Popular Benga artiste Esther “Akothee” Akoth yesterday threw a star-studded party at the Villa Rosa Kempinski Hotel to celebrate the first anniversary of her charitable organisation.

The celebrated and opinionated social media personality took to her official social media pages to inform her fans of the event, which promised a dose of humour and exclusivity, as well as networking among the who’s who.

In attendance was former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s wife, Ida Odinga, who made a grand entrance with the lady of the moment-Akothee.

The two walked in gracefully together at some point of the early evening, to be met by other celebrated guests, including media personality Janet Mbugua, power couple Nameless and Wahu, TV personality Churchill Ndambuki, actor Nick Mutuma among others.

The Akothee Foundation founder even took to Instagram to post a clip with Mrs Odinga for her 2.9 million followers, with the two playfully declaring that they are “beautiful women from Nyanza”.

“Someone call Tinga to come see his sweetheart,” Akothee captioned the clip, humorously urging the famous political leader to see his good-looking wife on the snaps.


The Benga artiste presumably resumed her charity endeavours last month when she led an online drive to help children returning to school with shopping supplies.

“I have finished educating my children. Now help me educate others. This is a bit heavy, though we shall pull through. Shopping alone is worse than school fees,” the singer captioned a photo of youth in ‘Akothee Foundation’ shirts putting supplies into their shopping baskets at a supermarket.

The singer later celebrated two of the young girls’ admissions to secondary school.
