She went on to state that she has walked out of other relationships and the current breakup should not be a shocker to her fans and followers.

"It's just a personal decision, I need time to concentrate on my new Found happiness with less destruction, I need to work on myself and my career, I am not ready for any commitment," Akothee said in part.
