Does Kenyan music star Samidoh still work for the police? He responds
By Judith Gicobi
Mugiithi star Samidoh is caring for a lot of disadvantaged kids, in his previous secondary school in the county of Laikipia.
Samidoh, an Administration Police officer, revealed to Word Is that a significant portion of his salary is used to cover the tuition for the students he supports.
He frequently posts pictures and videos of himself performing all around the world, yet he never posts any of himself in uniform.
Despite his increasing success in the music business, Samidoh says he had yet to find a compelling reason to quit the police.
“I work during weekdays and when needed and during the weekends do my music, just like every other talent in the police service,” he said.
The artist stated that he put a lot of effort into landing the position.
“Have you ever gone to a police recruitment exercise and seen people without shirts being taken through various activities?” he said.
“Leaving a job you searched for under those circumstances is very painful.”
Samidoh says that being raised in the community in part had motivated him to return to the school and change people’s lives.
Samidoh is getting ready for a two-month tour across the US.
He maintained that he was passionate about music and wanted to share his talent with others. By God’s grace, he says, his work was well received.
He acknowledged his mother Wairimu, who nurtured him by performing alongside him in church and crusades, for his achievement.
“I wish she was alive for her to see how her prayers molded me and kept me going,” Samidoh said.
