By Neema Amani October 2nd, 2023 2 min read

Kenyan artist Akothee, who had been going by the name “Mrs Schweizer” on social media following her grand wedding to Swiss national Denis Schweizer, has deleted the name and reverted to her Akothee Kenya title.

This move comes almost six months after her lavish wedding.

In a recent social media post, Akothee expressed gratitude to those who supported her during a challenging period of her life. She revealed that she had been healing in private and undergoing therapy for the past two months.

Akothee shared that she had gone through a traumatic experience, which left her shaken and emotionally unstable. She mentioned that she experienced days without food and sleep and questioned herself while maintaining her public image, family, and business.

“I started by monitoring my behaviors, I realised I was breaking down quite often for no reason, even just a simple interview. I had become emotionally unstable, and I couldn’t put a finger on it. I never knew about emotional abuse until I started therapy,” Akothee revealed.

She thanked her close friends, family, especially her children, and her best friend, Nellyoaks, for being pillars of strength during this time. She highlighted the importance of monitoring her own behavior and recognizing emotional instability. Akothee also mentioned that she had sought therapy to address her emotional state.

“I have come out of a very dangerous zone and have been healing in private. I am in my second month of therapy. The trauma I went through after finding out the truth and some ugly stuff that left me shaking,” she said.

She requested her fans to stay calm, continue praying for her and her family, and respect her privacy during this healing process. Akothee assured her followers that she would return with good news once she was stable enough to share more.

“Please, bloggers, I know this is some sweet gossip, but I ask you to give me some private moment. Allow me to go through this, and once everything is okay and I am stable enough to talk about it, I will be back with good news,” She wrote.

Adding, “We are fixing some stuff off-camera. I don’t want to hurt anyone, not even you reading this, not at all. I love you.”

Fans and followers on social media showed their support and encouragement, applauding her for seeking help and wishing her a full recovery.
