Sensational singer, Esther Akoth is wondering how her colleague celebrities are able to deal with netizens who bully them on social media.
The mother of five suggested that such bullies are better off when blocked on the apps.
Sharing her humble opinion on her Instastories, the singer challenged her fellow stars to make use of the block button when necessary.
“Advice to all celebrities and public figures. Do not allow anyone to bully you on your own page posting about your own life on your own wall,” she said in part.
Esther Akothe who has over 3.2 million Instagram followers, noted that such people will always create a pseudo account, however, they should get worn off by blocking them.
“Block them and any other account they will open,” she added.

On the other hand, gospel singer Kambua strongly believes that many people who troll each other on social media are just cowards.
“I have established that 99.9% of trolls on this app are such cowards. “Where is your profile pic? Where is your real name? Why hide behind a pseudo to spew venom?” she questioned adding, “What a sad way to live. May you be delivered in Jesus’ name!”
Akothee encouraged her daughters while publicly advising them to accept people who troll them, saying such people propel one to fame.
“Let the noise from the internet be sweet music to your ears, those are not your enemies, they are your cheerleaders/ they admire you, imagine performing without an audience. You need those supporting you and those insulting you, that’s the only way you will strike a balance in life,” said Akothee.
“Those who insult you makes you more famous, they make you interesting for you are doing something they are not capable of, you are a reflection of what they would want to be, it’s just that it’s not coming for them. They are not bitter with you, they are bitter with their lives, pray for them have fun you have a life,” she added.
She Was Young At The Time, Tanasha Donna On Grudge With Bey T
Barely two years after Tanasha Donna and Bey T stormed the internet to fight over a catchphrase, Tanasha has finally given details on her beef with the rapper for the first time.
According to the musician, the misunderstanding came after they both disagreed on an issue.
In an interview with KISS FM, the musician cum entrepreneur said Bey T was young and was misled by people into instigating petty quarrels.
“Honestly speaking I think it was just a misunderstanding, it started over a quote, the ‘Kenya to the world’ thing. And I like she was young at the time and like people tried instigating drama. You know how people can be… people can easily corrupt one’s mind, especially when there is nothing going on,” she said.
According to Tanasha, it is easy to have the feeling that people are out to kill your shine when starting, especially as a young girl in a competitive industry.
“Talking from experience as a young girl you can feel easily like people are out to get you or steal your shine…but I feel like she’s a great artist so she was trying to spit some bars which she is amazing at and I’ll give her credit for that,” she added.
The mother of one confirmed that they have a good relationship following their beef and now are both open to the idea of collaborating with Bey T even though the two have never met yet.
“Why not? I mean I like her music and she’s amazing. Plus, right now, we’re at a good place, we haven’t really met but we have people in common whom we work with,” she said.
Amid their banter, Bey T went ahead to drop a diss track called ‘Don to the Donna’ attacking Tanasha for allegedly sampling her music in 2019.
“Someone tell Tanasha to stop wave riding,” Bey T wrote on Instagram at the time.
According to the rapper, the phrase “Kenya to the World” originated from her, but Tanasha stole it.
