I never fall for online love – Akothee condemns dating Apps

Singer Esther Akoth alias Akothee has expressed her distaste for online dating claiming that she does not believe in falling in love with someone through social media and prefers to meet her man in person.

The businesswoman shared a lengthy post on her Instagram page where she not only condemned online dating but also highlighted how fake she believes people are on social media.

They pretend to be good friends online only to switch up in person.

“I never fall for online love. So don’t waste your DM (direct message)!

I have always warned my children even as far as meeting people they interact with online. Forget about dating, even just being friends,” read her post in part.

Akothee added that she has been betrayed by people she thought were her true fans when she decided to extend a helping hand.

“With my stupid heart, I have only believed the words fans told me, some stole my heart and I decided to give a helping hand. It became a debt.

I invited some for holidays and they turned into real haters of life, some begged to meet me and proclaimed how much they loved me, only to quench their meanness and turned me into a victim of their venom,” she continued.

She went on to question how people usually find love online claiming that she is afraid of men who parade themselves on social media often.

“Since then, I learnt my lessons of how fake people are and how some people could afford to have double faces.

I wonder how people find love by dating online, I wonder how I could slide into someone’s DM and expect it to happen. I literally fear men who parade and lick their lips 24/7,” she wrote.

“I prefer to meet my man in real life in a circle where I can trace their background. You could even meet your death in the name of LOVE,” she concluded.

Just a few days ago, the singer admitted to having misbehaved resulting in a clash with one of her baby daddies at a train station in Basel, Switzerland.

The mother of five took to social media, recounting how she clashed with her baby daddy over the custody of their son, Ojwang.

Akothee had planned with her favourite baby daddy, Wuon Oyoo, to take Ojwang with her, only for the child’s father to deny her the chance in Basel.
