Mugithi singer Samuel Muchoki alias Samidoh was taken aback by netizens who referred to him as 'mubabaz'.

'Mubabaz' is a sheng word for a sugar daddy - a rich, older man who gives money and other material things to a young woman in exchange for sex, friendship etc.

Marion Wachira referred to Samidoh as a mubabaz while commenting on his Facebook post.

"Mubaba wa karenzo na edday," Wachira wrote.

In a quick rejoinder, Samidoh laughed off the comment but wondered how he even qualified to be called a mubabaz.

The Mugithi singer said he was still young to be called a mubabaz, further claiming he was a 'one man guitar'.

"Marion Wachira Mimi mtoto mdogo tu one man guitar nimefika miaka ya kuitwa mbabaz?" Samidoh posed.


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 badly 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.
