Samidoh Fires Back at Blogger Francis Gaitho’s Criticism

Kenyan Mugithi artist Samuel Muchoki, commonly known as Samidoh, has found himself at the center of a social media feud with blogger Francis Gaitho, who has repeatedly questioned the legitimacy of Samidoh’s musical talent and the sponsorships he has secured.

In a recent tweet, Gaitho expressed disbelief over the numerous sponsors that Samidoh’s foundation has attracted, suggesting that the artist’s popularity is undeserved. He criticized Samidoh’s lack of choreography, vocals, and stage presence, questioning the basis for his success.

Gaitho’s criticism is not new. In March, he had similarly questioned Samidoh’s musical prowess, claiming that the artist is more known for his relationship drama than his musical talent. He even went so far as to challenge Kikuyus to name a single song of Samidoh’s, asserting that his fame is unfounded.

Samidoh, however, has not taken these criticisms lying down. In a response to Gaitho’s latest tweet, he simply stated, “That overfeeding is harmful to one’s reasoning.” His concise remark hints at his belief that Gaitho’s excessive criticism stems from a lack of rational thinking.

Despite the ongoing feud, Samidoh’s foundation launch has been a success, garnering significant attention and support, including a substantial contribution from Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua. The foundation aims to address various social issues, and with the support it has received, it is well-positioned to make a positive impact.

The clash between Samidoh and Gaitho highlights the power of social media and the potential for online criticism to overshadow one’s achievements. Samidoh’s ability to navigate this criticism and focus on his music and philanthropic endeavors is a testament to his resilience and commitment to his craft.
