Daddy Owen Finally Opens Up About His Father’s Death

2017 has been the worst year for many and so it was for gospel superstars Owen Mwatia aka Daddy Owen and Roy Smith Mwatia aka Rufftone. They lost their father, Josephat Mwatia, who moulded them into what they are today.


The stars are yet to come to terms with the loss and during a recent interview with Buzz, the System ya Kapungla hitmaker revealed that their father taught them how to be strong and he surely misses him. He left a big void that cannot be filled.

“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.

Owen, who got married in April last year, says he’s happy to have married his best friend after dating for four years and he’s enjoying every bit of marriage.

“My wife and I dated for about four years before getting married, we’d already known each other so now we are making things work as a unit, things like investments… I can’t complain, I find it’s almost the same as when we were still dating because we still do the things we used to before getting married.”

Just like any other loving and faithful husband, Daddy Owen has set Friday nights specifically for his wife.

“Every Friday. We have movie nights. I always make sure I’m home on Friday night, so don’t book me for anything on those evenings.”
