Daddy Owen to launch disability awards in December
After launching his campaign against discrimination of disabled people through his hit song Mbona, Daddy Owen will soon be launching awards for them. "The event which is my main focus right now will be in December and it will feature most disabled but talented musicians," said Daddy Owen, a former street thug who lost one of his eyes after being beaten up by a mob.
Daddy Owen has previously confessed to being a huge fan of blind gospel singer Mary Atieno. He recently worked with a blind artiste, Denno, in the song Mbona. The song is getting massive airplay. It has two versions: a shorter one for TV and a documentary version that features some of the relatives of known personalities including Anne Ngugi whose daughter suffers from hydrocephalus, Emmy Kosgei whose father moves in a wheelchair and pastors Allan and Kathy Kyuna of the Jubilee Church who have a child suffering from autism and DJ Pinye who has a disabled brother.
