Mugithi Singer Samuel Muchoki alias Samidoh is out here celebrating his baby mama and nominated Senator Karen Nyamu as she turns a year older.
The singer used his socials to share a photo posing with Nyamu- accompanied by a cute Birthday message.
This is the first time; Samidoh is celebrating and acknowledging Karen Nyamu in public. For Years has always shied away from sharing Karen Nyamu’s photos on his social media pages, despite her flaunting him from time to time.
“Look alike favourite scorpio, I will not play it safe. Happy Birthday @KarenNyamu,” read Samido’s message to Karen Nyamu’s
Nyamu is always proud to be dating Samidoh and just the other day she mentioned that she hasn’t broken any law by being in love with the singer. She mentioned that the Kenyan law permits polygamy.
"Sheria ya polygamy ambayo imepitishwa kwa Bunge yetu, sijavunja sheria yoyote kukuwa katika situation mimi niko," she said in an interview with NTV.
(There is a law on polygamy that was passed in our Parliament. I have not broken any law in my 'situation').
Parliament passed a bill allowing men to marry multiple wives in March 2014.
The bill passed on March 20, 2014, amended the marriage legislation and formalized customary law about marrying more than one person.
The proposed bill had initially given the first wife the right to approve her husband's choice for a second wife, but male MPs united and pushed through amendments that expunged the clause.
"When you marry an African woman, she must know the second one is on the way, and a third wife … this is Africa," Suna East MP Junet Mohammed said during a debate.
Polygamy is practiced widely in Kenya as is in many African countries by many traditional communities.
It is also acceptable among the Muslim community, whose Sharia law ich allows a man to marry up to four wives but with the first wife's consent.
Nyamu urged the youth to be who they want to be by doing what they know is right rather than taking to pleasing people.
The senator legislature has been in a relationship with Samidoh despite the musician being married to Edday Nderitu.
Edday, however, said in July that she was not in a polygamous marriage and that she had left Samidoh and relocated with her children to the United States, where she currently lives.
It followed a number of public confrontations that nearly turned physical during Samidoh's concerts.
Edday clarified on her Facebook page that she's no longer in a marriage with the musician.
She said her decision to leave Kenya was to save her children from the toxic environment.
"I have managed to sustain my kids' needs so far with no help and I am not regretting any bit. I don't need any drama, I need peace," Edday shared.
She further confessed that she wanted a low-key marriage but the singer turned their relationship into a public affair by going public with Nyamu.
Edday said this caused things to be quite dramatic.
"I left the husband for whoever needed him more," the mother of three added.
