Singer and businesswoman Esther Akoth popularly known as Akothee has penned down an emotional letter to her three daughters, Rue Baby, Fancy Makadia and Vesha Shillan.
In the letter, the mother of five asked the daughter to be careful of the people around them, especially friends who are about the same age as they are, because they will always find reasons to dim their stars.
The singer asked his daughters to focus more on building themselves and do things that they will live to appreciate.
“To the women I gave birth to, You are pretty, You are brilliant, You are kind, You are disciplined, You are Successful, You are blessed. It’s difficult for most of your age mates to understand why it’s you, for that they will find reasons to dim this light.
“Please mum be careful with the people around you, especially women and women at your age? Sometimes, I don’t know where you are, but my spirit is moving around with you. Just know I will always stand by you even when your world trusts to come down
“Concentrate more on building your own self, yes I gave you a platform, but it’s not your end goal nor your destiny. Pull yourself and do great things that your feature will appreciate you for,” said Akothee.
She went on to state that they should not listen to any naysayers because they are not their enemies but cheerleaders who admire what they are doing.
Akothee said that they need the people supporting them and those insulting them, because the insulting ones only make them more famous.
She added that these are individuals who are bitter at themselves because they cannot do what her daughters are doing, and that they should treat everyone equal, and also love themselves more than anybody else.
“Let the noise from the internet be a sweet music to your ears, those are not your enemies ,they are your cheer leaders/they admire you, imagine performing without an audience? You need those supporting you and those insulting you, that’s the only way you will strike a balance in life
“Those who insult you makes you more famous, they make you interesting for you are doing something they are not capable of, you are a reflection of what they would want to be, it’s just that it’s not coming for them. They are not bitter with you, they are bitter with their lives, pray for them have fun you have a life
“Treat everyone equal, love yourself more than anyone else. Treat yourself the way you would want to be treated. Life is short. Above All, I am your mother, I am here, I am the only woman who would like to see you do better than me I LOVE YOU,” she said.
