Award-winning Ghanaian Afro-Reggae musician, Emmanuel Samini, known in showbiz circles as Samini, is famed for his crisp voice and hitting the right notes in his music career.
But his love life sounds quite discordant with the music icon currently entangled in a love web that aptly reflects the title of his next musical creation, Sweet Mistake. Arguably the hottest Ghanaian music artiste, Samini is blessed with a voice and looks one would die for.
It comes as little surprise the musician is caught between two women. Early this month, the star got engaged to a U.K-based Ghanaian, Mercy Geker, at a private ceremony in London which sparked off controversy after it was discovered Samini was already married to another woman, Christian Aboagye Mensah with whom he fathered a daughter.
Information gathered by peacefmonline indicates that Samini performed customary marriage rites to seal his relationship with Ms. Geker, mother of their six-month old baby girl, Yelisun Samini. The ceremony in London comes less than a year after his engagement to Ms. Aboagye at Gbawe in Accra at the time she was away in Canada with their six-year-old daughter, Toyila Samini.
Although caught between two women, Samini appears unfazed by the seeming controversy he has courted. For him, the controversial marriages were borne out of a strong love for his “angels” – Yelisum and Toyila, his two wives and a desire to maintain the family unit. “I have two beautiful girls with both of them (Christiana and Mercy). I treat theme equally and love them equally.
The last thing I want to do is to leave my child and her mother in another man’s hands to become a stepchild,” Samini told peacefmonline in a telephone interview last Monday. Not one to be swayed by the raging controversy, Samini is determined to maintain the status quo. “I want to be with both children and both women and take care of them.
I cannot let go of any of them. The jury may be out on the love triangle but the 2009 MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMAS) Best Performer remains unperturbed by the criticism. “I don’t think it’s a crime to give birth with two women and decide to take full responsibility of them both. But even if it’s a crime,
I have committed it for family,” he responded. Samini’s Sweet Mistake song is due to be released soon, as single from his upcoming CEO (Crucial Entertainment Outlaw) album, with the music video also due for premier on MTV in the coming weeks. The multiple Ghana Music Awards winner and MTN icon is pursuing a course in professional production at the Point Blank Music College in London. He is expected back home in April to launch the CEO album which features artistes from Senegal, South Africa, UK, Nigeria, Kenya and some colleagues in Ghana.
