Owen Mwatia, popularly known as Daddy Owen is one of the gospel artistes in the country who has been in the industry for more than a decade and his music no doubt speaks for him.
The veteran singer’s successful musical career is attributed to his hard work, his amazing talent, his down to earth and lovable personality and resilience to make it to the top of the game over the years.
The Mbona hitmaker is revered for his impact on the local entertainment scene, not forgetting his immense awards. He recently received a Groove Awards nomination for the Best Male Artiste 2017 category.
In regards to this, he recently opened up about what he thought of Bahati and Willy Paul being snubbed for the second time by not receiving any nominations, saying that; “maybe this was their plan all along, not to be caught in Groove awards or they are changing what they are doing, or that they are right and other people are wrong.”
But what is it that he’s doing differently that has helped propel him to stardom, with such a huge fan base over the years and still making it big time?

In a recent interview, I spoke to Daddy Owen to get his opinion on how the musical industry is fairing now compared to a few years back and what he thinks new artistes should do to have a successful career and still remain respected and popular for years to come.
According to him; “Gospel is more about people appreciating what you do as a musician” but you have to be a genuine gospel artiste.
Still on that, Daddy Owen revealed that some new artistes should stop sideshows just to please their fans because you can never depend on sideshows for a successful music career since it’s expensive and people get tired of them with time.
