Akothee exposes her live-in relatives for their ‘bad behaviour’

Singer Akothee has aired her family’s dirty linen in public by going ham on some of her relatives for their ‘bad behaviour’.

In two lengthy posts on social media, the singer lamented how she recently missed a performance in New York after falling ill due to stress form her relatives.

In the posts, Akothee narrates how trying to help a few family members has cost her a lot after they started being rude and even vandalizing her house.

“It’s not the platform to share my pain, but it’s also good to share some life experiences, it has taken me 5 years of tooth and nail to develop my retirement home, I promised myself never to live with relatives after so many disappointments, but hey I am human too, so 3 years ago, I decided to live with one of my cousins and a son of my neighbour whom I educated without any difficulty of school fee!” she narrates.

According to Akothee, although the two beneficiaries did not do well in school she was still ready to help them in any other way she could. However, things changed after she left them to take care of the house.


“So left them to take care of my home! They grew lazy and instead gave the employees hard time! Dictating them, claiming the wealth is from their sister! Some employees left, and the security guards were not allowed to utter a word (relatives) so they dint allow the employees perform their duties or report to me any challenges! They played like they have reported everything and I am aware.

“Every morning I called his phone was never answered neither did he call me back, sent several text to know how my home is doing! Even asked for photos! All I heard was everything is fine! The two of them sold my 30 chicken, extra beddings from the employees, vandalized all the electrical wires connecting the garden lights living the whole home in darkness! The pool went to zero and turned into a frog pond. My milk was rejected from Rongo Dairy because they divided the milk and added water on their way.”

Akothee ends the post by recounting how she been hospitalized following harsh comments made by her relatives about her.
