Veteran Kenyan singer Suzanna Owiyo on December 10 revealed that her 14-year-old niece was missing. Taking to her social media to post a missing child alert, the singer revealed that the girl identified as Susan Adhiambo Owiyo, 14, was last seen on December 8. According to Owiyo, the teenager was last seen in Dandora Phase Three at 10 pm.
“Help me find my niece. She was last seen in Dandora Phase Three on Tuesday at 10pm,” a desperate Owiyo tweeted, urging anyone, especially residents of Dandora, who might have any information as to her whereabouts to report to the nearest police station. “Anyone with information about her whereabouts can contact the numbers on the poster or report to the nearest Police Station. Kindly share widely,” she added.
However, her worried fans can now breath a sigh of relief after the singer went on to reveal that her niece has been found. “We thank God. She’s safe & sound. Thank you for your prayers,” tweeted the benga bigwig.

Owiyo a was on the spotlight in March this year when she told off a section of Kenyan men for rushing to buy sanitisers in the wake of coronavirus outbreak in the country. The Kisumu 100 songbird shared on Twitter how women have been using sanitisers all along and pointed out how men go for short calls haphazardly and thereafter going about normal business without cleaning hands.
“Sanitisers have been there. Ladies can connect. It’s ideal for emergency use. Let me address some Kenyan men! Hii tabia ya kunyora ovyo ovyo kando ya bara bara muache.Tusaidiane hapa. Kama ni lazima,beba sanitizer mfukoni. H/ever washing hands with soap is more effective,” tweeted Owiyo.
The award-winning artist later also found herself on the receiving end after she appeared to vindicate police from accusations of excessive use of force while enforcing the 7 pm to 5 am curfew ordered by President Uhuru Kenyatta earlier in the year.
In a tweet that was since deleted, Owiyo termed citizens as hard-headed, a character she said always annoyed and pushed law enforces to the limit thus forcing them to act. “At times police are forced to go hard on Wanjiku (citizens) simply because we are vichwa ngumu (hardheaded). Plan yourself not to be caught up on the wrong side of the law. Your safety is important as well as your health. Can we all have an understanding here,” read the tweet that she later deleted following a scathing attack from netizens.
