Popular Kenyan singer Esther Akoth aka Akothee has given out a list of instructions she wishes to be followed by her family and fans in the event of her death.
Irked by ‘a few pretentious celebrities’ who have the habit of not supporting their counterparts and only posting and celebrating them after their demise, Akothee ordered that none of them should come to her funeral.
“A celebrity is celebrated more when dead than alive, sad. Let nobody come to my funeral expecting special services. You never paid for a VVIP nor showed up on my concerts and when I am dead, now you want to be recognized as one of Akothee’s supporters. Don’t come,” she wrote.
To her family, Akothee gave instructions on where she would want her body to be viewed and later laid to rest adding that none of her baby daddies will have to fight for her remains.
“I have instructed my family that in an event that I die before them, my body will be viewed at Rakwaro Primary School, so my loyal fans can see me it has a huge space. None of my exes will fight over my body, it’s all sorted.
“Definitely I won’t be buried in Europe, Rongo Nyale, but Jakamagambo rakwaro kacha, if you want to eat in my funeral, please carry your packed lunch, Don’t come to frustrate my family with VVIP,” shared Akothee.
The mother of five pleaded that no one should frustrate her family after her demise.
“You never paid for it when I was alive, stick to your lane! My family are not celebrities, they are not the richest female Artist, Akothee has died with the show. Come, mourn, bring gifts, money and presents and leave in peace.”
“We shall all die yes, the internet never forgets so save this one, you are the internet. I would rather have a funeral full of fans and 7 celebrities! Did you know that very few celebrities contribute to Paybills, sijataja mutu mimi call police. Fans is you see any celeb post my RIP on their pages, and they never posted my work, please wake me up haki,” she concluded.
Death is not your portion
