By now you already know about the shitshow that is the relationship between Mugiithi singer Samidoh and political socialite and sometime lawyer, Karen Nyamu.

The two have had a storied love life even though they haven’t even seen half a decade together. And as a result, they have become a mainstay on gossip tabloid and entertainment rags.

But what is worrying is the fact that the two, Samidoh and Karen Nyamu  have reportedly had a physical altercation that could have escalated to the point of tragedy.

According to the sometime lawyer, she was the victim of her musician “husband’s” wrath after he accused her of cheating on him while pregnant with his child.

On the police officer cum singer’s (in Kenya this term is loosely used) side of things, he swung into action even though he is unsure as to whether or not she had indeed cheated or was in Mombasa with her coworkers or a lover.

However, one has to wonder whether this is not something we could have foreseen: not the violence part but rather the nasty breakup.

Samidoh and Karen Nyamu do not understand that how a relationship starts is exactly how it will end; if it started under a shroud of controversy and secrecy, then that is precisely how it will end -in scandal.

Samidoh and Karen Nyamu started by hiding everything under the cover of darkness. They operated behind his wife, Eddah Nderitu’s back. And now they have to contend with everything coming to light.

The love drunk fool of a singer was eager to disregard every warning he was given about the political socialite’s reputation. And now he is reaping the outcome of his willful ignorance.

Do we really want to mourn this couple? What we should do instead is to point at them and laugh. Let the rain beat them into a pulp. Pun unintended.
