Shaffie’s children include Milan, his firstborn daughter with Debbie Asila, Nia, his daughter with Joan Mwihaki, and Tyron Jabali, whom he lovingly adopted.

In June 2019, Shaffie disclosed that he had expanded his family further through adoption, welcoming another daughter into their loving home.

“I now have four kids. I have two adopted kids and two of my own. I adopted a girl recently, so I have one adopted son and one adopted girl,” Shaffie shared

Shaffie, in a recent interview with KTN’s Art of The Living, expressed his concern over his firstborn, Milan’s proposal, admitting to feeling apprehensive about his daughter’s future.

“My daughter is 18 years old, and on Valentine’s Day, she got proposed to. It’s what it is, but I am afraid,” he confessed.

“I have broken so many girls’ hearts. She is in University. My kids are where I live. She can vote. She is an adult. I just hope that life will not be unfair to her because I have been through a lot.”

Reflecting on his journey, Shaffie shared insights into his relationships and the challenges he has faced.

“For 15 years, I lived with women. All the prime jobs I was in in my younger days did not allow me to be a committed man that I would have been in the relationships that I had at that time,” he disclosed.

Despite his experiences, Shaffie remains uncertain about committing to a serious relationship.

“If it comes, it comes. It is not wrong to marry many wives, but just give each of them equal responsibility,” he stated.
