A Kenyan singer is set to release a music video that is likely to be the talk of town.
The release, set for March 29, comes at a time when the entertainer, known as Akothee aka Madam Boss, has just returned from being hospitalised for fatigue.
That did not stop her from leaving the hospital and shooting her music video as planned.
“I, Madam Boss; the President of the Single Mothers; am urging all the women to get off their pity party and stand for their rights,” Akothee says, “I shot the video at a time when I was meant to be in the hospital and on bed rest for exhaustion. Never stop believing in yourself. My fans should expect more hits and entertainment, after all, my life, your entertainment.”
The music video for Oyoyo shall be released at 9pm on Akothee Kenya’s YouTube page.
Akothee appears not to have spared any expenses in shooting the music video. She has gone all out to showcase her lifestyle as a boss; a showbiz boss.
In the music video there is a private jet, luxury car waiting to pick her once she walks down the blue carpet, a Presidential Suite to chill in at top hotel and fine dining.
“I can tell you for sure the budget came up to Sh5 Million,” Nelly Oaks, the star’s manager revealed.”The video is a collaborative effort between Akothee and top brands like Silverstone Airline Limited, Moet & Chandon and Acacia Premiere Hotel in Kisumu.”
Akothee explains why this time round she has shot the music video, not only in Kenya but in her home county, Kisumu.
“I stopped shooting videos abroad because I want to promote my culture and my country let the resources revolve around my country. The video was shot in my home town of Kisumu and I am proud of that,” Akothee says.
Akothee is not one to do anything in a subtle manner. During the shooting of the music video with MC Galaxy, she brought Kisumu to a standstill. The set of the music video that was shot on the street was swamped with spectators.
The track, Oyoyo, is produced by Spell “MagikBoi” while the music video was shot by One Montage Production.
