Two of Kenya’s biggest gospel acts, Daddy Owen and Rufftone are mourning the death of their father – Mr Mwatia.
He passed away on the night of Saturday, October 7, following what has been termed as a “sudden cardiac arrest” at his home in Kakamega county.
The younger of the two singing siblings, Daddy Owen, confirmed the news via a social media post that their dad had gone to be with the Lord. Funeral arrangements are ongoing.
“I pray this finds you well, it’s with sadness to inform you that we lost our dad on Saturday night due to a sudden cardiac arrest at our rural home. It is, therefore, my honor to invite you to a thanksgiving service this Thursday 12th Oct at NPC Valley Rd 5-7pm. Keep us in your prayers. Bless.” He said.
Mr Mwatia leaves behind a widow and five children; four sons who are all musicians and a daughter, reports Mpasho.
