Nyamu mentioned in the Samidoh’s wife drama that she does not fight Samidoh’s wife because she is so helpful and has even helped her register a firm and is willing to assist her in acquiring the tenders.

Karen had a public spat with Samidoh in late February 2021 because he didn’t recognize her son. She demanded that Samidoh recognize her son and get her to wish.
