Self-declared president of single mothers Akothee finally opened up about her relationship with her sister Cebbie.
The mother of five decided to address the issue after Cebbie did an interview where she claimed it is normal to have sibling rivalry.
Akothee and her sister were not always in bad terms, and the singer would always defend her baby sister. However, everything changed when Edgar Obare revealed leaked screenshots between Cebbie and lover.
From the screenshots, Cebbie was rubbishing Akothee’s name and even claimed she is broke. The pro gas ambassador further insinuated that Akothee lies about her finances.
However, Cebbie later did an interview and claimed she was ok with Akothee. She further termed the experience as part of sibling rivalry.
All this while, Akothee was silent up until she decided to share her thoughts on sisterhood. According to her, sibling rivalry doesn’t always exist, and in her words, it is a cover-up for jealousy. She further cautioned her fans against trying to compete with their siblings.
“Treat them the way you’d treat your mother. There is nothing like sibling rivalry. It’s a cover-up for jealousy. Never try to compete with someone older than you. They are still your senior.”
Akothee further wished she had an older sister who she could rely on and trust. The singer also added that she only feels her kids are safe when they are with her mother.
Akothee also added that people change with time. She urged others to also take care of those who raised them.
According to the singer, even if one is rich, people still want gifts. She further explained that gifts mean a lot because it signifies you thought of the person.
“Give back a hand to those who saw you grow. If your elderly sister saw you through education and now you are working, please, shop for her if not every month, then at least two times a year 🙏 surprise her even if she is rich or stable, buy her small things like Dera,lesos, cloths ( by the way, rich people appreciate gifts, not because they can’t buy, but simply because, someone has thought about them ).”
Akothee concluded by urging her fans to draw lines between families. She acknowledged that some family members do not know where the line is, and the line must be clear. According to her, if everything fails, then take a step back and love your siblings from afar.
