Rejection is poisonous: This is why I quit gospel, Akothee reveals

Kenya’s richest female songbird Akothee has poured out her frustrations with the church and why she left the gospel industry.

In a tell it all post that left many with their mouths agape, Akothee said that her fellow church goers rejected her following a bitter divorce with her estranged husband.

Akothee wrote that the church turned their back on her. Married women did not want to associate with her and the preachers used her broken marriage as an example during sermons.

 ‘’People reminding me of church am I the one holding the church key?

‘’Don't you know that I was the best soloist in my church! Do you know that the church choir would feel empty in my absence? & the day I miss church everyone would know that mama Vesha was not in church today!

‘’Do you know why I stopped gospel and went secular? It's because I could not keep up with the hypocrisy, the moment I got divorced, the entire church members I knew, family friends etc., turned their back on me, none of them or their wives wanted to associate with me! Preachers used my family status as an example to preach in church!

“Gave me all kinds of names because they heard the story from one side! No one wanted to associate with me! Rejection is poisonous, that's why most people mistake my attitude towards life for arrogance, Mimi ni msabato, sijabeba kifunguu ya kanisa yenyu wewe enda church ongea na Mungu wako, hatakuuliza dhambi zangu,’’ wrote Akothee.
