Akothee: How my ex-boyfriend blackmailed me with nude pictures, stole my money

Kenyan singer Akothee has revealed that her ex-boyfriend, whom she did not identify by name, had developed a habit of stealing from her.

Taking to her Instagram page recently, Akothee said the man stole expensive necklaces, money and a mobile from her.

The Give It To Me hit-maker further accused her ex-flame of passing on the stolen necklaces to his then-side lover.

Akothee further accused her ex-lover of blackmail, saying the man would threaten to share on social media her nude pictures every time she threatened to dump him.

“A man I dated in the past stole my expensive gold chains sold some and took some to his side chick. He always denied not having an affair. So, so one day they took a photo and forgot to take out the chain. Sema aibu! Every time I came home with my wallet, money was missing; yet we were just the two of us.

“He would start fights from nowhere, just to get to run away and come back when his well was dry. I did not know about Bluetooth. I had a very beautiful picture of mine in my birth suit. He stole my phone and transferred the picture to his phone.

“So, every time I wanted to dump him he would send the photo telling me: “Kumbuka nina siri zako nyingi.”

“I got so tired of this [expletive]. I just woke up one day and asked him to post the photo or I’d help him do it. He won’t let my phone rest (sic); he would scroll through all my WhatsApp conversations and attack me with messages from people I did not even know.

“I never have passwords on my phones because I am straight, but his, even when his phone rang, you had to key in a password to see who was calling.

“He would create drama over wanting to have a baby with me. ‘Baby, mbona hutaki kunizalia?’

“I would go behind the house, laugh and ask myself: ‘You can’t even take care of yourself! You think a baby is a teddy bear?’

“I was so worn out; I was very tired and unhappy. Every time I thought of dumping him, I felt so empty; I was weak to let go.

“Papa Ojwang wanted to beat him up; he could not stand seeing his baby mama sad. I had all the money in the world but was always feeling empty.

“I woke up one day and said enough is enough, I dumped his [expletive] like… Never to hear from him again, blocked him everywhere. Now I am breathing fresh air. Above all, he sees me only on breaking news. Women wake up!”
