As a trained police officer, Mugithi crooner Samuel Muchoki, better known as Samidoh, knows that a gun, his tool of trade, cannot trigger itself.

Someone has to do it, but at least not in the way lawyer and politician Karen Nyamu pulled the trigger on social media firestorm when she went public on their past affair and secret family.

Months after Ms Nyamu denied that she was in a relationship with the Murata Wa Ngai hit singer, saying their relationship was purely platonic, everything came to light Tuesday.

The mother of two confirmed that she had a baby with the married man, saying the singer has been living in denial for months.

Law on truth

With several ‘shots’ on Instagram, the advocate of the High Court of Kenya taught the law enforcer that the law on truth is ‘very clear’.

This led the singer to come clean on the relationship and publicly apologise to his family and fans after Ms Nyamu shared a video of him sharing a moment with their child.

In his apology shared on social media, Samidoh admitted to having a “friendship” with the former Nairobi woman rep candidate, which led to the birth of their son.

The singer said he would support his child both emotionally and financially.

He, however, mentioned that he has never left his wife of 11 years, Edith ‘Edday’ Nderitu, for another woman.


“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 apologised to her and my family before. I now apologise to you my fans for setting a bad example,” he added.

The father of three further said he regretted his mistake but said he was still strong and happy in his marriage.

“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. #Godblessus #Godblessmymarriage #yoursupportialwaystreasure,” he added.

In a rejoinder hours after the sensational Kikuyu singer posted his apology, Ms Nyamu termed Samidoh’s explanation on secret relationship as “half-truth”, adding that apologising would only make him a slave.
