CHEATING? What’s really going on with gospel music star Eko Dydda’s marriage?


Eko Dydda

Two weeks ago celebrated gospel music star Eko Dydda’s wife Cynthia Ayugi announced on Instragram the couple’s separation accusing her husband of serial cheating.

In the now deleted post, she claimed that Eko Dydda didn’t have to continue living a lie and it was about time he officially introduced the other woman to the world. She,apparently, was taking a walk from the troubled marriage. The couple has been married for almost ten years and they have two sons.

“I did not know they were already in a relationship. I learnt later after he started sleeping out and they both would not receive my calls,” Cynthia told Standard’s showbiz column Word Is.

“After nine years, I have finally left the marriage and I live in a separate place. Also, I want Eko to know that he is free to move on with the ‘DOPE’ woman in his life. I also want the world to know that not every friend is to be trusted,” she announced.

Happy family

So who is this other woman that is giving Cynthia sleepless nights?

Local blogs and gossip sites report that a woman called LC, gospel star Juliani’ sex-lover, is the one Eko Dydda is spending days and nights with at the expense of his family.

Eko Dydda had been at pains trying to paint a picture of a happy family after his wife’s  accusations. He posted a picture of the couple and their two kids on Instagram.

Groove Awards

At the Groove Awards nomination night at Kenya National Theatre, Eko Dydda showed up with his two kids while the wife was missing inaction. At the gala night on June 1 at Movenpick Hotel in Westlands, Eko Dydda showed up alone, his kids and wife a no-show. Looks like things aren’t that rosy much!

The fan favourite still talks fondly of Cynthia and he still denies separation rumours. He told Pulse magazine that Cynthia was still his wife and mother of their kids.

The other woman

“There are things about us that we can’t change, she is my wife and the mother of my children and I love her and respect her and there is no way I would do something like that,” he said.

“I have been in this industry for many years and women have been here and I have never been involved with anyone. Why should I ask now?” said Eko Dydda.

Chocha can reveal that Linda or LC is actually the woman that is getting this family ripped apart. She’s Juliani’s ex-lover and was featured in Hela off Juliani’s Mtaa Mentality album. Juliani booted her for the actress and more corporate friendly Brenda Wairimu. Eko Dydda claims LC is just a family friend and there was nothing between them.

Well they are all family friends at first before things turn around, no?
