Singer Akothee

Self-Proclaimed President of Single Mothers Esther Akoth aka Akohee is elated after appearing on the list of top 30 Richest Musicians in Africa, purportedly curated by Forbes Africa.

In a post seen by Pulse Live, the Abebo Hit-maker noted that despite her name appearing on the list, a section of Kenyans will still go ahead to speculate that she bribed to be featured.

On the list, the singer has been named number 15 with her Net worth estimated to be $10 Million.
