Kenyan singer Esther Akoth alias Akothee has been barred from holding a performance in South Sudan.
Reports reveal that the controversial singer had sent a request to hold a music tour in the country but it was rejected on moral grounds.
South Sudan Embassy had earlier welcomed Akothee’s request but after consultations the country decided to cancel the singer’s scheduled performance.
t’s alleged that country’s top ministers led by Dr Nadia and Makuei Lueth are part of a team that questioned the singer’s morals before nullifying it.
“She is a bad influence and lacks self-respect. I watched her performances on YouTube and with the way she immorally behaves on stage, I conclude she is not the right musician to entertain our youth,” the outlet quoted Dr Nadia.
