Akothee has strongly denied that she pulled strings with people she knows to secure her firstborn daughter a lucrative job at Unga Holdings Limited.
The singer broke news about Vesha Okello landing the job when she visited her eldest daughter in her office at Unga Ltd.
Akothee is Unga Ltd brand ambassador
The fact that Vesha got employed by Unga Ltd just a month after her mother was appointed by the company as its brand ambassador made some people conclude that Akothee used her influence and contacts to get her the job.
Akothee signed a contract with Unga Holdings Limited to be their brand ambassador on April 7, 2022, in a ceremony marked with pomp and colour.
The mother of five has since come out to deny claims that she used her connections to secure Vesha a job. She claims her daughter was hired on merit.
Akothee insists children are go-getters
Akothee took to social media to jot down a lengthy piece explaining how she has never accorded her children preferential treatment even when employing them in her own companies.
"I hope you pick a leaf from Vesha Shillan Awour Okello.
"The only thing I have achieved positively in life is raising responsible go-getters. Well all my children have different strengths and that's what I invest in. To start with, I Esther Akoth Kokeyo have never asked for a job for my children, not even in my companies, they send a proposal to me and join me in the daily running of my businesses."
"With that passion for making it, Vesha stole my heart and I gave her part of my company as the Director AT AKOTHEE SAFARIS. Well as if this was not enough, when COVID-19 struck, we were both in Mombasa and we had just had a groundbreaking of the jumba suits, She announced to me that she had been following on getting an internship at Peptang , and they have asked her to join as soon as Monday 🤔🤔😭😭😭."
"Well as an overprotective mom, I asked why she would leave handling millions to secure an internship and she said; 'Mom, I need external experience for me to be able to support our businesses better 🤔
It was not an easy decision for both of us 🤔 I will work for our companies at night do follow-ups, but allow me take up this."
"We actually ended up on some Wall , ‼️ 3 months down the line, she was handed a certificate as the best sales Horeca representative. I visited her in Nairobi and my daughter was waking up at 4 to set and meet her targets 🤔."
"I found her working and I asked if she had exams and she said nope! I am working on my targets for this month . As soon as she was confirmed, the following month she had her house all furnished and moved out of the hostel I rented for them as her sister Rue Baby was still in school."
"Her coming to UNGA
"Has got nothing to do with my influence, you know that I speak the truth always. The day she was going for the interview she dropped me at the embassy and kept the news of me 🤔 It was just a big surprise as well."
"My kids are go-getters, that's what I installed in them. Well just like my name could open doors ,trust me several doors are closed for them too. They equally have borrowed haters and lovers. It has nothing to do with influence this time round it's value."
"I have had people bring their children into my companies who could not even stand the pressure. For my kids even if I would die today they will still stand the hit."
"My second born Rue is the project manager at Akothee Foundation. Fancy Makadia is in her final year graduating this year too. And she is already working in France part-time whenever she doesn't have classes. This Is the way I have managed as a mother just in case I don't breathe. I don't speak French though," Akothee wrote.
