Akothee’s sister Elseba Awuor Kokeyo alias Cebbie has come out to address reports that they are still not on good terms with each other.
The pair had a highly publicised spat a few weeks ago after Cebbie, through screenshots shared by gossipmonger Edgar Obare, sensationally claimed that Akothee is broke and can’t afford school fees.
The leaked screenshots showed Cebbie’s conversation with a former lover in which she also claimed that Akothee is a husband snatcher and had dated several politicians in the country.
The allegations drew a response from Akothee, who claimed that some of her relatives were bitter after she stopped giving them cash handouts.
“I have done more than enough for my family! I know some of them feel bad when they see me support people I don’t know, but the truth is, I get fulfilled when I help those that are in need and expect nothing,” she wrote on Instagram.
Adding: “Since I stopped dishing out money and attending to family problems apart from my parents & grandparents, I am hardly loved. My family has no idea of my wealth nor my whereabouts, even if I die today, they have no idea of whom is handling my will / Bill’s. They are guests in my life. I respect and love my family very much and the only way to keep the relationship is to love them from afar since I have no option but to love them.”
Speaking for the first time since the debacle, Cebbie said there is no bad blood between them.
In a YouTube chat with media personality CJ Atemo, she acknowledged that just like any other family, they fight and make up.
“Family is family and I like the way people kept on attacking me ‘oooh… you can’t fight president of single mothers (Akothee)’… She’s my sister. Even if I am killed today, she’ll open her arms and accept me because she’s more of my mother, something people don’t know,” Cebbie said.
She added: “We also fight badly and hit optimum. What people don’t know is that when Akothee and I are fighting in that family nobody talks because no one can bring us together. We find a way to talk. [When the screenshot messages leaked online], Akoth and I talked on the same day. I do not understand why people keep on asking: ‘are you talking to your sister?… We don’t need to show you that we’re talking or we’re good. It didn’t dent our relationship as much. I am human, [I make mistakes].”
She also noted that she has learnt to trust only a few people in her life.
The screenshots were allegedly leaked by the wife of Cebbie’s former lover; she accused Cebbie of snatching her husband late last year.
