Kenya Film and Classification Board CEO, Ezekiel Mutua, has unveiled the front line warriors in the fight against Covid-19.
Taking to his twitter account, Dr. Ezekiel announced that East Africa’s best female artist Akothee will be awarded for being the best improved artist in Kenya. The KFCB boss praised Akothee for revamping her content and taking a good will course in favor of the less privileged.
“Esther Akoth alias Akothee takes the trophy for the most improved artist in Kenya. Her online messages and content of late are very inspiring,” wrote Ezekiel.
To appreciate her improvement, Dr. Ezekiel said he will award Akothee with Sh. 50,000. The singer has since expressed her regards towards the KFCB boss and said that she will channel the funds to the night club workers who have been laid off due to Covid-19.
In 2019 Akothee made it to Dr. Ezekiel’s radar after revealing pictures of her started doing rounds online. The singer, who seemed to be having the time of her life at the Africa Music Fest podium, was roasted by Kenyans for being obscene and painting Kenya on the wrong light.
Dr. Ezekiel accused Akothee of being a bad role model and was on many occasions on her neck trying to encourage her to turn around and avoid posting pictures of her half-dressed, twerking and taking pictures in compromising poses.
