Tedd Josiah is one of the most accomplished of music producers in Kenya. The man has seen and done it all, even founding one of the most revered Kenyan award shows, the Lisima Awards.
As much as he has been successful in his professional life, his personal life has been a topsy turvy affair, which he recently spoke about on an episode of Unscripted with Grace that is hosted by Grace Msalame.
The man revealed that his first marriage was problematic as he was pushed into it with a woman that bore him his first two kids.
“I was in a space where I wasn’t ready to be a family man. I was breaking people more than I was building them and everything that I had built was false. You know how you grow up and you are told you are supposed to get married and live in a certain way. I was just ticking boxes and then I realized I don’t even love this person.”
The result of the relationship was two kids who are now all grown-up. Sadly, the producer was to leave those kids and their mother behind as he sought refuge in the UK.
His actions haunted him and he promised himself that he would make sure he made amends. But that wasn’t to happen as he fell in love with his late wife, Regina Katar who would become the love of his life.
The couple was blessed with a baby girl but sadly Katar died after suffering complications from childbirth.
“I realized I wanted a second chance, I really wanted it. Now we have a bond with my kids, all three of them. I love them to bits. They spend a lot of time with me at home but because they are in their teens, I isolate them from social media because it can get a bit rough.”
