Akothee was all smiles after being pleasantly surprised by some of her fans who showed up at the airport to welcome her back from her trip.

The fans braved the morning cold as they pitched camp at the Jomo Kenyatta Internation Airport in Nairobi as early as 6 am. They treated the musician to a Heroe’s welcome as she landed with her recent award in hand.

Akothee was one of the winners as Kenya won big at the Afrika Muzik Magazine Awards held in Texas, USA a few weeks ago. She scooped the Best Female Artist in East Africa Award before travelling to Dubai to perform at the One Africa Music Fest.

On Tuesday, she shared her award with her fans and took to social media to express her gratitude.

“That was 6.00 am in the morning, my heartbeats left their warm beds to come welcome me back ❤❤❤, thank you soo much, 😭😭😭😭😭 I didn’t see this coming, I thought I would be on the low, I crip in like a thief. BEST FEMALE EAST AFRICA.I left with a box of Peptang juice and tomato sauce 🌶 I came back with victory,” she wrote.
