Akothee gives hater a piece of her mind in epic Instagram rant
Someone seems to have deeply angered musician Akothee aka Madam Boss. The Baby Daddy artiste recently went on a rant on social media and in so many words, told off the person who among other things questioned her dress code and called her a prostitute.
In return, Akothee questioned whether the hater has brains and advised her to “get a corner, sit down and continue analysing and getting broke with a heart full of bitterness,” Oh, and just to show her that she is not lacking for money, she happened to mention that she pays Sh650,000 per term for one of her children’s school fees.
“I never saw a rich prostitute, not here in Kenya, I don’t know if it’s in Europe. I don’t live there. If it’s fame you want I will give it to you… you are posing with your breasts out on your profile pics yet you dare question my dress code, am I your mother? One of my children is paying 650K per term yet they are five, how many men will I sleep with to cover this? Lost sheep! Start analysing your life, analysing my life yet you haven’t met me. Now if you come to my real life you will commit suicide because s**t is real, I’m not one of those celebrities who pose with fake things, come slowly,” she wrote.
Wema Sepetu denies claims of a ban on lipstick brand
Tanzanian actress Wema Sepetu has denied reports that her lipstick brand ‘Kiss’ has been banned by Tanzanian Government.
According to news that broke last week, the standard product watchdog in Tanzania TBS (an equivalent of Kenya’s KEBS), and The Tanzania Foods and Drug Authority (TFDA) stopped the distribution of the lipstick saying it was unfit for human use.
But according to Sepetu’s long time manager and close ally Martin Kadinda, they are not aware of such news because as far as they are concerned, they had obtained all the necessary documentation to carry out the business. However, they have halted the production of the lipstick not because of the ban as reported, but because they are planning to launch different products.
“Hatuna taarifa kwa sababu vibali vyote vipo na hizo zilishaenda sokoni na zilishaisha, kwa hiyo sisi kama hatuna tayari zipo sokoni. Kama ni mtu aliamka na kuamua kuandika all the best kwake, sisi mziko ulishakwisha alitengeneza product za kwanza now anakuja na product nyingine” Kadinda reacted while on a Tanzanian radio show The Playlist.
The former Miss Tanzania launched the lipstick brand in 2015 on her 26th birthday when she also gifted herself with a Range Rover.
