Esther Akoth popularly known as Akothee took her time to advise women who think that having a baby with a white man automatically means that one becomes rich.
She shared a post on Instagram where she said that one of her baby daddies who is a white man does not provide child support for his son.
“I hear them say if you date a white guy or have children with them, you are automatically rich, well, one of my baby daddies is pure white and doesn’t understand the world of child support, he sees his son at his own convenient time, he actually pockets the monthly payments from the government meant to be for the child, we don’t scream over our challenges we smile through and turn stress into ideas, one day I asked him where his son sleeps, he said “where the mama sleeps & eat what mama eats) so, copy-paste my life and find many wrongs at your own risk.”
She, therefore, advised women to work hard for their money, as there is no guarantee that any man would provide money for child support.
She also warned people against calling women who have children with white men as prostitutes as that is not always the case
Akothee on her post mentioned Wuon oyoo as the real man she has ever met, and that all men are the same whether white or African. She added saying that the pain and load of a child are always left with the mother.
Akothee’s post is very educative especially to our young girls who have always thought that having a white man as a partner automatically mean that she would be rich. She has actually made it clear that most men are the same no matter the colour so it is somehow up to women to work hard in order to make a better life for themselves and their children.
