Personal Life

Karen Nyamu, whose full name is Karen Njeri Nyamu was born in Dem wa Mtaa area of Eastlands, Nairobi. The exact date of her birth is not clear thus we can’t verify Karen Nyamu’s age. Even so, she is believed to be in her 30s. 

Not much is known about her early childhood and her family. She once shared that she was the “black sheep” of her family as she was very rebellious. Plus, she’s also described her parents as “tough”. She is the second born in a family of four children.

Schooling

Details about Karen Nyamu’s high school and primary remain unknown. However, in a YouTube interview, Karen revealed that she was a bright but naughty student. As a result of that, she was demoted as a prefect. She went to the University of Nairobi and graduated with a Bachelor of Law (LLB).

Career

Karen Nyamu is a lawyer. She is an advocate of the High Court of Kenya and has her own law firm, Njeri Nyamu & Co Advocates. Karen also serves as the Director of Nairobi Water & Sewerage Company.

Karen Nyamu Politics

Away from that Karen Nyamu is a politician. She is a contestant for the Nairobi Senatorial seat in the upcoming general election. She is vying under a UDA (United Democratic Alliance) ticket. Karen Nyamu says nothing will stop her from winning this time around. She promises that if elected, Nairobians will feel the impact of the work of her leadership. 

This is not the first time Karen is vying for a political seat. In 2017, she was an aspirant for the Nairobi Women Representative seat under the Jubilee Party ticket. 

In all this, Karen Nyamu’s source of wealth has come under scrutiny particularly with her rapid rise in politics. In an interview with an online YouTube channel, Karen Nyamu disclosed that she received funding from family, friends, clients and business people. 

Karen Nyamu rubbished claims that she has political godfathers who have propelled her career. She admitted to knowing William Ruto and Mike Sonko but denied that both elevated her political and legal career.  

That aside, Karen Nyamu’s nomination to the County Executive Committee by former Governor of Nairobi Mike Mbuvi "Sonko" to handle the Agriculture docket raised eyebrows. 

Social media users questioned her character and ability to lead the docket. This after Karen Nyamu’s photos smoking weed and twerking video circulated online. Some people attributed her nomination to her close ties to Nairobi city’s former boss. 

Relationship

Karen Nyamu is not married and doesn’t intend to. She says she loves having children and a family but that does not include marriage. 

Karen Nyamu’s relationships have all been unsuccessful. She revealed that she once dated a violent politician who was married. That affair changed her perspective on men and marriage. 

Karen Nyamu’s highly publicised relationships have been with Samidoh and DJ Saint Kelvin. She’s since parted ways with her baby daddy’s and is now just co-parenting with them.

Karen Nyamu & DJ Saint Kelvin 

DJ Saint Kevin and Karen Nyamu dated a few years ago and broke up due to constant fights. The DJ said that he did not want to raise their daughter under such circumstances. Regardless, both are on good terms. The DJ even described Karen Nyamu as a good mother.

Karen Nyamu & Samodih

As for her relationship with Samidoh, Karen Nyamu has had to defend allegations that she deliberately dated the musician to break his marriage. Their affair attracted a lot of media attention. For the most part, Karen Nyamu was the one all over the place dishing the dirt on their affair. 

Find out more on the controversy section below. 

Away from DJ Saint and Samidoh, Karen Nyamu has been accused of dating rich married men. Karen Nyamu has been linked with slain businessman Jacob Juma. She’s also been linked with ex-Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi “Sonko”. Karen Nyamu has denied all allegations.   

Family

Karen Nyamu is a mother of two and expecting a third. She has a son with Mugithi singer Sam Muchoki popularly known as Samidoh and a daughter, the firstborn with DJ Saint Kevin.

Controversy

Recently, Karen Nyamu has come under fire for her “chuma” remarks whilst on a UDA (United Democratic Alliance) campaign. She said she spoke on behalf of women as she rallied voters to support Deputy President William Ruto. Kenyans faulted her comments as the word “chuma” carries sexual connotations. 

Karen Nyamu remains unapologetic for her remarks. She said that her opponents were sexualising her comments even when analogies are commonly used in politics.  

On her love life

Karen Nyamu’s love life has been the talk of the town. Her fallout with popular Mugithi singer Samidoh played out in public. The two had an affair which resulted in the birth of their son, Sam Muchoki Jnr. Samidoh is married and for some time, both denied dating rumours. 

Eventually, Samidoh admitted to having an affair with Karen Nyamu. Social media went ablaze and Ms Nyamu was labelled a homewrecker. Karen Nyamu insisted that she did not know Samidoh was a married man and had no intentions of breaking Samidoh’s marriage. 

Karen Nyamu reveals son

As the drama between Samidoh and Karen Nyamu escalated, Karen Nyamu posted a video of his son on her Instagram page. It was after she shared the video that Samidoh was forced to come clean about their affair.

In an interview with an online show, Karen Nyamu stated that she revealed the son to give him legitimacy and protect him from online abuse. This forced Samidoh to recognize his son publicly after months of denial. 

Samidoh penned a letter to Karen Nyamu. He promised to care for their son. Samidoh apologised to his family and wife for “letting them down”. 

However, in the same letter, he pointed out that the timing of Karen Nyamu's video was malicious. He said it caused his wife and child unnecessary abuse.

Samidoh beats Karen Nyamu

In August 2021, Karen Nyamu was in the headlines again. This time, she accused Samidoh of domestic abuse. In an Instagram video, she revealed that the singer punched her in the face and damaged her iPhone 12 Max Pro which cost her KES 150,000. 

In a viral video, Karen Nyamu shared the Mugithi singer broke into her house and beat her on grounds she cheated on him. Karen Nyamu also revealed that she was pregnant with Samidoh’s child. 

Karen Nyamu Njeri threatened to take legal action against Samidoh.

Karen Nyamu apology

At the centre of Karen Nyamu and Samidoh’s drama, is Samidoh’s wife, Edith "Edday" Nderitu. She rarely makes headlines but Samidoh’s wife did not keep quiet on this. In a cryptic post, Edith posted “the devil is a woman”. Although she did not mention Karen Nyamu, social media concluded that the message was intended for the lawyer.  

We haven’t seen Karen Nyamu and Edith engage in a public spat. In fact, Karen Nyamu has been apologetic throughout the drama. She maintained that she wasn’t out to break Samidoh’s marriage. 

Also, Karen Nyamu is not interested in being Samidoh’s second wife. She is contented with Samidoh acknowledging their son and wants him to stay in his marriage. 

Samidoh and Karen Nyamu video

Just as the dust settled on Karen Nyamu and Samidoh’s relationship drama, a video surfaced online of the two flirting at an undisclosed location. This raised eyebrows and was seen as a push by Ms Nyamu to get in the way of Samidoh's relationship. 

Flying together

After all the drama that unfolded, Karen Nyamu was on the defensive again. This time, she was explaining why she and her baby daddy Samidoh were flying out together after she posted her tickets beside Samidoh’s. As per Karen Nyamu, both were headed for different destinations and Dubai was just a connection flight.  

She also took the opportunity to throw jabs at Samidoh. She feels that he doesn’t protect her from social media trolls thus has to do it all by herself. 

Photos of Karen Nyamu smoking weed

Karen Nyamu’s pictures of smoking weed at the Umeme Grounds in Ziwani were widely circulated online in 2019. The lawyer turned politician was attending the finals of the famous Koth Biro tournament. 

Two years on, Karen Nyamu cleared the air over the photograph. In a YouTube interview, Ms Nyamu stated that she did it to impress the men around her as they were her political fans. Karen Nyamu claimed that she did not inhale weed and that she does not smoke weed. 

Karen Nyamu twerking

It seems like Karen Nyamu loves controversy. She even went the extra mile to create a twerking video to prove that she can whine her waist and shake her booty. As if that’s not enough, Karen Nyamu commented on her own video. “Aki nilichoma!” 

Karen Nyamu Car

In 2017, when Karen Nyamu vied for Nairobi Women Representative’s seat, she hired two SUV’s to run her campaigns. Later on, she allegedly refused to pay for one of the cars. Karen Nyamu agreed to pay KES 150,000 per month for the duration of her car use.

The owner of the cars, named Rodgers, reported the matter at Central Police Station. It’s not clear whether the second car was returned.

House

Samidoh was allegedly spotted at Karen Nyamu’s home before their affair went public. Samidoh was visiting his son. Thereafter, a short video surfaced online with the musician holding the baby. This further strengthened the rumours about their affair before it all blew up.  

Net Worth

Karen Nyamu’s net worth is approximated to be $2 to $5 million. She makes her money from her career as a lawyer and politician. Karen Nyamu’s salary from both pursuits is unclear.
