Daddy Owen, the Kenyan gospel musician, has once again spoken out about his search for a “kienyeji” (rural) wife. In an interview with Radio Jambo, Owen said that he had been unsuccessful in his search, despite having taken a long time to find a suitable candidate.
Owen said that he was also too busy with work to continue his search. “The work has been a lot,” he said. “Right now, I don’t plan to look anymore.”
Seven months ago, Owen announced that he was looking for a local girl to fill the gap left by his divorced wife. He had specific criteria for his ideal wife, including that she be from a rural area.
Various women, including YouTube blogger Pritty Vishy, came forward to express their interest in Owen. However, Owen said that none of the women who came forward met all of his criteria.
At the moment, Owen is focused on his work with a center for children with disabilities in Kijabe called CARE. The center has already been completed and has begun serving children. Owen said that the center has a large extension with rooms for children who are waiting to be accepted to live there with their parents or guardians.
Owen’s search for a wife has been unsuccessful, but he is still focused on his work and helping others. He is a role model for many people, and his work with CARE is an inspiration to others.
