The manager stated that Akothee did not show any signs of sickness, but had mentioned that she was a little tired, and went ahead to run her set, before collapsing after losing her breath.
“She had actually run her set for 45 minutes and it was during the last 30 seconds of the last song that the unfortunate incident happened. She had lost lots of breath because of the up and down activity. So that’s what forced her to faint but the good news is we got her to the car and we didn’t have to go all the way to the hospital because she recovered slowly and we gave her vitamins and juice and she was back to normal,” said Nelson,
He added that doctors had recommended a two weeks bed rest for Madam Boss, and she would do it at her Rongo Spa home.
“She has been recommended bed rest and she is headed to her home in Rongo where she is going to rest for at least two weeks,” said Oaks.
