Kenyan musician Esther Akoth, widely known as Akothee, has taken to social media to assert her need for privacy amid recent personal challenges.
In a candid Instagram post, Akothee requested that concerned Kenyans refrain from calling her, emphasizing that it was disrespectful to contact her solely based on her online status.
Akothee firmly stated that she was no longer seeking advice, sympathy, or explanations from others.
She made it clear that those reaching out to her were driven by curiosity rather than genuine concern.
“I have passed the place where I needed advice, sympathy or explanations. If I never reached out to you for advice or a shoulder to lean on kindly don’t call me,” she said.
“You are not calling because you care but because you want first-hand information. Don’t call me, I repeat don’t call me. You never called me when I was winning, you never called to check up on me, and most of you calling me now never call to congratulate me on big wins.”
The mother of five said the information that the public has is all and those calling her should know they are a destruction.
She said she had nothing to discuss with those calling her.
“I am not the first trying to balance life. Again when I walk into your officers and banks for meetings do not ask me questions unrelated to what I have come to do,” Akothee said.
This stern message follows Akothee’s recent revelation about undergoing therapy to heal from a challenging period in her life.
Akothee’s life became public interest earlier this year when she changed her name after marrying Denis Schweizer, also known as Omosh. While their lavish wedding in Kenya was attended by notable figures, including politicians and celebrities, the planned second wedding in Omosh’s homeland of Switzerland did not materialize.
Akothee’s decision to step away from social media following the wedding indicated her intent to focus on her marriage and personal well-being.
