YouTube content creator Kabi Wajesus has confirmed that he sired a child with his cousin in 2013.
This, he said, was confirmed through a paternity test.
“I wish to confirm that yesterday, paternity results were issued that confirmed that I am the biological father of the child. The results confirm that, in 2013 (which was before I got born again and married), I sired Abby,” Kabi Wajesus, whose real name is Peter Kabi, said in a statement on Wednesday.
“I have sought forgiveness from God, my family and I also seek your forgiveness. Moving forward I will do everything in my power to take care of my child, as a father.” Kabi, who is married to a colleague YouTuber Milly Wambui, wrote.
Early this year, Kabi in a recorded video denied being the father of the child and insisted that the woman named Shiko was his cousin and not his baby mama.
He was at the time accused of neglecting the child. This is after photos he posted of him with a young girl went viral, with some alleging that the baby was his due to their striking resemblance.
In the recorded video alongside his wife Milly, Kabi expressed displeasure at how social media users were so quick to draw conclusions and clarified that the baby in the photo is his niece.
Castigating unknown people whom he accused of misrepresenting facts, Kabi said he received a letter from an unnamed individual purporting to be a lawyer demanding he pays Sh181,895 in child support.
“There has been a rumour doing rounds that I have a kid, a baby called Abby… Around date five, I got a letter, purportedly from a lawyer, that I need to pay child support amounting to Sh181, 895.”
“ I immediately thought it was a joke, so I called my lawyer and shared the letter with him. He checked the lawyer’s name and firm on the LSK database, and they do not exist. He told me someone was just trying to blackmail me. So, I ignored and moved on,” he explained.
He has now come out to admit what he denied three months ago.
