Award-winning gospel singer Owen Mwatia, popularly known as Daddy Owen has recovered from Covid-19.
In a lengthy Instagram post, the Vanity singer narrated how he first discovered he had contracted the virus and how it affected his mental and physical health.
"One day after an early morning workout I felt weirdly tired! The first thing I did was get some good sleep; when I woke up later I had some weird test in my mouth and immediately I knew it… this is Covid-19," he said.
After testing positive for the deadly virus, Owen says he tried to remain calm by not stressing his body and mind. The singer says he focused on God, ate well, and stayed in isolation.
"I remember calling my mum to tell her how hard it was for me just to sit and wait for the 14 days to be over without going to work. She told me to count myself blessed since others are in the hospital and do not know if they will make it," said Owen.
Following his mother's advice, Owen says he started looking at things from a different perspective, and despite losing 3kgs in two weeks, he is grateful to God for healing him.
