Akothee on adopted son lying about being an orphan
Singer Akothee disclosed that the son she picked from the streets and adopted as her own Shadrack Mwita lied about being an orphan.
According to her, when they first met, Mwita told her that he had no one to go to, but as soon as he had his artificial leg fixed, his family reappeared and she was under too much pressure.
“Mission Accomplished. ❤❤❤❤Shadrack Mwita has fully recovered now🙏🏾 and can hold and carry heavy things, he can stand on his feet and fend for himself other than begging due to disability👊, he was back in the hospital APDK for 3 weeks ,to have his legs permanently fixed, which has been successfully achieved 🙏🏾 However ,I had to learn how to detach The foundation from interfering with my private life and family life🙏🏾 Shadracks Family reappeared in the picture ,and the pressure was too much for me to handle 🙏🏾.” read part of Akothee’s post.
Madam Boss said that she was shocked when her adopted son said he could not continue living in her palatial home, three days after he returned from hospital, while his family was suffering. He went ahead to ask Akothee to build a house for his grandmother.
Akothee mentioned that at this point, Mwita had become too negative and moody, and this was becoming scary for her.
She then decided to rent out a house for Mwita which she has paid a whole year’s rent as she figure’s out a business that he can do, so that he can take care of his family.
“Moving forward, Shadrack has his own rented house fully paid for a whole year 💪 I am still looking for a business that he can do , so he will help himself and meet his families demands 🙏🏾, He is still under my custody and I make sure he has food and basic needs,
" I can't continue living eating in a palace ,while my family is suffering, , as I promised my family ,that I am going to Mombasa to look for a life ,and once i am successful, I will come and change their lives too So I want mama to go and build for my grandmother a house next week ,says shadrack" 🙏🏾🙏🏾
This was a shock to me, as before this ,he started becoming very negative, Moody and this was scary to me 💪 I didn't know how to handle this , however when I met shadrack ,he told me he had no one 🙏🏾 This was 3 days after we left hospital during lockdown/ carfew 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾 On the 12.6.2020 💪
I was not born to cause pain ,I was born to provide solutions. BRAVO SHADRACK 🙏🏾
what would you do, if you were in my shoes ❤❤” said Akothee.

Ex-Churchill show comedian Paul Wakimani Ogutu sued for Ayeiya’s death, family demands Sh21 Million
Comedian Paul ‘Wakimani’ Ogutu has for the first time opened up on being sued for allegedly causing the death of fellow comedian Ayeiya who passed on in 2017 following a grisly road accident.
According to Ogutu, Ayeiya’s wife accused him of causing the death of their loved one, and are demanding a Sh21 million compensation.
Ogutu was the one on the steering wheel the day Ayeiya died. Others who were in the same car were actor Maina Olwenya and Ayeiya’s wife.
“After Kuzika Ayeiya we came back to Nairobi, and when we came back to Nairobi I thought that everyone understood that it was an accident kama Kawaida. So after a week or two, the wife (Ayeiya’s Wife) called me akaniambia ako na Barua yangu, so nikasema niko na shughuli kidogo nikimaliza I will come. That day sikuweza kukutana na yeye, then I met her on the second day. On that second day she was serving me a court order.
"A court order that I am supposed to pay for killing her husband. It’s not a lie what Zeddy said, ati nadaiwa Sh21 million and it’s not a lie what the bloggers said ati nadaiwa pesa by the family. The family has been constant, mimi nimejaribu sana vitu ziwork between me and the family,” said Paul Wakimani Ogutu in part.
“Wakili alinipigia simu akaniambia kuna barua yako imefika hapa na inasema Ayeiya was earning Sh300K a month. So since Ayeiya was earning Sh300K every month and he died at 31, when he is retiring, he is supposed to retire at the age of 55, so they did the math of 300K multiplied by 12 and the remaining years before he hits 55 years. Na ukiangalia court charges unaona ni lazima pia na shughulikia damages, so roughly it was heading to around Sh20.
Which I will say here right now the cases in Court I cannot talk about the case but I can share what I have received. So I am in court that is also what made me to go into depression. Case iko court ni Corona tu imesimamisha.
I don’t know if I should say the truth or what should I do but right now, ndio tulipata accident, but on the day that we unfortunately lost him ndo alikuwa amerudi Churchill show. There is a point alikuwa amebreak, so it is very wrong kwa the person who was in the car (Ayeiya’s Wife) to accuse me of that. Its Ayeiya who called me to go pick him, I was coming from my own show Ngong road, and at some point I will retrieve all those phones calls because my fans don’t have to see me as a person who can sacrifice a friend. That was a friend and that’s why ever since then nimefall out, but I hope that I will be back,” said Paul Ogutu.
