Musician Daddy Owen has revealed that he is worried about not having other children.

Speaking to Mpasho's writer Elizabeth Ngigi, Owen said he is under pressure that age is catching up with him yet he does not have a family of his own.

Owen said his mum is pressuring him to look for someone to visit her with.


"She tells me to even hire someone just to stop walking alone at home," he said.

"She is worried that I live alone, I walk alone."

Owen, 40, said by now he wanted to have finished siring children.


"I am not prepared since I understand it is not my decision alone, I need to have someone," Owen said that even with money, he is incomplete.

Asked if he is dating, Owen said he is still afraid that he might not make the best after his first marriage crumbled.

"Any move with someone else might trigger my past. I am like, will I treat her well or I will be under the same pressure and the relationship end again?"

He said he wants to date a village girl this time round.

"I am looking for a serious woman to date and marry. I am looking for a dark-skinned woman, very prayerful. She should be from the village," he said.

He said it's the reason he is frequently visiting and running projects in villages.

"I want to get a woman from there. I do not want to date someone who is born in the town," he said.

He also does not want to date someone in the limelight or a celebrity.

"I do not want someone who is always on social media platforms. Staki mtu wa TikTok," he said.

"I want someone who will be mine and not for the whole world. I want someone who will purely concentrate on our marriage, and make me traditional meals."

On how she dresses, Owen said her woman will not put on long trousers.

"I want someone who wears long dresses," he said.

Owen is currently working on launching a children's home in Eldoret in December.

"Children with disability inspired me to do the project, and I want a permanent place where they can be well followed up on their health journey," he said, adding that the children's education will be granted there.

The funding of the project was done by the Safaricom Foundation and cost about a Sh 30 million.

Musically, Owen is working with younger artistes since he wants to tap their talent and mentor them.

"I want to gain the vibe that is in the industry as I mentor them to get the experience," he said.
