Producer Tedd Josiah has weighed in on the raging debate on social media of talk on ‘decay in social structures’, especially how vulnerable women are treated, and opined that it is about time male celebrities recalibrated and became better role models.

Offering his two cents on questions lingering over celebrities who've dropped the ball and allegedly misused their status over the years, Josiah warned that the use of positions and wealth to lure unsuspecting women was distasteful.

He stated that it is easy for celebrities to lose all and warned of consequences should the practice continue unabated.

“Now brothers when you become predators attacking vulnerable women with your little money just because you know they need it and you can use your cash to hurt, misuse and abuse them know this,” wrote Josiah. “God can and will take that money you are using as a tool to hurt other people, he can and will take that celebrity status you are using to hurt other people, he can and will bring you to your “road to Damascus” and trust me like Saul you will become Paul.”

The businessman added. “Don’t test God just because you are a “celeb” don’t! Let’s raise our daughters to know better men and know men can be better than this.”

Speaking to The Nairobian a year ago on raising his daughter Jay Jay Wendo alone following the passing of his wife Regina Katar after a short illness in October 2017, Josiah expounded on why it is important to give daughter’s, and by extension all women, an environment that is as “peaceful and positive as possible”.

“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,” said Josiah.

Commanding a huge following on social media for his father-daughter bond and insights into his life as a widower with a young child, he noted that to honor Katar’s memory, he kept all her stuff from Wendo until she is of age.

“If I was still living in the UK, I would be able to take some time off work and still have an allowance to take care of the baby, and though it wouldn’t be much, it would mean we have a roof over our heads and food to eat as she grows to the age of attending school before I go back to work. I’ve also had to tighten my circle since not everyone who comes into your life wants the best for you,” he added.

To fathers in the same spot, the producer whose Midas touch is indelible in works by Gidi Gidi Maji Maji and Necessary Noize pointed out the importance of unity.

“If you’ve got kids, cuddle them and walk this journey together. You need each other. God is able. He will renew me every day and He will take my ashes and give me beauty. I have learnt to depend on God more,” he narrated.
