Tedd Josiah reminisces wife’s death and raising a child alone

It’s been a year plus since Tedd Josiah lost his wife Reginah Katar, and he is still coming to terms with her death.

Reginah left behind a daughter (Jay) who celebrated her first birthday last year (2018).

Tedd has been bringing her up with the help of his close family and friends.

Taking to his instagram he wrote

“As I sat in the car with a little 3 month old baby asleep in my arms at 5:30am outside a hospital I thought to myself…. “so my best friend is dead, my love, but isn’t this a joke? She surely must me asleep…. will I manage this alone with an infant?”
My response? “God will give me the ability.”

Loosing someone you love 💕 and who loves you unconditionally and loves your baby unconditionally is the worst thing EVER! It plays back in my mind every single day and when little Jay looks at me I have to smile and let her know we love Mama bear 🐻 and she’s always there with us.
As we run @jokajokleather and make a living I for ourselves I also wonder every time we make a bag or even do a photoshoot if she likes what we’ve done.”

He adds
“This to us is more than a bag company, it’s a journey hence the bags, it’s a legacy of a Queen, it’s providing a living for many people, school fees for our staff and maybe someday it will be Africa’s biggest luxury designer brand capable of taking on the global brands and also capable of employing the next generation that is JayJay’s age.
Thank you to our IG family. You’ve helped me in the healing process and with every purchase we are one step closer to this BIG dream @reginahkatar and i had.
Happy Sunday and God bless

Kenyan celebrities dads bringing up children single handedly after losing their spouses

Single dads and widowers bringing up their children single handedly rarely get recognition.

These men have been thrown into the single father and widow department not by choice but by circumstances but instead of them crying wolf about it they are using the lemons life threw at them to make lemonade.

1. Tedd Josiah

When Reginah Katar breathed her last music producer Tedd Josiah had not imagined what life would be without her. With a daughter looking up to him for love and guidance, Tedd has had to take up the role of being a dad and a mum to his beautiful daughter Jay.

Tedd Josiah who is a music producer  is a true definition of a real gentleman. He has proved that when men put their mind into something they can actually do it.

2. Robert Burale

The stylish pastor Robert Burale is a single dad and he is not ashamed of that fact. He has his daughter to share all the love and affection.

Burale, who got divorced from his wife 6 years ago, is a role model as to what fathers should be in an age where dead beat dads are the order of the day.

Even though Burale did not lose his wife, he is still doing a good job and it is worth commending.

3. George Ikua

When the late Janet Kanini Ikua lost her life after a brave battle with cancer, the world came tumbling down for her hubby George Ikua and since then he has hard to adjust by bringing up his kids on his own.

He is a brave man who is still mourning his departed wife but still taking care of his kids as a single man only with the help of relatives and close friends.

4. Dan Sonko

Dan lost his wife after she developed complications after delivery, leaving behind a son who never got to know his mum. Dan Sonko, who is based in Mombasa, has taken charge of bringing up his two sons and he is doing so well.

His young son is now all grown up and their late mum Dru Sonko would be so proud to see how much of a good job her husband has done.

5. Abel Amunga

Abel, who is an actor and  father to  gospel artiste Ruth Matete, has managed to bring up her daughter single handedly for years after the death of his wife.

The father of one has on several occasions  stated that his daughter’s well being is what matters to him first and even when he is choosing roles to play, he has to ask for her opinion.

He is among fathers who do a good job and rarely get recognized by the society which is full of praise for single mothers.

‘I don’t want them to ever think that I hate their mother,’ Tedd Josiah opens up about his ex-wife and teenage kids

September is the most trying month for Tedd Josiah after he lost the mother of his daughter, Reginah Katara, a year ago after developing complications leaving them heartbroken.

He has been raising his daughter Jameela, popularly known as ‘Gummy Bear’, for a year now.

The wife suffered from a condition called thrombocytopenia, characterized by abnormally low levels of thrombocytes, also known as platelets, in the blood.

“I know this a very trying month for me and difficult for us,” he told Word Is.

Previously, Tedd was married but separated with the first wife, with whom he sired two children in 2008. In previous interviews, he said a lot of things crumbled at that time. Some of his fans on social media, where he shares the journey of his one-year-old daughter, have however been trying to question why he does not post his children from the previous marriage.

“There are always things to leave public and others to leave private. My separation with my ex-wife has been written about by most media houses. I have never spoken about it because the children involved are teenagers and I don’t want them to ever think that I hate their mother. So by me commenting on what happened, that is very bad for everyone involved and I will be opening open wounds.”

Tedd Josiah shares the last post by his late wife 2 days before her untimely death

“The children are there and I have never denied them and I take care of them and I don’t ask people about their children,” Tedd said.He said it is only people who are bitter with their lives who can ask such questions.

“When somebody comes and starts doing nasty things on a photo of a child, you wonder if their father left them or were they abandoned or have they been raped or do they have social issues, and I wonder if I will react positively or negatively.

The best thing is to be positive to them since they are already faced by other problems. You can put a photo of your father and somebody may say your father had many wives and he was a bastard. The first reaction for you is you will feel angry because you love your father but why do they post that? Most people post such things because that is what they feel and that has nothing to do with you. So you have to understand them.”


Raising his daughter Wendo has not been easy, but he wants to give her the best life.

“It has been very hard to raise a young girl because of first of all my age. I have decided in my heart not to have many people around her. I have a nanny who comes in the morning and goes in the evening, so we are just the two of us in the evening and weekends. It is not easy but I prefer that way because I wanted to bond with her as much as possible. We want to make her happy.”

Asked if he will marry again, Tedd was hesitant but said he is not sure.

“A lot of people love the idea of getting married but they cannot stand the reality of being married. I am happy with my child and God is the author of my future. I can’t predict about it because I don’t know.”
