At this rate, it seems like every male celebrity in Kenya has children outside wedlock. A while ago, a woman known as Carol Nduta called out Mo for impregnating her and neglecting her together with their twin daughters who she claimed he sired.

According to the lady, he abandoned them but they are doing just fine regardless.

God was so faithful that she not only conceived but also gave birth to their second born, Muraya Junior.
