Famed vernacular star Samwel Muchoki popularly known as Sammidoh is caught up in a love triangle and the results might be damaging.
Sammidoh recently took to social media admitting to the fact that he fathered a child outside of his marriage. The ‘Mumbi’ crooner was engaged in an extra-marital affair with Director of Nairobi Water & Sewerage Company Karen Nyamu. The twosome’s interactions became public fodder when Nyamu shared baby bump photos that she was pregnant in October 2020. In an attempt to save his reputation, reports confirmed Samidoh refuted the rumors and said that he was forced to cut friendship with Karen Nyamu after people started saying that they were dating.
And now, it seems that Sammidoh might have some regrets on how he handled the relationships with both women.
Taking to Instagram, he shared an apology with the public. He wrote, “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.”
He went on to deny the seriousness of his relationship with Karen, and instead reaffirmed his commitment to the marriage. He added, “I am however perturbed by the motive and timing of these past videos which have led 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.”
His post may have been with good intentions however it seems he only fanned the flames on social media. Many wonder what was the point in making a public apology, and where that new developments leave his relationship with the politician Nyamu.
Sammidoh has had a great career so far, with many more hits expected from him. He is slated to perform this weekend in Kasarani on March 5th.
Sammidoh met his wife Edith Nderitu at a young age, now the high school sweethearts have 2 children together after several years together.
