Tedd Josiah speaks on challenges of being a single father

Celebrated music producer and entrepreneur Tedd Josiah on Friday opened up on the challenges he is facing as a single father, saying it is far from easy.

Through a post on social media, the Jokajok founder said raising his daughter and working on his brand has been challenging yet society expects one to navigate such 'as a man'.

"Raising a child from infancy is tough especially if you're walking the journey alone...Having to find a new path and raising a start-up like JOKAJOK has been like raising 2 babies at the same time and the responsibility starts and stops with u.

"I don't think we are designed to see a single dad and a person who is struggling, after all "he is a man he will figure it out and shouldn't complain" we don't see that the world doesn't care if your grieving, sick and high blood pressure, raising an infant and jobless," he wrote.

Josiah called on society to be supportive of single parents as they wade through life as they also need love and kindness.

"You will still have to "figure it out" whether you're a man or a woman. Let's learn to see both genders as they walk this journey of parenthood and enterprise together."

In a previous post, he said raising a child as a single father is three times as tough because you have to learn on the job as you provide.

The music producer became a single father after his wife Regina Katar died back in 2017.

Expressing his hurt in a post in 2021, Tedd referred to his late wife as his anchor, and even though she was gone, he had to push himself to be strong for their daughter.

"Imagine calling someone your everything home, safe place, your all, and watching them slowly fade away on their deathbed in less than an hour. I was left on a free fall and lost. In many ways, Regina was my anchor. I have to make a lot of adjustments; I am more hands-on with my baby. I have to wash her, clean, cook, feed, and be always there for her," he wrote at the time.
