Akothee reveals reason behind Ng'iya Girls talent show cancellation

Kenyan singer Akothee

Popular singer Esther Akoth, popularly referred to as Akothee, has shed light on the circumstances that led to the abrupt cancellation of her invitation to headline a talent show at Ng’iya Girls.

In a lengthy Instagram post on August 7, the mother of five expressed her surprise and disappointment after receiving a message from the school administration informing her of the event’s cancellation.

According to the communication Akothee received, the talent show was cancelled after the school and the local ACK (Anglican Church of Kenya) diocese in the area failed to come to an agreement.

“We have new developments in Ng'iya girls, We shall have to cancel the event because the ACK Bishop of the area is not comfortable with our presence. They even went to the school an were very hard on the principal,” the message read.

Akothee took the opportunity to extend her gratitude to the school’s principal, for extending the invitation and promised to continue supporting her and the school in the future.

"I pray that your new development of having a foundation within the school will uplift a lot of souls. I really appreciate the love and faith you have for me.

"I will still support any course that will leave a positive impact on our society. I will still support where I can, even from where I am standing. May God bless you," she wrote.

Addressing the concerns raised by some online users who alleged that her absence at the event was due to objections from a section of the school’s alumni, Akothee expressed understanding and respect for their opinions.

However, she clarified that the cancellation was primarily attributed to the disagreement between the school and the local church authority.

The post garnered significant attention and engagement from her fans, with many expressing their support and congratulating her on the opportunity.

The post also stirred controversy, with some social media users voicing their disagreement, claiming that her presence would not be appropriate for the girls.
