Controversial musician and businesswoman Akothee is unhappy about crooks illegally benefiting from her sweat and toil. Though 2020 has had its fair share of difficulties, mainly arising from the Covid-19 pandemic, it has been a successful year for some celebrities.
Akothee, whose real name is Esther Akoth,, has taken to Facebook to fight the scam.
She accused some people she did not name of using her videos on their YouTube channels and benefiting from the royalties.
According to the singer, who owns Akothee Safaris, a travel agency, said all her YouTube channels are run by Ngoma and told the copyright infringers to keep off.
The singer threated to go after the culprits, warning that they would live to regret messing up with her.
She posted on her Facebook page: “YouTube, I do not know who ONErpm is. All I know is that my YouTube channel is run and monitored by Ngoma. I receive my monthly royalties from Ngoma. All these other idiots need to collect all the money they have been collecting on my behalf and give it to me. I can’t kill myself trying to go make money and others hop onto it.”
Akothee cautioned people thinking of uploading her content on their channels that she would deal with them.
This comes just after comedian and YouTube content creator Flaqo complained about social media about his account being terminated due to copyright issues.
“At this point, it’s really exhausting. Please, report all channels that are not mine but have my content. I’ve worked so hard to be disrespected. Because I am just about to launch my show on YouTube, it’s maliciously taken down. I am not dropping the mic by the way, so if you maliciously want me out of the industry, sorry, we will be back with twice the energy. This waris getting a little personal.”
