This man Samidoh: guns and guitars

Born Muchoki Ndirangu, Samidoh is not your everyday artiste. During the day, he is a police officer and by night, he keeps you on your feet belting out Gikuyu-laced tunes. He is without a doubt the reigning new-age Mugithi king if going by the electrifying performances he gives are anything to go by.

The humble musician started out as a backup singer for Kamande wa Kioi in 2009 but few years down the line he ventured fully as a solo artist with his debut  song Ndiri mutwe mwega (I Don’t Have a Straight Mind), which has so far garnered over 2.6 million views on YouTube.

Since then, he has released several other songs. Some of his popular songs include, Ihoya Ria Samidoh, Kairitu Gakwa, Niwe Ndarathimiirwo, Tuhii Twitu, Riari Itheru,  Wendo Maguta,  Wendo Na Urimu, Niwathire Naihenya, Wendo Wi Cama ft. Joyce Wa Mama, Murata Wa Ngai, Vijana Tutokelezee ft. Katempa and  Kanua Njohi Ini.

His latest single, Mumbi premiered on September 8, 2020. At the time of going to press, the video has garnered over 350,000 views on YouTube.  His journey has been on a meteoric rise, which has seen him share the stage with who-is-who in the entertainment industry despite cutting a niche with his Gikuyu mastery.  Samidoh, the third born in a family of six boys, was brought up in a humble family. His father died when he was three years old.

Soon after, they were kicked out of their Subukia home by his father’s brothers. His humble beginnings did not dim his star  as he managed to conquer all that despite dropping out of school due to hardship. He later actualized his education dream when he joined the Kenya Polytechnic University to pursue a diploma course in Business Information Technology.

The 30-year-old father of two easily fills up stadia without much effort, and his music videos on YouTube enjoy unrivalled feat amongst his peers.

“I got kicked out from home,” Bien’s brother Melvin painfully admits facing great rejection and resentment from their father



Sauti Sol’s Bien-Aime Baraza’s eldest brother, Melvin has come out to reveal how his father rejected him at a very tender age.

The eldest of the three boys of the Baraza family took to his social media page to tell his story as a child, growing up without the foundation of a father’s love who was present but with no love towards him.

Sharing a sweet photo with one of his daughters lying on his back, Melvin attested that a father’s love is the foundation of his children. A love through which the young ones build on and are able to face storms the world throws at them.

The sad narrative

However, that was never the case of his childhood.

I grew up facing great rejection and resentment from my father. I was fearful, felt unworthy and for the better part of my childhood longed for his affirmation, painfully narrated Melvin.

Unfortunately, the more he kept seeking affirmation from his father, the more it got worse.

…it only got worse to the point of being kicked out of the home I knew at the tender age of 17,” he continued.

Looking back, it is not the tears or the pain he underwent that matters, but the lessons his childhood taught him that have seen him become a present and loving father to his 6 children. Because for him, breaking the curse of rejection is what matters most!

Today God has blessed me with 6 children whom I love with my life, an opportunity to break the curse of rejection and change the narrative.

Beautiful Anita Nderu leaves Team Mafisi confused after declaring that she is a member of LGBTQ Community



Kenyan media personality Anita Nderu has sparked mixed reactions online after announcing she is a member of the LGBTQ community.


Nderu, a former presenter at Capital FM, revealed this through a post on her Twitter page on Thursday, saying she hopes her kids will not be subjected to what she has gone through for being LGBTQ.

“I hope my kids never have to go through what I have gone through for being LGBTQ+,” Anita wrote.

Her announcement comes weeks after she came under heavy criticism from social media users for hosting two gay men on her YouTube show. Anita later defended her show, saying her guests were only friends who decided to show their real selves.

In July this year, Nderu said she would not apologise for hosting members of the LGBTQ community on her cooking show, ‘The overdressed cook’.

The video, which was meant for viewers over the age of 18, caught the attention of many, which led to her trending for days.

Speaking to Massawe on Radio Jambo, Anita said she respects people’s opinions but she will not apologise.

She said she has always been open about different things happening around, and so this being pride month, she decided to invite some of her friends on the show.

“I simply asked my friends to come on my web show and be themselves. What any of us have chosen to do on the show is how each of us is. Nothing about my show is scripted. What you see from the guests, food to outcome is what actually genuinely took place,” she said.

Anita has not been secretive about being a staunch supporter of Kenyan lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) persons.

“As people, we should celebrate our differences, encourage authenticity & wonder at the diversity of humanity. We all have a right to love and be loved. Have an amazing day,” she added.
