Kenyan singer Esther Akoth aka Akothee has pointed out that in Kenya celebrities are celebrated more when they are dead, compared to when they are alive.
In a long post, the mother of five said that when her time on earth is over, nobody should attend her funeral expecting special treatment or try to show that they were her supporters.
Akothee stated that she has already instructed her family on what should be done when she dies and no one should come to frustrate her family for whatever reason.
She mentioned that we all die eventually noting that she would rather have only fans attend her funeral and a few celebrities who have been support her projects.
Here’s what she said;
“A CELEBRITY IS CELEBRATED MORE WHEN DEAD! THAN ALIVE ,SAD😭😭😭 Let nobody come to my funeral expecting special services, You never paid for a VVIP nor showed up on my concerts ,and When I am dead ,now you want to be recognized as one of Akothees supporters, IDIOT . DONT COME. I have instructed my family that, In an event that I die before them, my body will be viewed at rakwaro primary school, so my loyal fans can see me 🙏🏾 it has a huge space, None of my Exes will fight over my body, it’s all sorted .
