our own!’ Akothee speaks out

Singer Akothee popularly known as madame president has an interesting suggestion when it comes to helping promote Kenyan music.

She was part of the panel on Saturday’s 10 over 10 show alongside DJ Pierra and Kagiri. The women were talking about the impact each has made in their various roles in the Kenyan music industry.

Akothee spoke about it last week in a picture where she is seen holding a stick, letting presenters know that she will make sure they play Kenyan music by fire, by force.

mi I want to go physical with this presenters, so we finish quickly you pipo are making too much noise online 🤣😂 tag them here pris

Just after the show, Akothee took to social media to share her views on artiste fees paid to international vs Kenyan artistes get when they go to other countries.

Lets just play our own music, invite our own artists to our own shows , because these fans are our own fans, nobody will give us a platform even to curtain raise in other countries , we over hype the neighbouring countries! Over pay them and they go spend the money in their countries,and underpay our artists

Akothee’s solution is simple, before or after the international acts perform, they should dedicate some of their pay to charity.

we also demand that when international act comes for a show in kenya, let some percentage go to charity , let them visit school’s ,hospitals, orphanages, not only club appearances 😋😋 a bottle of hernesy is a whole year school fee for some needy ,(now you know why I cant join politics , they will kill me after 2 weeks , coz I will expose them all 😂❤


Do you think this will work?
