Musician Esther Akoth, popularly known as Akothee, has celebrated her firstborn daughter, Vesha Shillian Okello, with a heartfelt message as she marks her birthday.

In a letter she wrote to Vesha on Tuesday, the 43-year-old artist praised her daughter with affectionate names, calling her a disciplined child.

Akothee listed some of the major achievements her firstborn has attained so far, many of which she herself had not reached at that age.


"Dear Daughter, To the queen of my heart, my greatest friend and protector, CEO of Savy House, Director of Akothee Safaris, and mother of my grandchildren...," Akothee began her letter.

She continued, "You are the most disciplined child in Generation Z. At your age, I was already on the streets with one failed marriage and one failed relationship, with a bunch of kids in my arms, wandering around the world with little knowledge of how it would end. But here you are, with your job, your businesses, your warm beautiful home, your car, and most importantly, you as a person. I think you are the version of what my mother wanted, but fate chose me instead."

The mother of five went on to express her pride in Vesha and spoke about how she has been an inspiration to her.


She also expressed her immense love for her beautiful daughter and encouraged her to keep pushing forward.

"As you celebrate your birthday today, know that you inspire me. You are my role model. Mama, I know you receive some of the hate from my fans in denial, and doors have been slammed in your face for being Akothee's daughter. But dear, mama, we still win as a family. Just know that I love you dearly and will always climb mountains for you. Thank you so much for welcoming me and loving me as your mother," she wrote.

She concluded her letter by wishing her firstborn a happy birthday.
