I don't like sympathy- Akothee

Yesterday, the Singer and businesswoman blasted Radio Jambo for referring her with the word Maskini.

The station ran a story on their blog about how the singer was mistreated in the United States, something that made her arrive late for a show. They then said that poor Akothee (Maskini Akothee) was forced to apologize to her fans for getting late.

The mother five, did not take the words lightly saying that there are names she doesn't like being associated to.


She went on to say that she hates to be sympathized with, and instead prefers to be encouraged. Akothee called out the station insisting that encouragement and congratulations are better than sympathy.

Maskini inatoka wapi sasa @radiojambokenya, na ile Best female Artist award Muliona kweli mkanipongeza kabla kunihurumia mimi na mafans. Kenya nimehama?

Mistreated in US

Earlier this week, the self-proclaimed President of Single Mothers revealed details of the mistreatment she was subjected to, while in the US for a performance.


In a lengthy public outcry, Madam Boss lamented how a lady identified as Sarah Ondiko frustrated her, with flights cancelled, unpaid hotel bills to shifting performance venues last minute.

According to the Rollam maker, she had been invited to stage a performance in Minneapolis with the aim of raising money to promote and support her foundation (Akothee Foundation)

She also disclosed that her manager was left stranded in the middle of night, after being dropped off by the road side with no transport back to his hotel room.
