Samidoh was asked to pay Karen Nyamu's dowry nearly three weeks after he arrived in the US to visit his first family.

Fans commenting on Samidoh's Facebook post confronted him with the suggestion of paying a dowry for Karen Nyamu.

A netizen by the name of Angel N Shantel told Samidoh that he would forever remain an orphan who is being kept by a sugar mummy if he does not pay Karen Nyamu's dowry.

"#Samidoh until you pay dowry to Karen Nyamu...itabaki kuwa Mtoto Yatima Amewekwa na Mumama," Angel N Shantel told Samidoh.

Samidoh laughed off Angel N Shantel's comment saying that Kenyans are full of wonders. He however didn't state if he would think about the suggestion of paying Karen Nyamu's dowry.

"Angel N Shantel Aki Kenyans🤣," Samidoh responded.


Samidoh, who is married to Edday Nderitu, has been dating Karen Nyamu on/off - albeit in secret at the beginning.

The two lovebirds met while he was performing at a political event in late 2019 and they quickly hit it off.

Nyamu didn’t waste time getting pregnant for him. She gave birth to Samidoh’s son in December 2020.

Samidoh publicly denied that he was Karen’s baby daddy for months until January 2021 when Nyamu spilled the beans.

The Mugithi singer publicly apologized to his wife after Nyamu exposed him as her baby daddy. However, Nyamu didn’t stop there, she got pregnant for Samidoh again and gave birth to a baby girl on February 26, 2022.

Nyamu and Samidoh's on/off relationship sometimes played out bad in public.

The two lovebirds had a dramatic breakup in Dubai in December 2022 before they got back together.

Samidoh and Nyamu indicated they were back together on February 23, 2023, when joined the family of Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua in paying their last respects to his sister-in-law.

Samidoh's wife Edday Nderitu came out guns blazing after the Mugithi sensation was spotted in the company of his baby mama at the burial of Gachagua's sister-in-law in Murang'a.

Edday penned an emotional message on her Facebook page suggesting that she would walk out of her marriage as she stressed that she couldn't raise her children in a polygamous marriage.

Samidoh and Nyamu were unmoved by Edday's message as they once again made a joint appearance at the burial of the singer's nephew Geoffrey Mwathi in Nakuru on March 8, 2023.

At the ceremony, the singer introduced Nyamu by their daughter's name (Mama Wairimu) when he asked her to greet mourners.

Edday and her three children left for the US in early May 2023.

On July 22, 2023, Edday publicly announced that she had made a conscious decision to remove herself and her children from a toxic environment.

The mother of three specifically said that her teenage daughter was 'a direct recipient of unbelievable behaviour displayed'.

The mother of three further stated that she was not in a polygamous marriage, adding that she had left her husband Samidoh to 'whoever needed him more'.

Edday additionally disclosed that she had managed to sustain her children's needs without any help.

"Lemmie clarify few things that were shared online and not accurate…… I am not in any polygamous marriage as stated I left the husband for whoever needed him more. I made a decision to remove myself and my kids from that toxic environment especially my teen daughter who unfortunately is direct recipient of unbelievable  behavior displayed …I have managed to sustain my kids needs so far with no help and I am not regretting any bit of it. About communication and video calls I will leave that one there since some people seems to be present when that is happening but I’m  not aware. In this new season of my life I don’t need any drama, I need peace only ,I hope next episode of this series my name will be left out. #nothingbutprayers #powerofprayers," Edday wrote on her Facebook account.
