Singer Akothee has sent a daring message to Kenyan artistes following the recent fight between them and the media.

In a long post on Instagram, the mother of five said that she has kept her relationships to be where she is musically.

I kept my relationships to get here – Akothee to Kenyan artistes

She narrated how she knew nothing about airplay when she released her first song and how she organized shows with a few DJs she knew, back in 2014.

When I released my second single Pashe I met @mzaziwillytuva in Rongo when he had come for Mseto East Africa in Rongo university, I played the song for him and he was like when you come to nairobi make sure you come to club Tribeka, so we clicked from there, the only presenter I knew was @mzaziwillytuva, I was very ambitious, so I asked him to organize for me a media tour in tanzania, and because I didn't have a manager I asked him to come with me, then I did my first media tour with only 2 songs in Tanzania,” said Akothee.

She went on to say that Tanzanian media treated her well after she was introduced by Mzazi Willy M Tuva, and she has since maintained a good relationship with them and many other media personalities she has been introduced to since then.

East Africa Tv, @skytanzania and @djtass treated me well, climbing the ladder I kept relationship with everyone I was introduced too by @mzaziwillytuva , he invited me to campus tour which made me realise my potential, then @a_opondo introduced me to @jalangoo heavy jakababa , who now introduced me to the kisumu pipo my kinsmen, jalango then introduced me to @radiomaisha, and all his friends and workmates @alex_mwakideu@djwesly@dj212 @mwendemacharia @clemo ,I only get introduced once and I take the heed to keep the relationship and contacts with people I need, jalango then introduced me to @shaffie & @adelleonyango on radio Africa, thats where I met @mainawakageni@ghost and @gidigidi , I also have kiss tv with @kiptoo and djdan having supported me equally,


In Mombasa I have always kept relationship with @chris001ke @presente01 , baraka fm,pwani fm, I have heard @djjoemfalme play my music on his concerts and we clicked when I met him at Luo festival in 2015, well if you read carefully , you will understand that through the ladder the only thing that has worked for me is keeping relationships, no one will think of you if you don’t think of them, I came into the industry and I found the disease of play Kenyan music play Kenyan music , I found DJs fighting with artists and this has never stopped, so I push my music personally, then came the great @willisraburu with his 10/10 baaaas hapo ndio ikauwaaaaaa, most of my fans in diaspora found out about me @mwalimchurchill on YouTube,” read another part of Akothee’s long post.
