Kenyan musician-cum-businesswoman Esther Akoth, popularly known as Akothee, has now revealed that she could be the highest paid local artist at the moment.

Akothee, in an interview with YouTuber Presenter Ali, said she now charges $20,000 (approx. Ksh.2.3 million) for a performance.

According to the vocal musician, her rate card has risen over the years to reach that level because she brings value to every event or concert she is booked for.

“Right now my rate card is $20,000. It’s value for money, I bring value. I think I’m the number one earning artist in Kenya right now,” she said.

The ‘Abebo’ hitmaker further confirmed that she is indeed no longer in a relationship with Nelly Oaks.

“I will never announce a breakup if I have not walked through it. In a breakup, everybody is hurt and a lot of people are struggling…even the biggest of the biggest celebrities,” she said.

“Relationship is not something you can ignore because it’s a matter of the heart…according to me, I had walked out of the relationship in December. So right now I’m single.”
