“@akotheekenya I would have asked for
a) a new wardrobe
b) a car
c) a party hata ndege because I know you can get me any of these things if I ask but honestly, I don’t want any of those things… Instead of spending all that money on me I would love that you pay for a girl child, who is suffering somewhere in this country school fees… Because there is more to giving than receiving,” Makadia wrote on Instagram.
