  • Famous mugithi singer Samuel Muchoki popularly known as Samidoh on Tuesday, March 2 issued a statement in which he acknowledged being in a romantic relationship with Nairobi politician Karen Nyamu. 

    Samidoh admitted that he had sired a child with Nyamu - saying he continues to love and support his daughter both emotionally and materially.

    He, however, dismissed speculation that he had left his wife to start a family with the former Nairobi CEC. 

    "I have put my family and myself in a bad situation. It is true I had a relationship with Miss Karen Nyamu... I have never left my wife of 11 years for another woman, " read Samidoh's Facebook post.

    He also apologized for setting a bad example to his fans.

    “I apologize to you my fans for setting a bad example. I take full responsibility for my mistakes which I regret,” he added.

    Before the dust could settle, Nyamu issued a statement of her own, condemning the musician's apology to his wife and asked him not to disown her. 

    "Till when will you run away from reality? It was easier to declare the whole truth not half because you will be a slave of making apologies. You have done nothing wrong," the city politician said in a rejoinder. 

    The relationship drama has dominated social media for the past week after Nyamu posted a video of her daughter bonding with Samidoh. 

    The drama took an ugly twist after the musician's fans started taking sides with personalized attacks against both Nyamu and Samidoh's wife. 

    In October 2020, the Mugithi star had denied having dated Nyamu, saying that she was one of his many die-hard fans.

    “I have a wife with children, and I do not want another one with the current economy. I have not been dating her, she has just been my big fan for a long time,” said Samidoh.
