Monday, January 4, 2021 –Kenyan gospel artist Owen Mwatia or Daddy Owen has finally deleted from Instagram all the photos he had taken with his estranged wife Faridah.
This is after it came clear that Daddy Owen brother to rapper Rafftone had been left by his four year long wife with whom they held a grand wedding that culminated into an expensive honey moon before they finally settled down. The two got lucky with two kids.
And despite all the manly efforts the Vanity hit maker put into this relationship, previous year ruined this all and the breakup news spread around like bush fire.
Faridah Wambui, Owen’s ex-fiancee, according to well-placed sources, left the singer for a Naivasha based tycoon who runs a chain of restaurants and hotels. Efforts by Owen to get back the wife did not bring fruits as already she had officially been engaged to the tycoon.
From Owen’s own words, the wife had asked for a permission to go for a three day work related activities when she did not return. This forced the singer to start looking for her physically. A day later, a family member whispered to him that the wife was under someone’s custody in Naivasha Town.
“Farida is secretly engaged to a tycoon from Gilgil who owns a luxury hotel. Daddy Owen only got to find out she is engaged through pals. The ostentatious engagement ceremony was hosted in Naivasha,” A close Owen’s family member broke the news.
Kenyans who loved Daddy Owen’s music reacted to this development with different comments with many condemning the wife for ditching her man at the hour of need. Some blamed her for ruining Owen’s music career and then leaving him dry and high.
“Marriage is a scam hizi ujinga za ndoa ndio zilifanya music career yako ikashuka,” Blessed Kagwe wrote.
And on a Sunday January 3rd, Owen’s Instagram appeared to have been wiped off all the photos of Faridah proving that, at last, the talented singer had come to terms with her departure from home just like the wise saying, “If you love someone let her go!”
