A man in Kisumu shocked the public after organizing a two-day fete to celebrate his three-year-old son’s birthday, to what has been rumored to have cost close to half a million.

Photos of the extravagant occasion that have been widely shared on Facebook show the man, who goes by the name Daggy Owila, in the company of the birthday boy, Rayan Owila, his wife, all dressed in African attire of Kitenge and two men holding traditional fly whisks.

The party also included traditional dancers with father and son seen in one of the pictures taking to the dance floor.

However, from the picture one cannot pass from seeing the scared looks on birthday boy while looking at the dancers in traditional attire.

The three-year-old also had his own security detail at his party that looks to have taken place at a palatial house.


According to Lee Mwakiny, who shared pictures of the birthday party on his Facebook page, the party was an invite only event which started on Saturday and was expected to end on Sunday.

“Part Two of the biggest birthday party in Kisumu is about to begin. According to Daggy Owila, the father of the birthday boy Rayan, the whole event will cost him the small amount of slightly over 500K. Attendance by cards only. Dress code African attire,” he wrote in a post on Facebook.

The father’s personal Facebook account gives hints of his political ambition. An earlier post indicates that Mr Owila intends to vie for a Memebr of County Assembly seat in Migosi, Kisumu County in next year’s General Election on an ODM ticket.
