This week Akothee remembered the time she caused a stir at Parliament Buildings over her inappropriate dress code. The mother of five feels her dressing was okay but jealousy won the day as only women complained about it.
She took to Instagram on Tuesday, May 5, to share several photos of the famous green suit which led to her short-lived stay in parliament.
Akothee could not believe she was thrown out of the establishment, saying there were “a bunch of women” who actually pushed for her to be removed. “Imagine they threw me out of parliament with this suit saying I was (undressed), I remember there were a bunch of women really complaining that I should be thrown out,” she said.
Akothee revealed no man had issues with her dressing saying women enjoy picking fights with other women, which was pretty common.
“Apparently, men did not have issues at all, why do you think is normally a women’s problem with other women surely? It is my legs that are longer than the skirt?” Akothee asked.
The Rollam hitmaker revealed to not fancy trousers because she had knocked knees which looked really bad in pants. The event happened back in September 2019, after the musician was invited by nominated MP David Sankok for a discussion at the parliament’s restaurant over an undisclosed matter.
She was held hostage for more than 20 minutes as the host pleaded with the orderlies to allow his guest to get into the buildings and she was eventually allowed to enter the dining hall after being given a kikoi by a lady Sergeant-at-arms to cover her thighs.
She agreed at first but later decline wearing the African leso as it tarnished her look. In another social media post, Akothee laughed at the incident insisting she had dressed properly for the occasion. The singer, however, vowed she would in future resort to wearing attire that completely covered her, even if they are unflattering on her body.
