Tuesday, Akothee’s manager Nelson Oyugi popularly known as Nelly Oaks came out to clarify what led to the singer’s collapse during the Luo Festival in Kisumu.

According to Mr. Oyugi Akothee collapsed due to fatigue.

“Her recent tours seem to have caused her burnout, although she did not show any signs of tiredness before the event. What happens is that those changes, including the time zones, come to affect the body especially when you are not taking the right vitamins,” he said.
