On Monday, April 10, she got married to her lover, Dennis Schweizer alias Omosh in a private wedding at the Windsor Hotel in Nairobi.
The two lovebirds met while Akothee was on vacation in Switzerland in July 2022 and got engaged three months later.
“I have tried getting married three times, but it never worked out. I was only once married once to the father of my children. The other two white exes I was with, never married me
“At some point I thought I would get married to the father of my third child, but it turned out to be an extreme sport being with him,” Akothee said at her wedding.

The ceremony followed a private dowry ceremony was held in February that year.
