Published

on

A US based Kenyan events promoter has responded after controversial Kenyan singer, Esther Akoth, alias Akothee  accused her of mishandling her during a recent performance in  Minneapolis, Minnesota,

The artiste had taken to Instagram, and in a lengthy post, she told of how the lady named Sarah Okindo, who allegedly had invited her to perform and raise funds for the Akothee Foundation, turned around and became nasty to her.

But Ms Okindo is not taking it lying down and she has released all the Whatsapp conversations she had with the musician, as well as various receipts for all to see. She also took to Facebook live with her side of the story [watch below].

We reproduce the Instagram post by Akothee in its entirety here, and Sarah’s response after that:

“Mum I hope all I will say here is truth and God be my witness. You invited me to Minneapolis based on you wanting to promote and support Akothee foundation, My guts refused several times and I told my management I had other commitments in Nigeria on the 2nd, I was forced to cancel my flight to attend mineapolis show, @rumbanotes had paid for return flights on the 31st from Dallas to Paris, you ordered my manager to cancel the tickets and that you will buy new tickets for the 4th from mineapolis, Seattle ParisQA.

Four days before the show ,you changed the venue and asked my manager to make a new poster for new venue which he did, wanted prior dinner with me and your friends and I told my management that I don’t engage before my performance, this was for your own good, you said you had people who wanted to donate for Akothee foundation, and manager told you that we can do that after the show, you came to the airport with your family with just one car, well I love children so it wasn’t a problem for me, but we could hardly fit in, you checked me into a budget hotel, I still kept my calm , I was tired so I slept.

You then got your car back. Drove off and dumped my manager in the cold,with no means of transport to come back to the hotel, mum we were your guests , what happened” Akothee poses.

Why was I supposed to contact you directly after the show, if I dint contact you directly before, To beg for flight back home or hotel, Did you forget that I am MADAMBOSS?

DIASPORA HUSTLES: How a sofa I had taken from a dumpster in US earned me a date with a cop

Published

on

BY BOB MWITI

Life in America can be very humbling, especially when you are starting off.

After I graduated with my master’s degree here in America, I rented a studio apartment in one of the not-so-nice neighborhood in Philadelphia. During the day, I would help the caretaker with some cleaning of the common areas of the building and also in doing some repairs and paintwork. For that work, I would get something at the end of the week, enough to keep me going.

My studio abode was on the 5th floor of this old crammed building that sat next to a railway line. Down at the back side of the building lay the dumpster where all kind of “valuables” such as old TVs, music systems, mattresses, etc would be tossed…sometimes all the way from the top floor by the crazy residents.

During my cleaning duties, I would make sure that all of the mess around the dumpster was taken care of.

One day, during my usual duties, I found this unbelievably good used couch that I immediately thought would be a good addition to my studio which had nothing other than a mattress, no bed and only 2 pots and a plate!..My God of heaven & earth had answered my prayers!…and the Devil of poverty was on the cusp of defeat.🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

It was a gigantic couch and I urgently needed some help to take it all the way up to the 5th floor. I awkwardly reached out to a resident I had made friends with, and we went on a mission to take it all the way up!…with a promise of getting him a case of budlight beer! The trip up to the 5th floor took an eternity….we were all soaked in sweat.

Now, this is why they say the devil is a liar!!!.😂😂😂…What I didn’t know was that after all the hard work of pushing it all the way up, the stupid thing would never fit into my little door to my studio….😭😭😭😭….Tried endlessly until the guy gave up and left . I had no choice but to leave the damn thing on the hall way!!!..Well, the next day the caretaker and a cop were knocking on my door seeking an explanation as to why I was blocking the hallway!

Such is the life most of us immigrants go through when we first come to America.It’s not easy but with time things surely improve.

VIDEO: Sky News “Identifies” Kenyan who fell from a plane as more questions linger

Published

on

On 30 June 2019, a man fell from the sky and landed in the back garden of a house in south London. No one knew who he was or why he took such a risk – until now.

After an exclusive investigation, Sky News believes it has identified the stowaway. However, questions still linger over what exactly happened to the body, which was described by one of the witnesses as “intact because it was frozen.”

The British Media House has spent the last few months trying to determine the identity of this individual – including speaking to his family and friends – and has come to the conclusion that  he is a 29-year-old who worked as an airport cleaner in Kenya.

His girlfriend said they had planned to start a family, but he made a decision that virtually guaranteed his demise.

Earlier, London police released an e-fit image of the stowaway in hunt for his identity, and also released pictures of a bag that was found in the compartment and its contents were also released.

“This has been a very sad incident to investigate. This man has a family somewhere, who need to know what happened to their loved one,” a British police officer said while releasing the images.

“Our investigations has included liaison with the authorities in Kenya, from where the flight took off, but so far our efforts to identify this man have proved fruitless. I hope by releasing this e-fit someone known to the deceased will recognise him and make contact,” he added.

In the Sky News report, an employee of Colnet, a company that provides cleaning services at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, has identified the man as his workmate who went missing in June, Sky News reports.

Irene revealed that her colleague, Paul Manyasi, had gone missing at the end of June.

“We were at work in the morning…he suddenly disappeared. I called his phone it was off,” Irene, who was Manyasi’s girlfriend, told Sky News.

Manyasi lived in the sprawling Mukuru Kwa Njenga slum which is near the airport.

A US-based Bishop is unhappy with some Kenyan immigrants whom he says are tarnishing the good name of the community. Bishop Dr GG Gitahi of  Kenyan American Community Church (KACC) in Marietta, Georgia, has chastized some of his compatriots for what he terms as “unacceptable habits.”

During his Sermon aptly titled “Let Us Choose,” last Sunday, Bishop Dr GG Gitahi “went after” those who carry alcohol to funerals homes and imbibe while the funeral service is going on and furiously said he wishes some of those people remained back in Kenya to “save us the embarrassment.”

“If you are one of those people, you are an embarrassment to the larger Kenyan community in the US,” he said.

Ni aibu kubwa mnatuletea hapa. Instead of people waiting to go and have their beer at home, wanaenda kwa funeral Homes na kutoa bia na kuanza kunywa. Halafu Director wa Funeral Home anasema Pastor, can’t your people have mannersTabia zingine tuache. Ndiyo sababu tunajiaibisha.”
