Akothee Opens Up About Beef with Cebbie Koks
Kenyan musician Esther Akoth, better known as Akothee, recently shared a heartfelt account of the challenging dynamics between her and her siblings, particularly her younger sister, Cebbie Koks.
In an emotional interview with Presenter Ali on Thursday, June 22, Akothee delved into the hurtful events that transpired.
Akothee spoke fondly of her father, highlighting his unwavering support as her number one fan. She emphasized her role in supporting her family, both emotionally and financially, over the years.
However, when she announced her own wedding plans, it coincided with her sister’s upcoming wedding, which led to conflicting circumstances.
Akothee recounted how she supported her sister’s wedding wholeheartedly by allowing her children to attend the ceremony. However, behind the scenes, tensions simmered, and there were unresolved issues between them.
Akothee explained that her sister crossed certain boundaries, and she expected an apology that never materialized. Consequently, she did not feel welcome at her sister’s wedding.
According to Akothee, she heard that her sister convinced others that there was no actual wedding and that Akothee had merely sought to overshadow her special day.
Akothee’s interview has sparked a conversation about the challenges of sibling relationships. Many people have expressed their support for Akothee, while others have offered their own experiences with difficult siblings.
Akothee’s story is a reminder that even the strongest relationships can be tested. However, it is also a reminder that family is always there for us, even when things are tough.
“When I announced my wedding, my younger sister was having a wedding as well. Omosh wanted to bring cows in December but i told him to wait we were having another wedding.
On my sisters wedding i gave the much support i could… it shows that i didn’t have a problem with the wedding. There is a problem between us that needed to be solved. So how could i just invite myself there?
That time we had wrangles with my sister and she’s the one who is always crossing my line and i expected her to apologise which never happened. So there was no way i could bring myself to a table i am not invited.
I was waiting for my sister to come and tell me you know lets put our differences aside. I am sorry. the only word i was waiting to make her realize she’s really hurt me to the core… and it would have ended there.
Everybody saw me like a bad person and i can remember i was the unifying factor for my family. I’ve been there , I’ve educated them, I’ve supported them, but when it came to me things started changing.
From what we heard, i think she convinced everybody that there was no wedding, and that i just wanted to stand her wedding.”
