“Some Churches are so plastic!” Akothee talks about crossing over to the gospel side


Controversial singer Esther Akoth popularly known as Akothee has revealed how she has a desire to join the gospel industry.

In a post shared on Instagram Akothee relieved how the church turned its back on her when her marriage was crumbling.

The singer narrated how her family’s tribulations were used as an example during sermons.

She added that despite that she still has a relationship with God and prefers to go to little known churches.

“Most of our church members turned their backs on me and even used my family’s challenges as an example during sermons and that’s how i left church and joined the world. But i still have tight contact with my god, he never left me alone. He walked with me even the paths that i thought would lead me to death. I go to church to reunite with god and not to show off big cars and new clothes. I actually go to churches where no one is driving unless it’s visitors, i connect better with them.” She said

She further called out some churches for being plastic that they feel as a showroom for wealthy people.

Akothee now says she has a calling to join the gospel industry and is contemplating her major switch.

“Some churches are so plastic that you even feel like it’s a showroom where people come to show their latest cars. May god forgive all of you who stand at the door. You don’t want to come in but also lock others outside. I do gospel music from deep down my heart and maybe soon, i will cross over. The calling is too heavy, my heart is willing but my body is weak,” she added.
