Gospel artiste Daddy Owen has defended fellow Kenyan artistes after most of them failed to attend the burial of the late Papa Dennis on Wednesday.

Speaking exclusively to Mpasho Owen said

‘ I can give three reasons, LIkuyani is very far and travelling there needs planning.

The second reason is that the memorial in Nairobi had been so that those who could not travel can pay their last respects.

Lastly the burial was on a weekend, I feel if it was a weekend most people wangetokelezea.’

Gospel artiste Papa Dennis was laid to rest yesterday at his parents’ home in Matunda, Likuyani constituency, Kakamega County.

The Foundation hit maker died tow weeks ago and his body was found near Jubilee Headquarters.

Some of the gospel artistes who attended Papa Dennis’ funeral include Daddy Owen, Ringtone Apoko, Gloria Muliro. Mash Mjukuu, the owner of the studio.
