Tedd Josiah opened a can of worms last week when he revealed little-known details about his first wife Cynthia and the manner of his relationship with her.
During the interview with Grace Msalame, Tedd confessed that he didn’t love her and that he had gotten married to her due to societal pressures.
“I was in a space where I wasn’t ready to be a family man. I was breaking people more than I was building them and everything that I had built was false. You know how you grow up and you are told you are supposed to get married and live in a certain way. I was just ticking boxes and then I realized I don’t even love this person,” he told Grace.
The interview elicited a reaction from a source close to Cynthia who spoke to a popular Nairobi tabloid. In it, the unnamed source told the tabloid that Tedd was still technically married to Cynthia.
That wasn’t the only bombshell that the source unleashed. The source alleged that the legendary record producer had a child with a certain woman in Nigeria.
Such details needed a comment from the man himself and I called him about the allegations. On the question on whether they were still married, Tedd was cagey saying that he hadn’t read the interview and so couldn’t speak about it.
Could you please call her and ask her about that interview (Cynthia) cause nobody has told me about it and I have not read it.”
As the interview was on well-known and respected tabloid I asked him whether he wanted to give his own side of the story, and he declined saying that I should call the person who had given the original interview. “No you don’t! Call her and ask her about that interview. I have not read it”
And what did he have to say about the claim that he had a kid in Nigeria? The producer re-iterated his earlier stance saying that I should ask the source the questions that I was asking him?
How would that help Kenyans find out the deeper truth?
