Singer and businesswoman Esther Akoth, popularly known as Akothee has for the first time disclosed why she stopped doing interviews on TV and Radio.
In a post seen by Nairobi Leo, the mother of five said each time she walked into a station, all she felt was emptiness.
She accused presenters in TV and Radio stations of giving her cold and pretentious smiles, yet all they wanted to do was ask about her private life and also her past.
“I stopped doing interviews both on TV and Radios. Some stations I would walk in and just feel so empty, the presenters looked so cold and pretentious, with forced smile on their faces ready to attack my private life and my past,” wrote Akothee.
Madam Boss went on to say she decided to stop granting interviews because she doesn’t want to continue gathering imaginary enemies.
She however noted that the problem is not the stations, but the people working in the stations.
“Reasons you haven’t seen me on tv or heard me on radios is because, I don’t want to continue collecting imaginary enemies. I have enough so ARMS_ LENGTH? There was a presenter who dint believe when I said sorry ,I don’t do interviews anymore ? She said wao ,that’s rude ,I said No that’s True? Pole? To My fellow artists/ musicians, I wish you all the best as you deal with these two sided swords. Mungu awaonekanie jamani
“Problem is not the stations, problem is the people inside the stations. They forget that that’s someone’s investments and take it personal? Sitaki kusema haki , siku hizi nikiona some presenters who asked me for 100k to have my song on rotation. Another one asked me for 100k to trend on twitter hashtags,” said Akothee.
