Despite the controversies surrounding Samini’s family and love relationship, he still keeps it real with his family life.
Not many men would have the guts to withstand some of the primitive or negative publications the media has done around Samini and his family. But nonetheless, he has always acted in a matured way and never on any single occasion hit the media back in a harsh way (like some others would do). Anytime he gets questioned about some of those negative stories related to his family, he really finds time to explain himself to the best capacity (to an appreciable understanding that even the respective show hosts – who presumably wanted to put him on the spot or ‘pepper-his-eyes’ with those wild family related issues – rather tend to respect it more after he speaks on his family issues).
Not to say he only talks nice on interviews (relating to his family), but in real life too, it is very evident how Samini holds in high esteem the precious women in life life and their respective kids. He always makes sure he plays that responsible role of a birthday. There were multiple times he had to pull surprise visits to his respective families (kids & women) abroad – on their birthdays, the kids’ graduations, festive seasons etc. Samini makes family life so appealing; and for sure some other dads and aspiring dads do learn a lot from him as to how he handles his family affairs.
Often times some people try to make it look like he is a polygamous figure or he is trying to promote polygamy; but Samini on the other hand however points to it that, it is not something to be overly pompous about to make family with multiple women – but to him, it is an honour for God to make him go through such passage of life where he has to prove his position as a man and lover of humanity, and respect the status/positions of his women and children, respectively.
Flipping the coin to the other side, one could liken Samini to “Ghana’s Bob Marley” – in the sense that, he is raising a whole new generation with his own family. Not to say he is playing the perceived polygamous life like Bob Marley, but Samini is taking a cue from Bob Marley on how he also raised his family way back (and all have grown to still be under that same Marley umbrella peacefully) and playing very vital roles under the family’s business and extending the legacy of Bob Marley. For all you know, Samini is also cutting that same path. It’s about time we see the positive and influential side of Samini and his family life. This piece is not to urge other men to engage in polygamy or multiple marriages; this piece is written to celebrate Samini and all well-meaning men who are able to keep such families healthily and responsibly.
