Nigerian man married to Kenyan gospel singer Ruth Matete dies after a tragic gas accident at home.
Kenyan singer, Ruth Matete has lost her Nigerian husband recognized as Pastor John Apewajoye just a few months after the two got married in a beautiful wedding.
The news about his death was confirmed today, April 12, 2020 by the singer on her Facebook page.
According to reports, the deceased was working on fixing their gas cylinder which was not working at first. He took it outside and tried to release some of the excess gas and returned it back to the house. As he tried to light the cylinder, it suddenly commanded a big explosion.
Ostensibly, when he released some of the excess gas, most of it was absorbed by clothes hanging on the lines which caught fire and accidentally got to him.
Ruth and her neighbours were able to put out the fire and hurried John to the hospital where he was admitted. The neighbours revealed that Ruth had asked for friends to help out in fundraising for her husband’s hospital bills which were rising by the day.
The singer had been told that John was out of danger and would heal slowly but things turned for the worst when he died just a few days after getting out of ICU.
It is rumoured that the deceased had gotten 45 percent burns and was fighting for his life when he suddenly passed.
The couple who have been married for 5 months were expecting their first baby before the incident.
