Kenyan musician and businesswoman Akothee took to her social media platforms to extend heartfelt congratulations to Eng Evanda Ochieng Onyango, affectionately referred to as her "son."

Akothee congratulated him on his graduation, expressing that she was proud of his achievement.

“Standing ovation for my son Eng Evanda Ochieng Onyango. I call him baba. My son in life you have only two things, reasons or results. Results are what you get when you put on hard work. Reason is what you cultivate when you blame everyone for everything until you have yourself to blame,” she said.

Despite Evanda not being her biological child, Akothee's endearing term "son" reflects the close bond they share.

Akothee praised him for his determination to succeed in spite of his background and commended his strong work ethic and self-driven approach to success.

“Some children blame all their failures on their parents, schools they attended, teachers, environment and countless reasons. I have watched you hustle in this Nairobi, collecting your own network and that has built who you are,” she added.

Akothee recently celebrated the graduation of three of her children, who have successfully completed their university studies.
