Akothee is one woman who inspires many women and girls alike.
Her ‘take no prisoners’, ‘gung ho’ and ‘my way or the highway’ attitude have earned her many fans and critics alike.
What impresses many about the single mother of 5 is her will to not only survive but also thrive and make it against all odds. Which she has done splendidly!
But it seems that even the iron lady is proving that she might be human too! She recently posted a cryptic message on her Instagram page detailing how she needed to take a break. She wrote yesterday that her Cologne show would be her last ‘due to very sensitive issues within my organization’.
She added that she needed to fix herself first because she felt that if she didn’t take that radical step that she would lose everything as a mother, an artist, an entrepreneur, an entertainer, and as a mentor.
She went on to say that she could not motivate her followers if she was broken and down. The singer also went to explain that the trip to Europe had been eye-opening for her as she realized that the path she was on would lead her to an early grave.
She, however, showed that her fighting spirit was still indomitable saying that she would take the hiatus to fix her troubles. Could the enterprising singer be a victim of burn out as she alluded to in her post?
Akothee was twice last year admitted to hospital and given compulsory bedrest for fatigue.
She isn’t the only celeb who has had issues of burnout in her career. Kanye West was famously hospitalised in 2016 for exhaustion in 2016. The ‘love lockdown’ singer was also suffering from sleep deprivation.
