Chopper, 40 towels: Akothee's crazy demands ahead of Luo Festival perfomance


Kenyan singer, Esther Akoth, popularly known as Akothee will be performing at the annual Luo Festival set to take place on 31, August 2019 at the Carnivore Grounds, Nairobi.

Getting the singer to agree to perform, leave alone attend the event was a big hustle. This is according to comedian Jalang’o who says it was close to impossible to have her attend.

According to the radio presenter-cum-entrepreneur, he could not confirm Akothee’s attendance to the festival until he had a sit down with her due to the crazy demands she had made.

“I could not confirm @akotheekenya for Luo Festival because of alot of things but that was until yesterday when we met and she agreed that she will be performing! To have Akothee for your show is not easy and even her coming for Luo festival is almost impossible!”He said.

Akothee’s list

Taking to Instagram page, Jalang’o posted a picture alongside Akothee with a caption of the demands the singer wants met before, during and after the festival.

Here is a list of things Akothee needs for the festival:

1. Akothee logistics is crazy...apart from your security she has her own security who must ensure that everything is fine...that is 10 security team! 5 men 5 women!


2. Akothee flies to Luo Festival from Wilson to Carnivore! Don’t forget that Wilson and Carnivore share fences! She just does not come! She makes an entrance! Helicopter costs 200k from Wilson to Carnivore! Thanks to @silverstoneairservices this cost has been taken by them!

3. Akothee has her own backstage...changing room four full length mirrors, 4 lounge seats , 5 cases of still water , 5 cases of sparkling water, 40 white towels, private bathroom and toilet, private live Kitchen and private chef, assorted juices of different flavours that must be Orchid Valley , 10 flower bouquets, a massage table and 4 private assistants!

4. Since the show ends in the night you must organise a limousine to take her to her hotel since when she is performing she doesn't stay at home but prefers the privacy of presidential suite!

A few netizens have been left dumbfounded, terming the singers demands as ‘out of this word’. Well nothing is ‘out of this world’ for madam boss.

This was made clear in her recent Insta story, where the mother of five flaunted her luxurious presidential suite in readiness for the event.
