Sir Shina Peters, the Afrojuju maestro who dazzled Sammie, a friend and benefactor so much that she became his wife, has reportedly betrayed her.
The wife of popular Afrojuju music star, is currently crying foul as her husband of so many years has finally dumped her for a new bride called Olajumoke Olayinka Peters.
She is particularly heartbroken that Shina would desert her just when she started recuperating from a devastating bout of terminal cancer.
When she was diagnosed with the life-threatening disease, not a few people thought the singer's world would crumble and crash upon him. This is because his pain and fear was visible for all to see.
Shina made it seem like his life would be over if he lost his wife to cancer. Although the disease almost claimed Sammie’s life last year, Shina stood by her, professing his undying love for her while assuring her that she would survive.
He even dedicated a song to her during the 70th birthday celebration of his colleague, Emperor Wale Olateju, where he sang “Sammy ko ni ku o’ which means, ‘Sammy will not die.’
Eventually, Sammie beat the disease but soon after she returned to Nigeria following her successful treatment of the disease abroad, Shina deserted her.

The Afrojuju maestro has abandoned the woman to whom he professed undying love, for his new heartthrob, Olajumoke, who he attends social functions with.
Sammie on the other hand, is not happy about her husband betrayal as it is barely six months since she got back from America where she received her treatment. She has however, been left to lament her fate in silence.
According to Famous People: "Sources told us that the musician has been moving from one party to another party, painting the town red with his new wife.
"They were spotted at Demola Oniru’s birthday party recently whispering sweet nonsense into each other ears. Meanwhile, the musician has abandoned his wife who had gone through thick and thin with him and battling cancer. Family members of Sammie are so bitter with the musician."
Predictably, friends and family of the couple are unhappy with Shina over his shabby treatment of his wife. Some of them are of the opinion that Shina has proven himself to be a man without conscience.
According to them, his action bespeaks ingratitude and callousness to a woman who picked him up from scratch and invested in his dreams of greatness.
On January 7, Sammie returned to the country four days before her 56th birthday after undergoing almost two years of cancer treatment in the United States.
The couple are yet to confirm or deny the story.
