Celebrated Kenyan Afro-pop songstress Esther Akoth popularly known by her stage name Akothee on Monday revealed that artistes willing to do a collabo with her would have to part with a small fortune.

Speaking to Radio Citizen’s Mzazi Willy M Tuva, Akothee said artistes must raise Ksh1 million to do a collabo with her.

“Don’t settle for less. As for me don’t call if you can’t afford to raise Ksh1 million for a collabo,” she added.

The Give it to me hitmaker has bagged two awards this year for best female artiste in the just concluded African Muzik Magazine Awards( AFRIMMA) and African Entertainment Awards USA (AEAUSA)
