Kenyans Seek Answers: Where is Daddy Owen After Charlene Ruto’s Prayer Request?


Kenyans on social media have expressed their concern and curiosity over the whereabouts of gospel singer Daddy Owen, who has been missing from the public eye for a while.


The speculation was sparked by a recent post by Charlene Ruto, the daughter of President William Ruto and a youth champion, who shared a prayer request for her husband on her Instagram page.


Charlene posted a photo of herself and her husband, whom she identified as Brian, with the caption: “Please pray for my husband. He is going through a tough time and needs God’s intervention. He is a good man and I love him so much. Thank you for your prayers and support. God bless you all.”


The post, which has since been deleted, attracted mixed reactions from netizens, some of whom wondered if Charlene was referring to Daddy Owen, who is also known as Brian.


Some of the comments read:


– “Is that Daddy Owen? Where has he been? I hope he is okay.”

– “Charlene, please tell us what is going on with Daddy Owen. We miss his music and his presence.”

– “I pray that God will heal and restore your husband. He is a blessing to many.”

– “This is not Daddy Owen. Stop spreading rumors and respect their privacy.”

– “Who is this Brian? Charlene, are you married to Daddy Owen or someone else?”


Daddy Owen, whose real name is Owen Mwatia, is a renowned Kenyan gospel artist known for his unique blend of music that combines gospel, hip-hop, and R&B influences. He is the brother of award-winning gospel musician Rufftone and the founder of Malaika Awards, which seeks to honour artists with disabilities.


Daddy Owen has been silent on social media since December 2020, when he confirmed that his marriage to Farida Wambui had ended after six years. He said that he was going through a difficult time and asked for prayers and privacy.


Charlene Ruto, on the other hand, is a youth champion, climate action champion and a pan-Africanist. She uses her position in society to advocate for the young people of Africa through her 30 Things plan. She also works on climate action and agriculture issues, and invites partnerships and volunteers to join her cause.


Charlene has not revealed much about her personal life, except that she is married to Brian and that they have a son named Liam. She has also not commented on the rumors linking her to Daddy Owen, nor has she clarified who her husband is.


It is not clear whether Charlene and Daddy Owen are related or have any connection, apart from sharing the same surname and first name of their spouses. However, some sources have claimed that Charlene and Daddy Owen are distant cousins, while others have dismissed the claims as baseless.


As the mystery continues, Kenyans are eagerly waiting for Daddy Owen to resurface and address the issues surrounding his life and career. They are also hoping that Charlene will shed more light on her husband’s situation and identity. Until then, they can only pray and speculate..
