Touted as Kenya’s richest female entertainer, Esther Akoth better known as Akothee has officially dwarfed a 2004 show stopper move by rapper Jackson Makini alias Prezzo.

On Saturday, August 31, Akothee took a three-minute chopper ride from Deputy President William Ruto’s Weston Hotel to Carnivore for a soundcheck session in anticipation of yesternight's Luo Festival.

And as Chris Kirwa highlighted, the walking distance destination was not a factor for the flamboyant singer who replicated Prezzo's iconic appearance at the Chaguo La Teeniez Awards when he also took a helicopter from Wilson Airport to Carnivore.

According to photos shared by Akothee, she was chauffeured in and out of the four-star hotel in a white limousine complete with customized plates.

The stretch limo was flanked on both sides by over six bodyguards dressed in black suits who ran alongside it in a tight formation akin to those protecting North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

On hand to receive the serial entrepreneur who owns among others; a tour company, a luxury apartment complex in the North Coast, mansions in Nairobi, Rongo, Mombasa, Switzerland and France as she landed was comedian Jalang’o.

“Being Akothee is a calling! Flying 3 minutes for soundcheck being Jalang’o is a blessing, not every woman can keep up with Jalang’o’s madness like I do! I love you babyna wamoke kawuono!” She posted.

Jalang’o could not hide his excitement either.

"This woman Akothee...wacha tu! The trouble you make me go through...Anyway, let the party begin now! Luo festival tonight!!"
