Edday Nderitu, the spouse of the renowned police officer and Kikuyu Mugithi maestro, Mr. Samuel Muchoki Ndirangu, widely recognized as Samidoh, has been a prominent figure in the shadow of her husband’s limelight. Samidoh’s influence has been felt strongly in Kikuyu music and live performances, maintaining a dominant presence over the past decade.
Despite her husband’s fame, Edday has consciously chosen to lead a discreet life, steering clear of the public eye. However, she remains active on social media, using the platform to express her opinions on diverse subjects. Notably, she became embroiled in a contentious dispute concerning her romantic involvement with Honorable Karen Nyamu, a city lawyer and potential senator nominee, during an altercation in a Dubai hotel.
Acknowledging her preference for a private existence, Edday openly shared on her Facebook page that she draws inspiration from the life of Pastor Kiengei’s wife. In a candid admission, she stated, “If I lose this bet, ni kuoga tu na Kurudi Soko, I haven’t lost much.” These words reflect her pragmatic approach to life, embracing simplicity and resilience in the face of challenges.
