Singer Esther Akoth aka Akothee has shared little-known details about her relationship with Raila Odinga’s wife Dr Ida Odinga.
On Thursday, Akothee penned an appreciation message to Ida Odinga, revealing how supportive she has been towards her.
The singer termed Ida as her biggest Cheerleader – always cheer her up during her low seasons.
She mentioned that she has always shared good and bad news with Ida – from her pregnancy, engagement, and even miscarriage.
“My cheerleader, Her Excellency DR Ida Betty Odinga
“When I met Omosh, I broke the news to her. When Omosh engaged me and set a date for my wedding she was the first to get the news before anyone else.
“When I got pregnant at 6 weeks, I called her and told her. Mum, we are pregnant," she said in part.
Adding that; “First she laughed, then congratulated me. She understands me just like A mother would understand her daughter, she knows I crave love, and therefore, her door is open for me 24/7, When we lost the pregnancy, at 10 weeks, she called and we talked a lot, I felt better 🙏,”.
The award-winning singer also disclosed that she met Ida Odinga together with her hubby and she had a lot of questions about him.
“On the 3rd, We made a visit for introduction and he liked Omosh, mama will tell you NO for NO without mincing her words. She asked a lot about @misteromosh, including his background and family.
“I assured her I have met his family however the family are not social media people. They live a very private quiet life, and what was scary for Omosh's mother was introducing Omosh to my fans. 3m was too much,".
In her post, Akothee mentioned that Ida was more than willing to attend her wedding with Omosh.
“We invited Mama for the wedding and Boom without mincing her words
“Akothee I will come for your wedding. May God bless min piny. Osiepna nyar kumabor Tam tam mar Baba. I love you, mom
Be blessed for always raising my spirit,” Akothee signed off.
