Akothee and KRG the Don among others have responded to photoshopped images of Bahati and his family, that are making rounds on social media.

The Bahati's recently celebrated Majesty's fourth birthday and shared cute family portraits on social media.

Some social media users however manipulated the photos by adding some several male celebrities to the portrait.

In the photo, Victor Wanyama was positioned alongside Morgan to justify claims that they are related. Heaven Bahati on the other hand was linked to dancehall artist KRG The Don, while the couple’s younger son Majesty was linked to Actor and Film Director Abel Mutua.

Akothee called out Kenyans who lack empathy and respect in today’s digital age. She condemned the trend of maliciously comparing children and the culture of online bullying, highlighting the lasting emotional impact it can have on innocent young minds.

"The same photos will be used by bullies in school, to bully the innocent children on behalf of their parents. Which world are we living in?"

On Instagram, Akothee said it is wrong for people to drag children in such matters even if they have an issue with their parents. She emphasized the need for restraint and basic decency, particularly when it involves innocent children.

"THIS PHOTOSHOP SHOULD STOP THERE FOR THE SAKE OF THE CHILDREN. If you hate Bahati and Diana, their children have nothing to do with it 🙏. I wish we all had humanity."

Yesterday, KRG the Don also reacted to the portrait. He went ahead to criticize the people who manipulated the photos, adding that people should respect children.

"When will people learn how to respect children in this country. You can troll me and other adults all you can but watoto wa mtu is a no go zone wekeni heshima kidogo."
