Why I don’t wear my wedding ring anymore – Daddy Owen

Gospel singer Daddy Owen has finally removed his cherished wedding ring.

Owen has recently been spotted without his rings about one and half years after his split from his wife.

Speaking to Classic105, Owen said it was time to remove it. Asked if it is a sign he has moved on, Owen said he would talk about it later.

“For now, just know it was time to remove it.”

In an earlier interview with Churchill show, Owen said he kept his ring since he wasn’t shying away from challenges or issues. 

“I’m like a bull, I’ll face it head-on. The truth is like a lion, once it’s out, it’s out and I’m ready to fight in the jungle.”

In October last year, South Mugirango MP Sylvanus Osoro asked singer Daddy Owen to look for another woman.

“We have accepted what happened. Pick one, there is a stage here, a pastor,” he said amid cheers from the crowd.

This was during his Chapter IV album launch. Osoro detailed his close relationship with Owen.

He said he was devastated after the news of Owen’s marriage breaking down.

“I can’t believe this is Owen. In December he came to my office and I felt so bad. I had a bigger problem than him, but I had to shed a tear, his life wasn’t looking very okay,” he narrated.

Osoro, who is also Owen’s lawyer, said he had to distract Daddy Owen to prevent him from sinking deep into depression.

He did this by taking him to the South Mugirango constituency and giving him tasks to do.

“It has been around 10 months and I have seen a transformation in him. I had to distract him. I took him to the constituency, gave him a road to build,” Osoro said.

“I see he is back on track and I am very happy today.”


Daddy Owen defends Kibaki’s grandson for ‘snubbing’ Raila Odinga

Singer Daddy Owen on Saturday defended late Mwai Kibaki’s grandson for allegedly snubbing ODM leader Raila Odinga during the former president’s burial.
Kibaki’s grandson was seen looking away when Raila was shaking hands with Kibaki’s family members.
On his social, Daddy Owen called out people who unfairly judged the young man subjecting him to social media trolls yet the video was manipulated.
“I have seen so many people trolling this young man on social media, this is the correct video that u can see clearly from this angle that the young man is shaking the hand of former PM Hon. Raila Odinga.

It is unfair that people have judged him all day yet he was avoiding the photographer and not the former PM,” he wrote in a social media post.
Owen added that social media people conclude issues before being keen.
“It is sad that on the streets of social media you can be unfairly judged by people jumping to conclusions.”
Apparently, the video in question is clear that Kibaki’s grandson shook Raila’s hands before turning away from a camera person who wanted to take a picture of him.

‘Daddy Owen was my roommate when we had nothing,’ says Ringtone reveals old days

Self-proclaimed Chairman of the gospel industry Ringtone, killed the show at Daddy Owen’s album launch last night.

Away from throwing shade at other artistes, Ringtone took time to congratulate Owen for launching his sixth album.

While addressing the audience, Ringtone mentioned that they started music with Owen at the same period.

Narrating their humble beginnings, Ringtone revealed that he did not have a house in his early days in Nairobi.

They lived together with Daddy Owen and his big brother singer Rufftone.

“I used to live with Owen. We would sleep together on the same bed at Rufftone’s house. This one (Rufftone) used to feed us. I did not have a lot of clothes, I used to wait for a cloth he wore the previous day, and wear it. Rufftone used to meet me in town with a T-shirt he had won the previous day and give me.”

Ringtone also rebuked Kenyan celebrities who have been cross-dressing and those who had decided to use their talent to mislead God’s people

“I rebuke the behavior of men wearing women’s clothes, starting from Bahati and that Mtumba guy. There is no way a man can wear women’s clothes. Mr. Seed should return my money, I contributed to him during his album, kidogo naona ameanza kutoa ngoma za dawa ya baridi ni wasichana. Mr Seed wewe ni mwizi, return my money.”

‘My money will come from your nose,’ Daddy Owen accused of fraud by Rigan Sarkozie

Rigan Sarkozi has called out Daddy Owen for not paying him after writing for him the hit song, Wewe Ni Mungu.

Rigan also took legal action against him claiming that Daddy Owen  owes him 2 million shillings.

Rigan Sarkozi accuses Daddy Owen of failing to pick his phone calls, fails to reply to his SMSs even though the ‘Vanity’ hitmaker has collected 5 years worth of his music royalties.

Rigan asks to get an answer from Daddy Owen as soon as possible.

“I am sending this message to get to Daddy Owen, I want him to pay my money which he owes me for the song ‘Wewe Ni Mungu’ and ‘Vanity’ which was also my song but he gave credit to Pitson.

I finished everything including the melody of the song. Pitson does not know the people in that song. Daddy Owen please give me an answer to my money,” he says.

Wewe ni Mungu was a hit song done four years ago.

“That was my song, I just gave you a verse to be in the song, you have never written any song and you will never write any song,” he added.

Daddy Owen

Rigan went on to says that he has lived with Owen for two years but he did not borrow anything from him and so he does not owe him anything to refuse to pay his money.

“You will not succeed if you have not paid my money. You are in deep sh*t with a bad person. I have never stolen from anyone. I have never borrowed you anything for the two years we lived together. You know I have lived with you for two years and I never borrowed you anything. I was buying food and even your brothers knows that. My money will come from your nose,” he said.


Daddy Owen (according to Rigan Sarkozi’s) allegations claims that he is not currently in the country.

“Wa Kenya, Daddy owen ame cancel meeting yangu na yeye na J BLESSING na SADAT muhindi eti ilikua iwe leo by 10:30 am Sasa anasema hayuko Kenya. Wakenya mjisaidie 2M siyo pesa kidogo jamani,” Sarkozi shared on social media.

When Classic 105 reached out to Daddy Owen he said he has no comment.

“Rigan is my brother,”he said.

Daddy Owen never imagined that he would one day have a squint eye, but he did after receiving a severe beating from the public during a robbery.

Speaking exclusively to Classic 105, Owen says that losing his eye made him understand better the challenges that people with disabilities live with.

“My friends and I had planned to steal in a matatu but things did not turn out well as the people in that matatu beat me up. 

This was immediately after leaving high school. At the time my family lived in Eastland’s Umoja estate.

I came to Nairobi from shags, met different people here and as a young person I wanted to fit in the crew.

I joined a gang that we used to call ‘Mbogi’, and our work was to rob people.

I don’t like this story because I was a thug for two to three years but I want to inspire someone.

‘My eye was pierced while I tried to rob’, Daddy Owen recounts life before salvation

Many people assume Daddy Owen has a natural squint in one of his eyes, but that isn’t the case.

Speaking on Radio on Tuesday, the singer said he got the squint eye from a beating he got from an angry audience he was trying to rob in his thieving days.

“My friends and I had planned to steal in a matatu, but things did not turn out well as the people in that matatu beat me up,” Daddy Owen said.


This was immediately after leaving high school. At the time, his family lived in Eastland’s sprawling Umoja estate.

“I came to Nairobi from shags, met different people here, and as a young person, I wanted to fit in the crew. I joined a gang that we used to call ‘Mbogi’, and our work was to rob from people. I don’t like this story but I want to inspire someone who will hear it. I became a thug for two to three years,” he said.


Even as his gang members ended up being killed one by one, Daddy Owen was determined to continue with his lifestyle.

“Most of my friends were killed, others burned down to ashes but I still did it. You know it is only serious when it happens to you?” he said.

Owen nearly lost his life upon being beaten up by a huge crowd when his attempt to steal from passengers was thwarted.

“There were no phones and so my friends realised that there were askaris in that car and left without my knowledge. Like we had planned, I started the mission of stealing from the back seats but I was caught and badly beaten. That is when my eye was pierced,” he said.


Fortunately he escaped death and was rushed to hospital.

“I realised I needed to change my life as well as behaviour. I had fought so hard to fit in the gang, but all of them did not come to visit me in hospital,” he said.

“The most supportive person was my brother Rufftone, who completely stood by me because my dad was away, working to keep the family going. He was the big brother and he really helped me. He mentored me and my music journey was inspired by him. Immediately after I was discharged from hospital, I got saved,” Owen said.

Owen is currently doing music and married with a child they welcomed in July. His songs include Wewe Ni Mungu, Kazi ya Msalaba, Mbona and System ya Kapungala.

‘Whenever I hear the songs you used to like I shed a tear’ Daddy Owen mourns his dad

Daddy Owen is still mourning the death of his dad, a year after he passed on.

In an emotional message on social media, he reminisced about their good old days.

He wrote

It’s 1 year since u left us dad.. we miss u alot.. u taught me alot Dad.. how to relate with people of kinds.. how to respect and love .. how to be a man.. whenever I hear the songs u used to like from the likes of Madilu.. Tabu Ley.. Franco.. Luseno.. I shed a tear.. u loved us , even though u dint go to school u made sure all of us went to school and u gave us what u never got when u were young.. U took a huge sacrifice to go to Nairobi to work so that we can go to school.. U exposed us to the best life yet for u no one gave u that life when u were young.. I love u dad.. I love u daddy .. RIP Mzee.”


Forget Okoth Obado’s mansion worth more than Ksh100 million ,here is Sonko’s million dollar mansion(PHOTOS)

Almost a year ago after losing his dad, the musician penned how his dad was among the first people in their village to come to Nairobi.

“It was so hard, he was my inspiration in so many things. My dad never went to school but he struggled, came to Nairobi and worked hard for himself and us. He was among the first people in our village to go to Nairobi, he was about 14 then, he was a hero, and his nickname was ‘mzungu’.

The thing that hurts me the most is that when I last talked to him, he had gone for a medical check-up, I had processed medical insurance for him and it’s just the other day that the guys from the insurance company called and told me ‘your dad’s insurance is ready’ after he died. It was so painful because I wanted him to live a good life.

I don’t know whether this is a good or bad thing; my father brought us up to be strong men, that even when you’re suffering you power through it. I wish he would have opened up more because even when he was going through something he would suffer in silence. He brought us up to be tough, to not complain all the time,” said Daddy Owen.”

The Malaika Awards founder also revealed that their father was so secretive and died before telling them more about his life

“He kept so many things to himself. Sometimes as men we get into this ‘cave’ in our heads and tell ourselves we will solve whatever’s going on then come out, but it gets deep and dark and you die inside there. I think my dad died inside his ‘cave’. There’s so much he didn’t tell us,’ he added.

Speaking to Classic 105, Owen said he nearly lost his son.

Exclusive: Heartwarming photos of Daddy Owen’s pregnant wife

“Fatherhood is and has always been amazing and I thank God for that. The biggest challenge was after the last check with the doctor, [just] before booking the hospital for delivery. The doctor told us to go for a scan because my wife said she was in pain, yaani kama labour pain, yet her due date was not near.”



The result was shocking and his wife had to undergo emergency Cesarean section.

“We went for the scan and the results [showed] that the cord was around the baby’s neck… Thank God my late dad told me that pregnancy matters need to be planned [for] in advance, so I was ready financially. Farida was forced to go through emergency delivery five weeks before her due date.”

The doctor told the couple there was a possibility of losing the baby.

“The doctor said for a very long time he has had such cases, and those kids ended up dying. I was so stressed about losing my son. I decided to ask the doctor what the reason could be, and he said there is no documented reason.”


Daddy Owen encourages men to support their women during childbirth and afterwards.

“Once you have your wife in the delivery room, you appreciate your parents even more for the effort they put on you and for lack of sleep.

“You must be there during the day and even at night to support your wife, otherwise she might end up in depression. Depression in this way, the baby is crying, she tries everything but the baby is still crying. That can lead to mental depression if we, men, are not careful.

“Sometimes the baby might just be requiring a new environment which you, as a man, are capable [of providing]. Give her the confidence and assure her that you are with her all through.

“My wife and I have shifts at night to take care of the baby and I am happy about that.”


Daddy Owen’s son was born the same day as Javelin superstar, Julius Yego’s in Nairobi Hospital.

Bae Manenos! Meet these Kenyan gospel artistes and their amazing spouses

Marriage is ordained by God and whoever finds a good wife /husband finds favor from above. Married local gospel artistes are enjoying that favor completely.

Although most artistes are in the public limelight, most of them have managed to keep their spouses away from the limelight leaving Kenyans guessing whom the artiste is married to or dating. Most of the artistes are married by laid back spouses who do not enjoy being in the limelight .

Such artistes make such decisions to be able to protect their spouse from public scrutiny, public attack and for privacy purposes which is something most of these artistes do not enjoy.

Below are some of the gospel artistes and their spouses.


The soft spoken gospel artiste is married to the love of her life Jackson Mathu who is a church minister. The two have been married for six years and we must say they look good together.

2.Mercy Masika

Mercy is known for her uplifting music such as ‘Nikupendeze’ ‘Mwema ‘ and’ shule yako’. Apart from being a musician she is also a mother and a wife to a supportive husband David Mugoro.

Although Mugoro is always away from the limelight, the two have been spotted together on different occasions.
