Tedd decided to raise his daughter as a single parent following Reginah’s death. He recently took to social media to talk about raising his daughter as a single parent.
“A great misconception is…“You’re a man you got it figured out. Men can get through anything they are tough. Life favours men….. I’m gonna speak from my heart. Raising a child from infancy alone is not a joke and it’s triple tough for a man to raise an infant with no knowledge…. learning on the job and still having to provide,” wrote Tedd Josiah in part.
The award-winning music producer went on to talk about how he was scared for his dependents when he fell sick and couldn’t work for four weeks.
“The past 4 weeks I’ve taken off work due to an illness have also shown me that whether you’re a man or woman raising a child alone and working, once you take time off, it’s as good as your family starving regardless of whether you’re a mom or dad. It is scarier having to face your mortality and wondering what would happen,” wrote Tedd.
He added that;
“Kindly pray for parents, whether single or not, whether moms or dads cause the journey of life and survival isn’t as picture-perfect as you might think it to be. Also, let’s build-up and support Kenyan owned businesses that create jobs for Kenyans because these are rough times for a lot of families. Let’s not look, gaze and not build each other.
