Singer Samidoh Muchoki has finally come clean on his relationship with City Politician Karen Nyamu after months of speculation. In a long social media post, the father of three admitted to having a relationship with Nyamu and had a son together. While saying he put his family in a bad situation, he affirmed that he would fully support Nyamu's son both emotionally and materially.
"I am sorry! I have put my family and myself in a bad situation. It is true I had a friendship with Ms. Karen Nyamu and its this involvement that led to the birth of an innocent child whom I have and will always support both emotionally and materially. I am a proud father to my children," he said.
Samidoh's apology comes days after his wife Eddah and Nyamu had a heated exchange online following a video posted by the politician of the singer carrying their son while singing for him. In his post, Samidoh condemned the videos' timing, adding that it led to his wife and child being trolled on social media.
"I am however perturbed by the motive and timing of these past videos which have led to unnecessary trolling of the child and my wife, I have never left my wife of 11 years for another woman. I apologized to her and my family before.
Following Samidoh's morning post, Nyamu came our claiming the singer did not put out the whole truth and even warned him against becoming a slave to apologies.
"It was easier to declare the whole truth and not just half of it because you will soon become a slave to apologies. You have done nothing wrong babe," Nyamu said.
Samidoh and Nyamu relationship
There had been speculations in the last few months that the two were intimately involved, especially after Karen posted a video of her and Samidoh in Dubai having a good time. During an interview with Radio Jambo, Nyamu said the video was blown out of proportion and that she even pulled it down because she didn’t have any ill intentions.
“Samidoh is my friend. I thought I just post the video just like you post your other friends. However, people started commenting, bringing in different angles, like about Samidoh’s wife, and so I decided to pull it down. I didn’t have any bad intention, plus Samidoh is his own brand, and I didn’t want to tarnish it. We were in Dubai where Sonko and other politicians were too, and we were staying around the same area,” she said.
Samidoh has also denied dating Karen in the past, stating that she was among his many die-hard fans. However, the singer revealed that he had to cut ties with Karen after realizing their newfound friendship could harm his family.
“I have a wife with children, and I do not intend to get another one with the current economy. I have not been dating her, she has just been my big fan for a long time. I am surprised by the whole story. They claim I even attended her baby shower na sikua at Nairobi. I have not even met her for over three months after I cut ties with her since I realized our friendship would affect my family,” said Samidoh.
