Akothee was named this year’s East African best female artiste by the Afrimma awards. She trounced other big names in the category, the likes of Victoria Kimani and Vanessa Mdee to clinch the award.
Her fans were ecstatic.
They congratulated her and said, despite the “panties” saga, her true fans came through and voted for her. Akothee posted her acceptance speech on social media.
Here are some comments from #TeamAkothee.

Eric Ochieng Magz Geovanni wrote, “#Congratulations. Victoria Kimani ni wetu pia she has hits and videos Kali but hypocrisy from us Kenyans tuwache..let’s support our local artists sio tuu when we want to prove a point or because we are hating on another artist..Kenya has lots of talent but tunaringa we can’t support our own ati hawatoshi mboga..Victoria Kimani has been begging for votes kutoka from way back in many awards mpaka akachoka..she even wonders whether Kenyans really appreciate her putting the country on the map..So for Akothee to win this one just shows it was not easy …building a brand and loyal followers is key.Congratulations to Sauti Sol for best group. If Kenyans just vote like they do comment we will be scooping all the awards.”
