Singer and Pastor Ruth Matete is today celebrating her late husband’s birthday in a different way considering that it is the first since his demise.
The late beloved John Apewajoye would today be turning a year older and Ruth says she is finding it quite difficult to keep herself together.
In a rather emotional post, Ruth remembered her late husband as she asked Kenyans to pray for her.
According to her, ignoring such a special day and the emotion that comes with it has proved to be such a struggle.
“Today, Sept 22nd, my late husband would be turning a year older. Tried to ignore the emotions, but it’s hard. Say a prayer for me” she wrote
Matete sent this message very early in the morning, around 4:30 AM and this could mean that she equally struggled to get some sleep,
The sudden death of her husband was such a big blow to the singer since they had barely spent a year in marriage.
The couple was also expecting a child together who is yet to be born and already had a name for their baby.
John died in April after a fire accident which saw him succumb to severe burns.
His death also fueled controversy as Ruth had to endure grief and trolls at the same time following claims that she was violent and might have killed her husband.
John was buried in July in Langata cemetery and later after his wife, Matete made a comeback on social media after a long time of silence.
