Over the weekend, Kenyans were treated to another episode of the AfroSinema series starring celebrity musician Samidoh, his first wife Edday, and his baby mama Karen Nyamu.
It all started when Nyamu shared photos on social media while in the company of Samidoh during the burial of Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua’s sister-in-law in Murang’a County last week.
This prompted Edday to write a heartfelt post indicating she was fed up with her husband’s actions. She said the last three years of their 15-year marriage have been full of pain.
“I have remained faithful to you regardless of disrespect, humiliation and being trolled on social media…you’ve made me look dumb and took my silence for granted,” she wrote.
“I have helped you nurture your talent and supported you through it all, but one thing I have said to you and I am saying here again I will not raise my kids in a polygamy family [sic], especially with a woman who is older than me by more than 10yrs, has no morals and zero respect to my family.”
As the drama unfolded over the weekend, an old video of Samidoh speaking to a reporter emerged online. In the clip, Samidoh revealed Edday cheated on him and he forgave her.
The singer said Edday was his first love and attributed his ability to forgive her to the grace of God.
“Na ule mwenye alikuheart break?” the interviewer asked.
“Ni huyu tu nko na yeye. Sina ex mimi. I married my first love si wote tulisumbuana lakini tukaona badala ya kuenda kutafuta ingine nkarudi,” Samidoh said.
The clip caught the attention of Edday, who laughed off Samidoh’s cheating claims.
“Is there a man who can stay with a woman after cheating?” Edday commented.
