She also shared a Facebook post where someone had also alleged that she (Akothee) had passed on, trying to show the public that social media has a tendency of “Killing” innocent people.

“LADY MOURINE IS STILL ALIVE 🙏🏾 I hope this is not the Akothee I am thinking of , IF its Akothee your Auntie or your sister then ,my condolences poleni
