The 41-year-old mother of five made the revelation on her Instagram stating that she is doing so to make her mother proud. Akothee who dropped out of school and got married instead is now terming her new chapter in life as ‘education at menopause.’
“When I was supposed to be in school, I decided to be a wife. Now instead of being a wife, I am now in school at old age, this life has no balance at all. But I must attain my degree for my mom,” she said.
