For the umpteenth time, celebrity singer Akothee has a bone to pick with bloggers in Kenya.
The popular businesswoman on Monday sent out a scathing warning to bloggers, indicating she would sue those that tarnish her name.
Akothee lamented that bloggers usually sensationalize events in her life rather than promote her business.
“Gone are days when blogs built brands and names, nowadays we only have bitter lost generations behind keyboards chasing following, clouts to earn a living. They will stop at nothing and careless of the damage it will cost. All they want is comments, likes and followers. Blogs are equally fighting for followers and to get endorsements, therefore they will use your name, and brand image to get insites to approach clients,” she wrote in a post titled ‘BLOGGERS ARE PACKAGED KEYBOARD WORRIES AND CYBER BULLYS’.
Akothee mentioned that she once turned down an interview with an unnamed blog because they wanted to talk about her life.
“Most of Kenyan bloggers are beggars per ser, poor at heart and bitter broke. They will ignore your good deeds, your achievements and only look at how they can bring you down. It fulfills their emptiness. I once refused to go for an interview with a certain blog, when they said they wanted me to talk about my life, to inspire people, ” “me Inspire people 🤣🤣 with 3 baby daddies & broken relationships?” And I told them I will come and talk about my business and my music career, that was the End of our engagement 🤣🤣🤣, they never post my shit and I equally don’t miss them. I am a blogger myself .and I only blog about my life because I have one. All bloggers put on the spot today, trust me, NONE OF THEM IS DRIVING A SECOND-HAND CAR. All are struggling behind cameras and always wanting to outshine celebrities. I guess their rent is below 5k 🤣🤣” Akothee fired.
The philanthropist went on to impose a Sh300 million penalty for bloggers who would dare tarnish her name.
“To All Kenyan Bloggers, this is your last day of posting rubbish about my brand, tarnishing my name for your own gain. You will be forced to pay a penalty of 300M if you post anything malicious about my brand. I don’t need you, you need my content, period. Wacheni kunipost sitaki.”
