If you’re a fan of concerts there is nothing as annoying as having an artiste walk in on stage at 2:00 am. Akothee was caught in that mess and she had a lot to say.

According to her, she was at the beck and call of her promoters and managers. If it was up to her she would have been on stage by 12:00 am which is a reasonable time.


 

 

The drama came up after a fan who was eagerly waiting for Akothee to step on stage took her rant to social media claiming Akothee had still not stepped on stage.

Akothee just wants to let her fans know it was not her fault and she is not like other artistes who come late because they are drunk or chipoing someone.

It hurts, really hurts, what fans ought to know is that , an Artist is at the mercy’s of a promoter and the management, whenever there is a show πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ I personally don’t drink or smoke, nor carry women to the room or men to keep me busyπŸ™πŸΎ that’s why I insist on a bathtub or jacuzzi if possible, that’s where I have my fun, to keep me awake ! The alcohol on my rider is for my team. I don’t drink before I step on stage so there is totally nothing to keep me in the room awake until 2.33 am. I always wish to perform by 12.00 am that’s when all human beings are awake, the rest is autopiloting, we are all human for that matter πŸ™†β€β™‚οΈπŸ™†β€β™‚οΈ but most promoters always have a problem with either balance, or wanting people to drink more before an artist come on stage ” if an artist comes now ,watu hawata nunua pombe ” so let her wait till around 1.00 am, fans also come late, with the notion of ooooh, the show will start around 1.00 am,Β we are all suffering in this platform Artiste/fans .

β€˜Today I have missed your presence’ Akothee’s cute message to Nelly Oaks

She apologized to her fans for the late-night performance saying,

It did hurt me seeing elderly women in the crowd who waited until 3.00 am πŸ™†β€β™‚οΈπŸ™†β€β™‚οΈπŸ™†β€β™‚οΈ, I was so ashamed and decided to compensate by having a photo session, which was not in my program πŸ™†β€β™‚οΈπŸ™†β€β™‚οΈπŸ™†β€β™‚οΈ, just to learn later that there was an extra charge for personal photo for VIP, sorry I didn’t know this!

Let me take the opportunity to apologize for all my fans who never knew things are different on the ground! I am not a signed artist, this is purely my investment solely, I would not tamper with it at any given moment! That’s why I stay awake, sober and direct! I have spent over 650,000 USD to build this brand! I will do anything to protect it! Including running away from myself. I have no record label doing things for me! I am nobodies investment but me, I value and respect my fans, any time any day, but that doesn’t give some of them an account to disrespect me, or utter rubbish to me, I am human with blood and flesh too! I give it to you just like you served it , it’s my nature. Lying is not in my dictionary, that’s why most people can’t keep up with me! Don’t share your family struggles with me! My own is messed up with so many baby daddies, how can I help youπŸ€·β€β™‚

Maybe now we understand why some artistes step on stage at 3:00 am, si kupenda kwao.
