Celebrated Mugithi singer Samuel Muchoki, better known as Samidoh, has apologized to his family and fans after cheating on his wife with Nairobi politician Karen Nyamu.
Through social media on Tuesday, Samidoh admitted that his clandestine relationship with Nyamu led to the birth of a child, whom he is taking care of.
“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,” said Samidoh.
The Wendo Wi Cama hit-maker spoke out after a video of him holding his baby with Nyamu went viral on social media. The clip was first shared by Nyamu on Instagram.
“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,” said Samidoh.
He added: “I now apologize to you my fans for setting a bad example. I take full responsibility for my mistakes which I regret. We have had our own shares of ups and downs but we are stronger and happy together.”
Nyamu, a lawyer by profession, is a former Nairobi Woman Representative aspirant.
