She added that the break will last until January 15, 2024 when she hopes to be back.

"With this in mind, I have decided to take some time off and stay away from all networks until January 15, 2024. This trip will allow me to recharge, reorganize and remind myself. It is an important step to ensure that I can continue to give the best of me to all of you." Akothee explained.


Not compromising on the quality of the content and experiences

She added that she fully understands the importance of being fully present and giving her best without compromising the quality of her content and experience that have made her a darling of many on social media.

“I want to express my gratitude for your unwavering support and understanding during this time. Your encouragement means the world to me, and I believe that this break will ultimately allow me to come back stronger and more inspired.

“I understand the importance of being fully present and giving my best, and I don't want to compromise on the quality of the content and experiences I share with you. I trust that you'll respect my need for this break, and I look forward to reconnecting with you all in the new year, refreshed and ready for new adventures.” Akothee added.
