Muigai wa Njoroge’s response to divorcing his first wife, Gladys Njeri, has generated conflicting opinions on social media.
Njeri talked candidly about her failed marriage to the polygamous gospel singer in a Kameme FM interview.
Njeri responded that she was no longer married to Muigai when asked if she was still married to him.
They tried, but it didn’t work, according to her.
“Ati am I married? Not any more? Not any more. We tried, I don’t blame anyone, and that is the saddest thing. It never worked anger became the danger,” she said. Adding: “Everything happening to me is divine. It happens for a reason. Whatever happened, I believe it was divine.”
Following her disclosure, many people expressed sympathy for her, among them James Light.
Muigai was reminded by James of Njeri’s encouragement and growth in his musical career.
He later married a second wife as a way of paying her back.
“This lady supported Muigai in music so that everyone like me was looking on how we can have supportive wives like him. You invest with someone through a lot of sacrifice then another lady comes to enjoy your sweat,” he wrote.
Muigai savagely responded to the man, telling him to marry Njeri now that they were no longer together.
“Now marry her so that she can compose songs and make you rich,” he said.
The singer’s harsh response left many in shock.
Muigai married his second wife, Queen Stacey, 12 years ago while still married to Njeri, and she (Njeri) revealed she was bitter and became an alcoholic because she couldn’t believe she had a co-wife.
Muigai and Stacey tied the knot in August 2023 in a colourful, traditional wedding.
