Here is why Akothee has now dropped all makeup and joined team natural

Self-proclaimed president of single mothers, Esther Akoth, aka Akothee has revealed why she has chosen to drop all makeup and remain natural.

In a post on Instagram, the mother of five attributed her decision to her new bae, Omosh, whom she says constantly reminds her of how beautiful she is. This, she claims, is what has made her join team natural.

“Always reminding me how pretty I am, how beautiful I am, he made me drop makeup like hot cake, unless I am going for an important event. This is raw love,” Akothee wrote in the post with picture of herself and her bae toasting to a drinking with a well-laid table in front of them in what appears to be an exotic getaway destination.

Some time back, Akothee posted a video of herself without makeup, saying she wants her skin back.

In 2018, the businesswoman stirred conversation after outlining her reasons for putting a top on applying makeup. At that time, Akothee argued that she was lying to herself and others by applying makeup.

“I realized I was lying to myself and to the people. Why should I admire someone else in the mirror for almost 1 hour making faces thinking it’s beautiful?” she said back then.
