Musician, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Esther Akothee has opened up on the challenges she undergoes trying to co-parent with her 3 baby daddies.
According to her, the whole ordeal is an uphill task not meant for the faint-hearted and those not financially stable.
"Co-parenting is not easy. There is no day a month will pass without you crying. I'm telling you the truth," stated the mother of five.
The singer went on to add that if anyone claimed to not have issues with their previous partner whom they share a kid with and are co-parenting together then that person is lying.
"If you meet a baby mama who is not being made to cry by the baby daddy or a baby daddy who is not being made to cry by the baby mama, it's a lie.
As a baby mama, you will cry until the day the kids grow up. And you will still cry with them growing up.
You will call that man to your kid's wedding, and he will refuse to come. Will that not hurt you?" An agitated Akothee stated before posing the question to all those tuned into her live session.
On the different drama's she has encountered with her different baby daddy's (she has 3) Akothee, narrated how her Swiss baby daddy sometimes can be difficult to the extent of refusing to pay for their son's plane tickets back home just to spite her.
Luckily, she adds, she has found so much love in her manager and ex-boyfriend Nelly Aoks that she chooses to focus on that rather than the drama being thrown her way.
Akothee, added that the fact that she is stable right now makes things so much better as she is not tied begging anyone.
"These days, I only watch with my eyes. I don't allow him to hurt him. Do not think he has stopped hurting me. He has not. It's because I have my own coins so I can cover a lot of things. When he refuses to pay flight tickets for the kid, it's him trying to upset me.
He expects me to call him so that we start insulting each other. I am so busy with Nelly Oaks I do not have time to insult him. I gave him a cold silence," Akothee said.
The musician went on to detail that sometimes chasing after these men can be so futile and draining. Walking down memory lane, she recalled an instance where she had sued her first baby daddy, whom she shares 3 daughters with for child support only for the case to blow up in her face.
"Some of us had to swallow our pride. We found out that pride does not work. I walked to the children's court thinking I am a mother. I have it all. The man came with an encyclopaedia, showing he only earns Sh 9000 a month after all his deductions and he has another family. He defended himself. I was left in the light with three of my kids," Akothee dramatically narrated.
