Famous Mugithi singer Samuel Muchoki alias Samidoh was the guest on Churchill Show journey edition where he opened up on his private life in a candid interview with comedian Churchill. The celebrated Mugithi singer recounted how he struggled with life while growing up when his father died, leaving his mother with the burden of bringing him up together with his other siblings.
Samidoh revealed that his father, who was a police officer, died in the line of duty during tribal clashes. The singer emotionally disclosed that his father had been sent to restore law and order among two warring communities in Rift Valley when he met his untimely death.
He reportedly ran out of bullets and during the melee, he was shot with arrows. When his father died, he was only three years old, and growing up without a father figure was very challenging "My father was shot with arrows after he ran out of bullets when he was deployed to maintain law and order during tribal clashes in Rift Valley, " he said and added that he always preaches peace since tribal clashes left him without a dad.
Samidoh further said that after his father died, life became very tough since they were 6 children and his mother had no formal job. While in primary school, he dropped out in Standard Seven to herd cattle to help his mother pay bills. He was being paid a meager salary of Sh 300 per month.
Sadly, his mother died weeks after he joined secondary school. Samidoh's neighbors came to his rescue after his mother died.
He would get food from his kind-hearted neighbors. '' Getting food was not much of a problem since I had supportive neighbors. I would alternate homes and get food until I completed high school, " he revealed.
