Akothee Blasts Stalkers Posing As Donors For Her Foundation

May 15, 2020

Philanthropist and celebrity musician Akothee has revealed some of the frustrations she has been facing regarding her self-titled foundation.

The singer launched Akothee Foundation in September last year to help the less fortunate in society, but the charity project has since become a hotbed for dishonest donors to take advantage of the singer.

While venting her disappointment on social media, Akothee said people have been taking advantage of the fact that she is the one running the foundation.

In a long post, Akothee said a number of cooperates who had invited her to their offices for possible partnerships have since left her high and dry.

“The foundation has made the brand very vulnerable, and people taking advantage of the fact that it’s Akothee running behind it , Some cooperates have invited me to their offices , promised huge contributions and after getting direct contacts with me, photos, thats the end ? when I follow up on what they promised, it’s water under the bridge, & I look like a bother ? God is seing you?” she wrote.

Akothee also slammed some of her fans whom she claimed insist on talking to her before making a contribution to the foundation.

“Some fans insist to talk to me first before they contribute, I wonder why they feel so special and that I AKOTHEE must talk to them before they send their contributions. That’s why they get into the trap of one CON MAN/ WOMAN, ESTHER ANYANGO??? what makes them different from those who just see the paybill 205024 and do the necessary? The spirit of entitlement is overwhelming in the society,” she posted.

The mother of five added that she also has stalkers, with one identified only as Sam allegedly going to the singer’s home four times.

“I have people stalking me in the name of they want to contribute to the foundation. Even coming to my doorstep. One SAM came almost 4 times saying he has 50,000 pounds, He follows my life on Instagram stories… he was given the bank details and office address, the police called him so they could go and collect the contribution he had, he then switched off his phone ? . But he insisted on coming to my home, saying we met at golf, he knows me for a long time, we were friends. I sincerely don’t know this annoying person. I almost got him arrested for stalking me,” narrated Akothee.

The singer also blasted people who volunteer to work for the foundation then demand to be paid.

“I have people who come to work as volunteers for the foundation, after they are not able to deliver, and I release them, they start asking for monthly salary, even if they just carried one carton of tissue,” she said.

Despite all the frustrations, Akothee vowed to remain steadfast in her charity work which she said is a calling.

“Above all, I would like to tell you that, it looks easy on cameras, but at times I even go to bed without food for being exhausted, I don’t want anyone to sympathise with me, for me charity is a calling, no one has forced me into it, I have my fulfilment when I create change, and make someone smile. For those who wish to tarnish the name of the foundation, just know that this foundation is a unique one, it’s guided by the spirit of God, and there is totally nothing you can do other than making noise for your own fulfilment, gossip is cheap and available, its mainly done with bitter people,” Akothee said.
