The self-proclaimed ‘president of single mothers may have had some that was too strong for her liking a few days ago, collapsing in the middle of her performance.
During her performance at Luo festival, Akothee appeared to lose bearings and shortly thereafter, things ended earlier than expected.
With shocked response from the audience audible in the background, she hit the deck as crew members rushed to her side and held her. You can see a video clip of the incident below.

Her manager, Nelly Oaks has addressed the collapse following what must have been a nightmarishly surreal experience for him.
Oaks said that the Lotto singer of five went into heavy activity, soon after leaving hospital where she had been asked to rest.
The manager stated that Akothee did not show any signs of sickness, but had mentioned that she was a little tired, and went ahead to run her set, before collapsing after losing her breath.
“She is in Kisumu still resting at the Acacia Hotel and trying to recover because she went into heavy activity just after checking out of the hospital and went straight into rehearsals she didn’t want to disappoint her fans.
She had actually run her set for 45 minutes and it was during the last 30 seconds of the last song that the unfortunate incident happened. She had lost lots of breath because of the up and down activity. So that’s what forced her to faint but the good news is we got her to the car and we didn’t have to go all the way to the hospital because she recovered slowly and we gave her vitamins and juice and she was back to normal,” he said.
Oaks added that doctors had recommended a two weeks bed rest for the mother of five and she would do it at her Rongo Spa home.
“She has been recommended bed rest and she is headed to her home in Rongo where she is going to rest for at least two weeks,” said Oaks.
In any event, it’s good to know that Madam Boss is back on her feet physically capable of entertaining her fan base with her hot takes!
