Akothee’s wise words to girls : Don’t have many babies like me

Musician Akothee has many positives in her life that she would want young girls who look up to her to draw from.

But she also has had bad experiences she wouldn’t want them to copy. Top among them is the decision to have many children.

The musician has five children from different relationships. The first one was born after she dropped from primary school at to get married.

In a candid interview, Akothee confessed that she conceived all her children in circumstances that she would not wish to see other young girls go through.


“My life is just dramatic, I have mzungu babies and African babies in my home. However I am not encouraging young girls to go and get many babies. I have to accept things as they are and be proud of my situation but don’t use me as an excuse to be irresponsible, be smart,” she said.

The musician further narrated how her expensive celebrity life sometimes sees her being protected by close to 20 bodyguards.

“Celebrity life is tough. I have to drive in big cars and with an entourage. I have like a total of 20 bodyguards but I deploy them according to my needs. When I am making public appearances obviously I need more.”

Akothe said she does not depend on music alone for survival. She has interests in farming, travel and tours (Akothee Safaris) and a three-star hotel Morning Star in Diani which finance her flashy lifesytle.
