Give Azziad and Ababu a break! Akothee slams haters

Kenyan songbird Akothee has termed the alleged romantic affair involving Cabinet Secretary for Youth Affairs, Sports and the Arts, Ababu Namwamba and renowned content creator Azziad Nasenya is a non-issue.

The rumours have been flying ever since Azziad was appointed to the now-disbanded Talanta Hela Committee on February 9, with Namwamba assigning her a role within the initiative’s creative technical committee.

But in Akothee’s view there are more important issues than the alleged relationship between the two that Kenyans should focus on.

“Is Azziad not above 18 years of age? Is she not entitled to date as an adult? Is Cabinet Secretary Ababu Namwamba not a grown man, especially being a Luhya African man, and therefore free to make his own choices? Azziad has never claimed to be anyone’s wife; she is just a young individual,” Akothee said.

“Azziad is like my daughter, when things got tight I reached out to her, she has no idea why Kenyans plant the CS on her,” the singer said.

The songbird said if two parties are interested in each other and are single, there shouldn’t be an issue.

Both Azziad and Namwamba have explicitly denied being in a romantic relationship.

Azziad, responding to Akothee’s post, expressed gratitude to the singer.

“Thanks, Mom. May God keep fighting my battles for me,” Azziad said.

In a recent interview, Mr Namwamba said he is not romantically involved with Azziad.
