This is staggering amount that will cost you to do a collabo with Akothee

Kenyan richest singer, Akothee, has revealed that she charges artists a sum of seven figures to do a collabo with her.

 

Three years ago, Akothee was a typical artist struggling to make it to limelight. She had songs that not so many people knew about.

Her exorbitant lifestyle attracted the curiosity of Kenyans and all over sudden everybody seems to notice the slightest movement she makes.

Akothee cruises in a range of posh vehicles including Range Rover, Toyota Landcruisers, Mercedes convertible among other posh brands.

The songbird also owns palatial houses in Switzerland, Mombasa, Nairobi and at her rural home in Migori County.

It was until early this year that Akothee’s music received a new lease on life; this was after she did a collabo with Diamond and Flavour.

Her song with Diamond ‘Sweet Love’ has over 2.9 million views on YouTube in less a year, while ‘Give It To Me’ featuring Flavour has garnered over 1.5 million views in 7 months.

Akothee paid Diamond Kes 1.5 million to do a collabo with him. And now the songbird is also charging artists who want to work with her.

Speaking with Mzazi Willy Tuva on Radio Citizen, Akothee revealed she charges artists Kes 1 million to be a collabo with them.

“As artists, we don’t have to rush into signing deals with record labels, we can make our own money using social media. Don’t settle for less. As for me don’t call if you can’t afford to raise one million shillings for a collabo.”Akothee disclosed.

Funny the singer is yet to work with any local artist for a major music project. But the last song she did solo ‘Yuko Moyoni’ has over 450k views in just three months. So judging from her success, Akothee is right to demand 1 million for a collabo.
