Samidoh’s social media post on betrayal draws mixed reactions

Mugiithi artiste Samuel Muchoki, popularly known as Samidoh, stirred up mixed of reactions among his followers after sharing a post on social media discussing surviving depression and betrayal.

In the post, Samidoh reflected on overcoming challenging times, stating:

“Tell them we survived depression, betrayal, and disappointments. Now we don’t see any big deal with anything.”

However, the response from his fans in the comment section was not entirely supportive, with some criticising him for speaking on the topic of betrayal considering his own personal circumstances.

Samidoh has been under public scrutiny after he fathered children with both his wife, Edday Nderitu, and nominated senator Karen Nyamu.

Responding to criticism from one follower named Nthiga Irene, Samidoh retorted, “Nthiga Irene, that’s why I said it’s not for your level of IQ, wait until tomorrow.”

Another follower, Esther Nickie, received a similar response from Samidoh, who dismissed her comment, implying it was beyond her understanding.

In an interview, Samidoh opened up about the challenges of fame and negativity, expressing his dislike for constantly being in the spotlight.

“There is a cost to everything. When I was herding cattle in Jorook, nothing would have happened to me because I was a nobody. But now, when I became famous, negativity comes with it. Life is a balance sheet. You focus. The problem is not me or us,” he explained.

Samidoh also shared his approach to addressing such matters with his eldest daughter, emphasizing the importance of clear communication amidst public scrutiny.

“The problem is you guys blow things out of proportion, misquote someone, put things here and there, so my job is to sit down with my children and tell them if your life is like this, someone will add something to it, and you didn’t say it,” he stated.

Acknowledging his role as a father to five children from two women, Samidoh emphasized his commitment to being there for all his children equally.

Despite the challenges he faces, he affirmed:

“I may not be many things but I’m a good father. Because I’m there for my children always. When it comes to time, when it comes to financial support, I’m always there for them, all of them.”
