I am sick about all these questions about Zach and my marriage. Are you asking because you genuinely care, or you just want tea? Examine your heart and your intentions,”

The two loved birds got married in 2016 and have three kids

‘When I met him for the first time, he had just been introduced to our department. I just remember looking at him and thinking, ‘wow, God took his time with this man.’ I was dating someone at that time, but the relationship was not that serious. It was like for 2 months and in two months can you really say you are dating anyone?” Joan recalled.

5.Daddy Owen

“When the story came out, I was like…oh! I wouldn’t be the person to confirm it after all. But the fact is that whether I talk about it or not, the truth will eventually come out. I wouldn’t be the one to come out and tarnish her name and if I wanted to discuss our family issues, I would have done that a long time ago. The truth is out there. It’s hard to fight it. I wish her all the best,” said Owen.

A saddened Daddy Owen, who is trying to come to terms, continued with his revelations .

He added that; “We have been discussing our issues as a couple and consulting when things don’t go right. We haven’t been agreeing on everything and that is human.

However, when one wrong leads to another, you really have to get concerned and start thinking hard. When it came to that, I fell into depression and could lock myself in the house and cry, asking God why this was going on.

I stopped writing and releasing songs, as my creativity wasn’t working. I could not pray, as I felt weak inside. I contemplated doing everything wrong, even death.

Nothing in life makes sense. The worst bit is that everyone out there thinks you have it all put together and life is progressive,”.

Asked whether they were going for divorce, Daddy Owen replied with a bible verse from the book of Matthew

“There is only one main ground for divorce in the Bible. Go read Mathew 19. It is all explained there and so that is all I can say about that for now,” replied Owen.

Word on the streets has it that Owen and Wambui are currently in a legal tussle in which she demanded that he pulls down her pictures and those of their children from his social media pages.

It is confusing because we were just fine, in layman’s language I would say she found her happiness in something else and it is her right, same way I would have wanted her to understand me. Everyone is supposed o be happy. It is so hard to let a girl go not because she did anything wrong to you but just because maybe she wanted to find her happiness in something else, for example a job,” Mejja said.

He also noted that it was the toughest decision to make and he had to let the fate take its way.

”We parted way in December 2020, and it depressed me. Have tried talking to her twice about this but we have not come to a solution because it is a very tricky issue. I wish the happiness she wanted was something I could get from the shop, would have given her.” he added.
