Akothee did not go into detail about what happened, but she did say that she was experiencing trauma, shaking, loss of appetite and sleep, panic attacks, and even lost motivation in doing things she loved to do.
“Some days, a night will just break into a day with me looking outside the window guessing at nothing 🤔, I would be shaking for reasons I can’t explain, and just remember,I still had work to do, A family and an empire to protect . I still had to put on a strong Face and entertain my fans 🙏. .I thank All my close friends , Family especially my Children, my mom Beatrice Schnelli-Okello & my best friend Nellyoaks, PLO, Vj Adams.”

“For being part of my strength. I would not have done it without you 💪. Nellyoaks has been on speed dial he would call me nonstop and would panic when my phone went off , my children equally especially the girls made sure we had a face timer just to check if I am okey 🙏 Rue Followed me to Europe in fear of Losing me , baby sitted me until I could stand on my feet 💪.”
