Daddy Owen’s breakup was one of the hottest stories at the beginning of this year. We noted a few lessons men should learn from this. Daddy Owen was the happy winner of an imploding marriage when the word came out that his wife was about to marry another man considering that they are still engaged. I think this is called bigamy.
1. Never marry a single mother.
Enjoy the ride, and then get off when things start to get serious. And do not commit and marry single mothers for the love of God. These relationships tend to have some major problems. First of all, let’s start with the fact that she clearly has poor decision-making skills that led her to end up with the child of a man who didn’t want to be a father. Second, you will never be allowed to discipline her children as if they were your own. You will be constantly reminded that they are her children.
Why was he mourning and moaning at this failed relationship? He was supposed to suck it up and move on. Clearly, the people in his circles are just as useless as they are because they are the source of this information about him. He needs to rethink who his friends are and move quickly to trust only one or two people and shed tears in their presence.
The rest of the world doesn’t need to know anything about his suffering. As a man, showing a chin in the armor is considered weak. That’s why, when the word broke about his failed marriage for the first time, Kenyans mocked him rather than sympathized and empathized him.
- Maybe Owen has realized this by now, men are considered human doings and not human beings.
He was happily married when he was Kenya’s biggest star. When he made money, his wife, Farida was happy to make a home for them and their children. Now that he’s dropped and most of the shows have dried up, her love for him, too, has dried up.
- Never put a woman on a pedestal
Daddy Owen kept on talking about his wife as if she were the only goddess. The problem with putting people on a pedestal is that they have no other way to look at and address us, but by looking down at us. He used to treat her like a superstar, so she was treating him like a groupie. That’s why it was so easy for her to move on with her life.
We are human beings, and at the end of the day, we are defective. He needs to move forward with his life.
