The celebrity family of Daddy Owen and Rufftone is mourning their father who passed away last Saturday.

And Pulse has learned that the burial will take place next weekend at their home in Eshisiru in Kakamega.

“It is of course a very trying time for us as a family but God has given us grace. We are standing strong,” Rufftone told Pulse.

“Our dad was having a normal evening with our mum at home and at some point, he excused himself to go to the toilet. Suddenly, he fell down and when our mother rushed there, he complained of chest pain. In a matter of seconds, he was dead,” Daddy Owen said of their late father Josephat Mwatia, who died of cardiac arrest.

“The burial will take place next Saturday (October 21) and preparations are on. We will be travelling to Kakamega next week to get all that ready,” he noted.

Yesterday, a fundraising geared at raising money to cater for burial expenses was held at the Nairobi Pentecostal Church, Valley Road.
