Kenyan singer Esther Akoth, alias Akothee told her fans that she is done with relationships after comparing her health condition to when she was single.
Taking to Instagram stories, Akothee posted a past picture while in the hospital and highlighted that she got admitted in 2017, 2018, and 2019. The Lotto singer pointed out that in those years she got sick, she was in a relationship.
In comparison, Akothee said that her health stabilized in 2020, and she was never hospitalized nor got any headaches because she was single.
However, when the singer got back into dating in June 2021, her health deteriorated after three months of being in the relationship. Akothee said she went into depression that saw her get admitted to the hospital for over six months, adding that she “can’t do this again.”
The singer’s post comes a week after she confirmed her breakup with her former manager and lover, Nelly Oaks.
Akothee, who recently launched her book ‘Akothee quotes’, said it was a personal decision to end the relationship so that she could focus on her “new found happiness.”
“I have walked out of other relationships with different ups & downs, so this last one shouldn’t be a shock or a surprise. It’s just a personal decision, I need time to concentrate on my new Found happiness with less destruction, I need to work on myself and my career, I am not ready for any commitment, questions or answers to what transpired just didn’t want to hurt anyone. But sorry it is what it is,” said Akothee.
Akothee further urged her fans to respect Nelly, saying that their relationship involves their families too.
“Me and Mr N have a family Relationship back in Rongo. For that matter let’s respect family and keep family RESPECT, He is not someone I just picked on the streets. So for that matter. Wishing All of you the best of life,” she added.
