Fathers day is a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society and in line with that we are looking at a number of Kenyan celebrities and their loving dads, who are normally the unsung heroes in the society.
While most wait till they are in dire need of medical assistance or when they are deceased, a few Kenyan celebrities have never shied from celebrating their father figures both on and off social media, with others preferring to show off their mothers.
Below are a number of Kenyan celebrities who have introduced us to their loving fathers and who stand by them through thick and thin.
Celebrated singer Kambua Mathu lost her father almost four years ago but that has never stopped her from celebrating and honoring him.
Kambua’s father Professor Manundu who used to host a health show on NTV passed away in 2014.
One of her posts reads, I think of you often. Everyday. Sometimes with tears but more with a smile. I will never forget the day your heart stopped beating and mine continued to beat. I wanted mine to stop too. I felt like it did. But God in His wisdom saw it fit that I’d be here creating part of your legacy and more.
Wahu who turned into gospel music is wife to popular African-pop singer Nameless, and the two are the longest married couples in the Kenyan music industry with over a decade together.
Wahu went through the darkest time of her life when she lost her beloved dad, Mr.Kagwi, back in 2013, January 12th, though it was not clear what the cause of the death was.
Well, the singer has since accepted the loss and has been staying positive while taking care of her mother who has been widowed for 5 years now.
Media personality, Grace Msalame lost her dad Tony Msalame, on May 28, 2010.
The veteran broadcaster-cum-comedian passed away after collapsing at his Shekki FM studios at his home in Nyali in Mombasa.
Mr. Msalame is fondly remembered for his radio quiz show Zum Zum kipindi cha kuongeza maarifa on KBC that he co-hosted with Tido Mhando. In 1996, Mr Msalame joined Metro FM where he is famed for his Shekki Leggi (shake your leg) show at weekends.
President Uhuru Kenyatta is a celebrity dad to Jaba Kenyatta, Jomo Kenyatta and Ngina Kenyatta. Unlike many top ranked politicians who shy from making public appearances with their children, the Kenyatta’s have become popular figures thanks to their numerous appearances normally during state functions.
Speaking of politicians and their children, Rt Honorable Raila Odinga is another seasoned politician who loves to move around with his children in public.
Raila is a celebrity dad to the late Fidel Odinga, Ms Rosemary Odinga, Winnie Odinga and Raila Odinga Jr.
On more than one occasion, deputy president William Ruto has publicly paraded his six children insisting on how dear they are to him terming them as the reason behind his hard work in life.
Just like his boss, president Kenyatta, Ruto is often accompanied by his children during state occasions.
Gospel artiste and Tusker Project season 5 winner Ruth Matete is the daughter to celebrated Kenyan actor, Abel Amunga.
The multi-talented artiste and the founder of Ruth Matete Music Academy, the only child was raised by a single father, Abel Amunga.
She became a national sensation back in 2012 when she beat other contestants in the TPF competition, to win the much coveted Sh5million cash prize.
June 2011 was the saddest and the most painful day for gospel singer Alice Kamande after she lost her dear father.
Gideon Kamande passed away after a terminal illness. He was also the father-in-law to singer-turned-producer and artiste manager Robert Kamanzi, aka R Kay, who is married to one of his daughters, Susan Kamande.
The Groove Award winner, who is also a dancer and a fashion designer, also makes jewellery and, over the years, she has proven to be one of the most talented and humble Kenyan artistes in the local music scene.
On June 18, Alice Kamande did not celebrate Father’s Day like everyone else whose father is still alive, but she jotted down a touching tribute, thanking her father for teaching her the most important things in life: “Words of wisdom, his presence, care and love and above all, teaching me the word of God.”
I’m ever grateful to God for having met and spend time with my dad Gideon when He was alive. He was my great strength and pillar.I can attest to this, that I am a product of a man who lived a selfless life and worked tireless to provide ,a true man of valour, but there’s one thing that im ever grateful to have acquired from him and it’s not wealth , it’s the words of wisdom, his presence ,care and love and above all teaching me the word of God . This is the man who led me to Chris ,when I was only 12years old.
Kamande went on to reveal that in that same month, it was the last time she had spent Father’s Day with her dad, but little did she know that it would be the last time.
The celebrated singer went on to reveal that despite the heartache of losing a father, she found solace knowing that he’s in heaven, looking down on her:
On a day like this (Father’s day) 2011 was the last time we celebrated Father’s day with him and a few days later ,went to be with the Lord. It was one of the most devastating time of my life . “A hero was never ment to die”.So I thought to myself. But since then my Father in heaven stepped up his game and took his role and remind me . That I will never leave you nor forsake you. I am the father to the fatherless and a husband to the widows. I know His word is true . I salute all the dads who try, who fight so hard for their families like Worriors to instill discipline, good character, provide and become the priest to their homes. You play a great role in our families and society at large. We are who we are because of who you are ,you are great role models .God bless all the fathers and fathers to be. Much love.
