Referring to himself as an image consultant, Kevin Samuels became very popular in last few years from using his podcast to guide Black men and women in the world of relationships. Kevin Samuels gained massive followers with videos titled “Why are women so angry?” and “Do modern women owe men?” While many of his teachings, advice and beliefs were very controversial, he surely knew how to get the public talking.
While some disagreed with Samuels’ teachings, others saw him as the best male influencer for both rising and seasoned men. One person took to twitter and commented, “Ppl who hate the OG #KevinSamuels is proof the majority are just bandwagon hoppers who never listened to his content and the rest are emotionally inconsistent and have a hard time accepting reality. Dude wanted men and women to be realistic when dating. That’s it.”
We pray for for the family, friends and fans of Kevin Samuels at this time.
