Youtuber Peter Kabi, popularly known as Kabi WaJesus has finally admitted to siring a child with his alleged cousin.
Taking to his Instagram page to confess, the popular content creator revealed DNA results indicate that he is the father of the child who has only been introduced by name as Abby.
“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,” he said in the statement.
Kabi now says he will discharge his parental responsibility fully and promised to engaged the mother of the child, who is believed to be his cousin, and only identified as Shiko, on the way forward.
He regrets his earlier comments where he disowned the child adding that it is time to open a new chapter henceforth.
“I also know that my public comments about this matter gave a false impression which I deeply regret,” he added.
“It is a relief as we can now chat the way forward together with the mother for the welfare of our child. I am immediately reaching out to her so that we can discuss and agree on her future.”
Allegations of Kabi siring a child with the alleged cousin first emerged from blogger Edgar Obare who shared screenshots of a message sent to him exposing the YouTuber for neglecting a child.
Pictures of him, Shikoh and the child went viral on social media forcing Kabi to comment on the incident.
In a video recording, he dismissed reports he dated the woman but confirmed she was his cousin.
“The lady you see in this picture is my cousin, and the baby we took this picture with is called Abby – she is my niece. How can someone say you are the father of your cousin’s child?” he posed.
Kabi revealed that he received a message from an unfamiliar number of a lawyer demanding child support of Shs181, 895.
He at the same time dismissed reports of fathering the child and said he was shocked by the demand letter.
Kabi got married to Milly WaJesus in 2017 and they are blessed with a child.
