Musician Akothee on Sunday, August 6 spoke after the management of Ng’iya Girls’ Secondary school cancelled her invitation, which had sparked mixed reactions among Kenyans.
In a statement on her Facebook account, Akothee shared her intentions following the invitation and the last-minute decision that saw her invitation annulled.
“Hi Ma’am, we have new developments in Ng’iya girls. We shall have to cancel the event because the ACK bishop of the area is not comfortable with your presence.
They even went to school and were hard on the principal Madam Hellen,” a message from Akothee’s Manager Sam read.
On July 31, the school wrote to the Akothee Foundation inviting the celebrity to the school talent show and Ng’iya gracious givers launch that was to take place on August 6.
“Our talent show will take place on August 6th, 2023, at the school compound. During the event we are looking forward to launching our Charity activities,” the invite read in part.
According to the school’s principal, the event also sought to raise funds for needy and vulnerable students at the learning institution.
“This is basically to help the needy and vulnerable students amongst us in terms of school fees and other basic needs.
Your organization Akothee Foundation will help us reach out to other like-minded organizations/companies to support the initiative. We are counting on your support to make this launch a success.
You are also expected to give an inspirational talk to the students before the charity launch begins,” Hellen Juma, the school’s Principal wrote to Akothee.
The artiste took to social media to thank the school for the consideration and accepted the decision to cancel her performance at the 11th hour.
“Thank you very much Madam, the almighty bless your heart. I met you in Sinyolo Girls and you stole my heart with your kindness, you made my work of admitting the less fortunate easy, even though I was late to thank you.
Thank you very much for helping me support the vulnerable, you saw it fit to help you walk the journey of the underprivileged, but there is a way the universe works for us.” Akothee post read.
Moreover, the musician said that Ng’iya school was now popular even among people who never knew it existed.
“Ng’iya Girls High school is now on the map, known globally, even those who didn’t know Ngiya Girls, now they know, I pray that your new development of having a foundation within the school will uplift a lot of soul,” she said in her post.
Furthermore, the musician thanked the principal for having faith in her and encouraged priests to pray for sinners.
“I really appreciate the love and faith you have in me; I will still support any course that will leave a positive impact on our society, where I can and even where I am standing. May God bless you.
To the ACK bishop I understand where you come from, continue praying for us sinners, so we can all meet in heaven on that day. In Jesus name Amen,” Akothee concluded.
