Samidoh is living proof of the Bible verse that says, “So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith with the wife of your youth. “I hate divorce,” says the LORD God of Israel” and while it might seem like a misnomer for me to quote the Bible about a philanderer bare with me as I make my reasons bare.
You see, the Kikuyu Benga crooner was involved in one of the most public scandals of the year as his illicit affair with Karen Nyamu was exposed for all to see and then they subsequently had a love-child together.
He was not too smart in the way he allowed the affair to play out in public because he let his clandestine lover or clande to insult his wife. This fed Karen Nyamu’s hubris as she believed he would eventually drop Edday Nderitu and shack up with her. And boy did she unload some choice salvos at her love rival.
But when push came to shove, Samidoh was forced to put his foot down and choose one. I was of the opinion he should have been proactive all along which would have allowed him to become a polygamous man through a seamless transition but he fumbled the ball and had to drop Karen Nyamu.
This is proof that when a man’s back is pressed to the wall and he has to choose a woman to keep, he will always go for his young love, the wife of his youth who was with him even before he had anything of note.
This was his first love, while he was still a bumbling young man. This was the woman who had accepted to be with him before the fame and notoriety. She was the woman who had chosen to be with him in spite of all her other suitors.
Whenever Samidoh looks at her, he sees all the hopes and dreams of his young life that have come to pass and he looks at her with wife goggles on in wonderment and amazement. That is not something any clande can hope to imitate.
And he is exactly an example of what men look at when it comes to deciding whether or not to leave their partners. But you know, keep deluding yourselves that men treat the wife of their youth with the same consideration they the women who came into their lives after they were established.
