Kenyan Singer Akothee's Fans Startled By Her Dance Moves

The controversial singer has never missed a chance to leave a mark on everyone who shows up to watch her perform. During a music concert, Akothee stepped out in a tight-fitting bodysuit and threw her legs in air. Kenyans took to social media to troll the singer for what they deemed to be sexually explicit performance, but some were not impressed with their comments.

Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris on Thursday came to the defence of musician Akothee over her recent raunchy performance in Watamu, Malindi county.

Thursday came to the defence of musician Akothee over her recent raunchy performance in Watamu, Malindi county.

Akothee was roundly condemned on social media for her theatrics on stage at the Abebo Music Festival last week.

Her lewd gestures included throwing her legs wide open, with two of her dancers holding each apart as those in the audience took pictures. She was also be pictured with her derriere facing the crowd.

But according Passaris, Akothee has no duty teaching Kenyan children about morality, adding that the musician inspires a lot of people in different ways.

Ms Passaris was a guest KTN's morning show on Thursday together with Kenya Classification Board chief executive Ezekiel Mutua, one of Akothee's vocal critics.

Kenyans took to social media to troll the artiste for what they deemed to be a lewd and sexually explicit performance.

However, In her social media accounts, the singer was defiant and seemed to suggest more is yet to come.

Here is what Kenyans had to say.

"Kenya has talent but the madness of this woman, Akothee, cannot be celebrated. We may say there is "freedom of expression" but I think this is to the extreme," said Juma G on Twitter.

Kenya Film and Classification Board chairperson Mr Ezekiel Mutua weighed in, saying; "Kenya has got talent but as long as we keep celebrating this kind of madness, our entertainment industry will never grow.

Akothee is talented but the filthy and stupid stunts she has to pull to remain relevant should concern all of us," said the moral cop.

He added, "People like Akothee cannot be the role models for our daughters. Music doesn't have to be dirty to sell. How I wish artists like Akothee would know how much influence they have on our youths and try to use that influence to produce content that is edifying."

"This kind is crass, moronic and a theatre of the absurd. It's demonic to the core and only appeals to debilitating and incorrigible perverts and brainless audiences. Akothee must stop this idiosyncrasy. There's no dignity in this crap either for her or even her audience."

Kelvin qybets quipped; "Where did the rain started biting us. Akothee doesn't understand what she is. Let me tell her you are just a corktail, bunch of thoughts and experience extracted from evil minded people.

Being a species if somebody's science is the worse thing ever . She is just a disgrace"

Controversial blogger Robert Alai also trolled Akothee. "The 50 year old disgrace which apparently inspires some single mothers. A total disgrace." .

However, there are those who came to Akothee's defence.

"Let those who disparage Akothee not attend her shows or watch her videos. Let her do what she likes. It's her life," said Heny B.

Miguna Mikono was of a different view. He blamed Kenyans for celebrating mediocrity.

"Akothee does not have a PROBLEM. The real problem is that Kenyans celebrate MEDIOCRITY. If we stop celebrating mediocrity, artists will naturally EVOLVE. Look, this is a country where speaking like KIBAKI is considered an exceptional talent in COMEDY, thats how MEDIOCRE we are" posted Mikono.

My view: It is baffling that the same people criticizing Akothee, praise foreign superstars like Beyonce, Rihanna, Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, Little Mix and even Nigerian star Tiwa Savage, when they all do raunchy dance moves. If you don't like her show then don't encourage your teenage kids to attend her concert, she's not a morality police officer.
