“I was born into a family of six. We are six boys and I am the third born. My mother was called Miriam Wairimu, but she left us. My father was called Michael Ndirangu. He worked at Molo during the clashes in the 1990s and was killed,” Pulse Live quoted him as saying.
After losing his father, they were expelled from the ancestral land of Nyandarua County.
As an orphan, Samidoh had to overcome several difficulties to pay his school fees, but completed high school despite the obstacles.
In high school, he met his wife Edith Muchoki, with whom they are together to this day.
Samidoh’s musical career
He started his music career after high school after moving to the capital, Nairobi.
In the city, he joined the music group of Kamande wa Kio as a backup artist. His older brother was a drummer in legendary musician Kikuyu’s band.
He then decided to join Kenya Polytechnic to pursue a degree course in Business and Information Technology.
