The list of influential personalities throwing their weight behind Kenya’s richest female singer Akothee is growing by the minute.

The latest big act to be drawn into the controversy that surrounded Akothee’s performance last weekend is media personality Caroline Mutoko.

Through her YouTube channel, Mutoko said that Akothee should not be distracted and keep doing what she does best.

“There are a lot of closet men and women who cannot get over her boldness. She’s the kind of chic you love to hate but you can’t help but admire her because she is unapologetic. 

 “Akothee, keep doing what you do. I love your style on Instagram. Baby, I don’t know any of your music and I haven’t been to any of your concerts and here’s the thing because I can’t sing along to any, I might never come. But if you ever ask me out to tea, I’ll come. Keep going mama, I love you to death,” said Mutoko.

Weighing in on entertainment where adults choose to patronize, the iron lady of Kenyan politics, Martha Karua via a tweet stated that those vexed by such performances should direct their anger at the owners of such joints.

 "Nobody is forced to watch, these are adult shows by an entertainer. Direct your anger at the club owner not the entertainer," posted Karua.

Nairobi Women representative Esther Passaris had her day last week too.

In a no holds barred interview with KTN’s Michael Gitonga, Passaris opined that Akothee’s performance at the luxurious Italian Papa Remo beach was in front of a grown audience which included her parents.

“Her father and her mother were on stage, very proud of their little girl. That is entertainment, that’s her profession and business,” before demanding an apology from KFCB boss Ezekiel Mutua.

“I think Ezekiel you owe her an apology because you insulted her and called her demonic. You know she has a following and she didn’t do it in a school compound or for underage children. I think you are overstepping you boundaries in trying to tell us how we should live, be, think, see and behave,” said Passaris.
