Edday Nderitu has addressed claims that her friend Bernice Saroni is wrecking her marriage to Mugithi singer Samidoh.
Netizens were alerted by Edday's post where she was seen posing with her Bernice and an unidentified male.
“Any man can be a father but it takes a real man to be a dad,” Edday captioned the post.
Many people interpreted Edday’s post as warming up to a new man in the US after being frustrated by Samdoh back at home.
Some critics blasted Edday saying she should do whatever she pleases without revealing her moves on social media.
“Umetuchosha sasa… Whatever move you want to take do it peacefully no one will stop you. Samidoh is not t..” Mary Martha commented on Edday’s post.
In a quick rejoinder, Edday told off Mary Martha saying she was not posting on her wall.
“Mary Martha nikipost kwa wall yako udelete,” Edday fired back.
Some netizens, however, warned Edday that her friend Bernice was wrecking her marriage to Samidoh.
"Najua mtasema ni wivu but am not here to praise Bernice yaani anataka Eddy aache Samidoh that is very wrong. Edday coka mucii ugarie guthondeka gwaku (rudi kwako ujaribu kutengeneza boma yako). You can't leave Sami because of marrying two wives. It rains everywhere," Kamau Mpesa told Edday.
In a quick rejoinder, Edday reminded Kamau about her earlier post where she talked about her stand on polygamy.
"Kamau Mpesa, do you remember that long post I made sometime back, only few understood what I meant," Edday told Kamau.
In a long post on Facebook on February 23, 2023, Edday suggested that she would walk out of her marriage after Samidoh reunited with Karen Nyamu.
The mother of three stressed that she couldn't raise her children in a polygamous setting.
"It has been exactly 15 years of marriage full of ups and down, it was humble beginning where little was enough for us, for the last 3years it has been nothing but pain, I have remained faithfull to you regardless of disrespect,humiliation and being trolled on social media ,you’ve made me look dumb and took my silence for granted, I have helped you nature 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, espeacilly with a woman who is older than me by more than 10yrs ,has no morals and zero respect to my family’kiura Kia ngaba’ as you put it,I have asked God every day to give me strength to pray for you but today I have nothing to tell God about you, you have drag and put me and my kids in an ocean of pain may you remember this day.#nothingbutprayers #eddaynderitu," Edday wrote.
Fallout with Samidoh
Edday has indicated all is not well with Samidoh through her recent actions.
She recently slammed Samidoh after he was seen goofing around with Karen Nyamu at home in a video that went viral on social media.
Edday poked fun at Samidoh wondering out loud whether her husband had been married.
"Imgn Sammy alilala kwa nyamu… but may your wish be granted," a netizen commented on Edday's TikTok post.
To which she replied; "Ameolewa kwani?"
Edday also celebrated herself on Father's Day.
Father’s Day is a holiday honouring one’s father, or relevant father figure, as well as fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society.
Edday snubbed Samidoh on Father's Day and opted to celebrate herself instead.
"For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7..HAPPY FATHERS DAY," Edday captioned her photo.
