DP Gachagua ‘clears’ Samidoh to host concerts outside Kenya after Dubai drama
Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has cleared Mugiithi singer Samidoh to perform abroad.
Gachagua was speaking during media personality Muigai Wa Njoroge function who celebrated 25 years in the music industry.
Gachagua further hailed Samidoh for putting his ‘house’ in order.
Samidoh was blocked from performing outside the country after the public drama in Dubai between his first wife Edday Nderitu and baby mama Karen Nyamu in December 2022.
At the time, DP Gachagua said Samidoh’s public antics had embarrassed the country.
“I had blocked Samidoh from going abroad but I have now allowed him to go and do shows there since he has kept his house in order,
There is now some peace and some respect. Samidoh is also our police officer. He will be allowed to go but he should not tell the white people our secrets,” Gachagua told the crowd.
Nyamu, a nominated Senator, was present at the function.
Gachagua also mentioned that the fight against alcoholism in Central Kenya is beginning to take shape in Central Kenya.
In January 2023, Gachagua told Samidoh, born Samuel Muchoki, that he had earned the respect of many through his music compositions and should now restore order in his family and ensure decency prevails.
“Samidoh control your people. Control your people and if you fail we shall ban you from travelling abroad,” he said.
Gachagua said that when he goes out to perform in a foreign country, he should keep in mind many foreign countries do not appreciate polygamy.
In December, a video clip went viral online showing Karen Nyamu and Samido’s wife Edday Nderitu embroiled in a bitter fight at a concert in Dubai where Samidoh was performing.
The clash between the two saw Nyamu forcibly ejected from the dias and whisked away by the security guard.
The senator later blamed her actions on alcohol, a habit she vowed to quit come January this year.
She was later summoned to appear before UDA Disciplinary Committee.
Karen and Samidoh have been spotted attending functions together in the recent past.
