Samidoh acknowledges his ‘wives’ and children during foundation launch
Samuel Muchoki, widely known as Samidoh, marked a significant milestone as he officially launched his foundation.
The event, attended by the who’s who in the political world, influencers, and top celebrities, was a testament to the impact Samidoh has made not only in the music industry but also in the hearts of those around him.
During his heartfelt speech, Samidoh took a moment to acknowledge the emotional pillars in his life—his children and their mothers, Edday Nderitu and Senator Karen Nyamu.
He shared, “My late mum’s wise words still echo in my ears. To my children, whom I love so much, you are the radiant light that illuminates my darkest nights. Your mothers, for bearing all of you, are my rocks,” he said amid cheers.
Speaking with Nairobi News at the foundation’s launch, Samidoh conveyed his anticipation for the moment, expressing profound joy.
“This is truly one of the happiest days of my life. I’ve always harbored the desire to witness this dream materialize, and I feel honored that it has finally come to fruition.
The overwhelming support from people, who appreciate what I do, is heartening. The substantial turnout is a testament to that love. This foundation is just one of several projects through which I aim to contribute to and uplift my community.”
He credited Benga artiste Kamande wa Kioi as his “dad in music,” highlighting the profound impact his mentorship has had on Samidoh’s musical journey.
Reflecting on the genesis of the foundation, Samidoh revealed that the idea was born three years ago when he realized the power of music as a beacon of hope and a means to give back to society.
“It is a celebration and a testament that kindness has power,” he declared.
The second-born in a family of six, Samidoh reminisced about the support he received from neighbors during his early years, shaping the foundation’s mission to give back to those who may have lost their way.
He talked about losing his parents at a younger age being the reason he wants to give back to the society.
“We are not just giving hope; we are also lighting the path for those in need,” he emphasized.
The high-profile event garnered even more attention with the presence of Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, who represented President William Ruto.
Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua made a significant contribution of sh 2 million towards the foundation promising to give support to the foundation even more.
Samidoh’s foundation launch took place at Parklands Sports Club on 30 November.
