    "In 2017 if suicide was a pass, I would have done it. This man decided to turn my life upside down, most baby daddies who create scenes and drama are the ones who have never moved on.

    "A child always has one biological father and one biological mother, and nothing can ever change this," stated Akothee during the conference.

    The singer urged girls who had attended the conference that pregnancy was the consequence of engaging in sex and they had to face it if it happened.

    She went on to encourage girls to be firm and take care of their babies should the father decline to take responsibility.

    Back in 2017, Akothee opened up on how his baby daddy who she identified as Markus, pushed her to abort the pregnancy.

    "When he came to Kenya the pregnancy was 4 months and already visible, I was so sick that I could not even walk, we went with him to the hospital and he never wanted to be seen with me. So, my friend Nancy admitted me to a hospital as Markus waited in the car.

    "When he was asked for his details he said ‘put her mother’s names and phone number’. I was admitted for 3 days, he never visited me in hospital, he only came the last day to pay bills and we left," she said.

    After the ordeal, things took a turn for the worst as he started asking her to get rid of the pregnancy. But the singer did not listen to him and decided to carry the pregnancy to term.
