The gospel industry has of late been reporting more scandals than the secular industry.
From Bahati to Ringtone, they’ve been trending for all the wrong reasons and now Daddy Owen is the latest to be exposed.
The Vanity hitmaker has been sued by Congolese gospel artiste Reagan Sarkozi aka Mwana wa Nzambe he is demanding over Ksh2 million in damages for unpaid royalties.
He claimed he wrote for Owen his Vanity song but instead he gave fellow artiste Pitson credits for it yet he wrote 3/4s of it. The song so far has 2.6 million views.
Sarkozi took to social media to bash him.
Daddy Owen you need to give me credit for Wewe ni Mungu. I wrote the song, you excluded me from the credits and did not pay me. You also gave credit to Pitson for writing Vanity yet I’m the one who wrote it. Pitson only finished the last bit,’ he said in a video.
In another post he begged the Kenyan superstar to pay him.
Owen nipe haki yangu,’ he wrote.
Sarkozi’s lawyers served Daddy Owen with the letter below.
Kenyans took to social media to lash out at Daddy Owen, who’s yet to respond to the allegations.
