Gospel singer Daddy Owen is looking to take a stab at marriage again after parting ways with his ex-wife Farida Wairimu.
Speaking during a recent phone interview, the Vanity crooner explained that his mother is worried that he is getting lonely and suggested he considers getting married again.
The award-winning singer said he is ready to do so provided the lady ticks a number of boxes.
“If I get someone right now I am very willing to settle down. I want her to be prayerful and from the village. The ones in Nairobi are already too spoilt. I want one from the village who by the time she starts knowing the ways of Nairobi I will have led her in the right path,” he said.
Coupled with that, the singer added that the lady should be in her late 20s and early 30s and should have at least cleared high school.
“I also want one that has studied. She can be a kienyeji but one that has gone to school, even a form four leaver. She should preferably be in her late 20’s and early 30’s,” he added.
Daddy Owen has been single since separating from his ex-wife Farida. Opening up on his troubled marriage in a previous interview with the Standard, the singer admitted that it was tumultuous, leading him to depression.

“We haven’t been agreeing on everything and that is human. However, when one wrong leads to another, you really have to get concerned and start thinking hard. When it came to that, I fell into depression and could lock myself in the house and cry, asking God why this was going on,” he said.
When news of his split hit social media, the singer revealed that he was unable to control the narratives that were doing rounds.
“I remember when it happened I found myself on social media and everyone was talking about me. Have you ever trended by extension? There are times you know you’ve done something which is going to bring trouble but I was trending by extension because I had not done anything wrong. These are challenges that people face and what matters is how you are facing the challenges, how you are dealing with them and how you walk out of them,” he said.
