Why I quit Gospel music for secular – Akothee

Will she ever go to Church

“Do you know that the church choir would feel empty in my absence? & the day I miss church everyone would know that mama Vesha was not in church today! Do you know why I stopped gospel and went secular? It's because I could not keep up with the hypocrisy, the moment I got divorced, the entire church members I knew, family friends etc, turned their back on me, none of them or their wives wanted to associate with me!” she said.

Akothee added that preachers used the status of her family as examples to preach in church but no one gave her a chance to explain herself.

“Preachers used my family status as an example to preach in church! Gave me all kinds of names because they heard the story from one side! No one wanted to associate with me! Rejection is poisonous, that's why most people mistake my attitude towards life for arrogance,” she added.

“Mimi ni msabato, sijabeba kifunguu ya kanisa yenyu wewe enda church ongea na Mungu wako, hatakuuliza dhambi zangu,” said Akothee.
