When asked about his current relationship status, Daddy Owen replied he is not dating anyone at the moment.

He spoke passionately about Kijabe Hospital facility that he had helped to fund, using money donated by the Safaricom foundation.

“I helped the facility. It was during my birthday, and I looked for funding and built the wards. It was Sh25 million and Sylvia Mulinge gave us money from the Safaricom foundation.”
