Speaking during an interview with Radio Citizen's Mambo Mseto show on Monday, Oyugi said Akothee's collapsing was as a result of 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,” Oyugi noted.

He dismissed claims that the singer is pregnant or could be suffering from another disease.

“It is purely fatigue because Akothee usually gives her all during performances. She had moved on with her performance for close to 45 minutes and it is during the last 30 seconds that she fell down, any other rumours should be strongly ignored,” the manager added.

He went ahead to clarify the relationship between him and Akothee was purely business-related and nothing more saying "We are very good friends and very good at what we do in business. Anything apart from that is just public imagination.
