Celebrated Kenyan singer Nadia Mukami, known for her hit song Kai Wangu, is now seeking financial support from her baby daddy, Arrow Bwoy.

Nadia wants Arrow Bwoy to provide allowances for their child, Kai, and address the unresolved issue of unpaid dowry.

Speaking to bloggers at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport upon her return to Kenya from the US on September 27, Nadia explained that her demands for child support stems from the fact that Arrow Bwoy had been on tour while she was taking care of their son.

“I feel I need an allowance because he has been touring. He went to Australia when the baby was six weeks for two months. So he needs to pay me for all that work I’ve put in,” Nadia said.

Notably, Nadia is also seeking recognition as Arrow Bwoy’s wife, a status yet to be formalized through dowry payment.

“He has not yet paid the dowry. So it would be very bad for my father and the elders if I claim a status as a wife. He (Arrow Bwoy) understands si ati ni kwa ubaya. He even knows I keep repeating this message,” Nadia said.

The couple had initially planned to hold a traditional ceremony in February this year, but it didn’t materialize.

“That is up to him; you know you cannot pressure a man. It’s weird; it won’t feel natural,” she said.

Acknowledging that her comments might be perceived as disrespectful, Nadia clarified that they are grounded in truth and are not meant to offend.

“But it’s the truth. Even Arrow Bwoy knows, and he is not mad. Before I go and say anything on social media, I know my partner. There is nothing that he’s ever said about me that has ever upset me,” Nadia explained.

Nadia’s return from the US coincided with a reunion with Arrow Bwoy, who had been there before her.

“I had missed him. He needs to pay me for taking care of our son alone for the longest time. It’s my responsibility, but it’s also his responsibility,” she said.
