He claims Regina of the popular “Ii Niwe Aca Tiwe” hit song is irresponsible, neglected him matrimonial needs and directed unkind and cruel words that stripped the priest his self-worth.

The two got married in 2002 and bore three children now aged 9, 15 and 19 years but since 2014 Regina left their home in Lamuria, Kieni, Nyeri County and has been living in Nairobi without an explanation.

According to the court documents efforts to reconcile them have been frustrated by the musician who is “reluctant”.

Regina was a low-profile musician until her performance at Nyeri first Governor Nderitu Gachagua burial in March 2017 that popularised her because of exposing her body and her dancing that went against the sorrowful event. Gachagua reportedly loved her hit song.

She has been silent since the divorce case was filed but on her Facebook page she posted; “When God wants to promote you, He uses your enemies. And when the devil wants to destroy you, he use your friends. If it wasn’t because of our friends our enemies wouldn’t know our secrets”.

She added; “In life we need to be more careful about friends, more than enemies. Most rats die with food in their mouths thinking someone is feeding them yet someone is killing them in form of feeding them. There are friends who help you in life so that it will be easy for them to destroy you later”.


    • Or the union was because a child came forth but love was weak. But for wife to skip the matrimonial home for four years it is sad. She should have told the husband it’s over and they separate amicably.

  1. She just walked away! How? There must be a reason for her absentia. However, nowadays once people come in the limelight, they tend to change. I also think she should have told the husband Bishop it’s over. So sad. Anyway, I just feel for the kids..may God help them…

  2. She should be arole model to many as a gospel artist,but now she has taken a different route.pride comes before a fall.may God help us.

  3. Comment:I doubted her fidelity somewhere we were privately….when I told her I knew her….alikata stories yangu akaondoka nlikokua…nway….I’ll not judge….they know themselves better

  4. kid born 2002 should have 17 years but not 19. i think kama kunashida they need to sit down and solve their issues instead of kukimbilia divorce…..not good at all.

  5. Regi u mean u have decided to destroy ua family bcos of these politicians! Their task is ‘ use and dump’. Fame and money are very important bt family is more important. Why is it that when a female singer becomes famous the next thing she does is to divorce her husband? Sasa utashikana na the other Kikuyu female gospel artists kuanza kunywa pombe we know them bt wanasemanga wameokoka.
