Early life

Daddy Owen was born in Kakamega, Western Kenya in 1982. He is the second born in a family of four brothers, all musicians and a sister. His elder brother Rufftone is a gospel musician who Daddy Owen refers to as “my inspiration”. He is an alumnus of Eshihiru Secondary school but was not lucky enough to join a tertiary institution due to financial constraints. He thus had to travel to Nairobi where he worked as a matatu tout. The income he earned from this job was so meagre that it could not sustain his needs and that of his family. Daddy Owen has always confessed that he used to be a pickpocket in Downtown Nairobi and thus was until he was attacked by a mob and almost lynched.

“It all happened in a split second. All I remember was lying down surrounded by a huge crowd who beat me up mercilessly. One poked my eye using a sharp instrument. Meanwhile, I could hear the rest urging someone to bring a car tyre to burn me alive,”

After spending a whole week in an eye hospital in Kikuyu, he decided to turn over a new leaf. He however remains with a scar on his left eye that he conceals with his pair of sunglasses.
