Through controversial blogger Edgar Obare, Jemutai informed the public that she had been married to self-proclaimed prof. Hamoh for three years and together they had two children. She exposed Hamoh as a dead-beat father who did not take care of his children and had neglected his fatherly duties and responsibilities.

Jemutai further narrated how she had fallen in love with prof Hamoh and they moved in together in 2018 when she got pregnant with their first baby. At that time Hamoh had not joined Hot 96 and Jemutai used to foot their bills.
When Hamoh finally joined Hot 96, Jemutai had to quit her job to help him create the best content for his morning show. According to Jemutai, Hamoh started mistreating her after gathering fame and money and neglected his parental obligations.
