Late Kikuyu singer John De'Mathew's wife Caroline Waithera has narrated her love journey with her hubby while giving fans a taste of what they never used to share publicly.
Caroline DeMathew's sweet moments with hubby
The beautiful YouTuber was on her YouTube channel talking about the impact the late singer had in her life and the memories the two made before death snatched him.
“Niliacha kazi mahali nilikuwa, akaniekea job. Hio ni zile enji tulikuwa tunaekewa shop za Mpesa. Akaniekea duka tukaiita De'Mathew communications. Tukaweka phones na accessory za simu. Na bado nilikuwa na burn music yake because ilikua zile enzi za CD,” she said.
She said business was popping then which later saw the musician move her from where she was staying to a new environment.
“Huskii alinitoa kwa bedsitter nilikua akanipeleka kwa estate,” she said.
He then employed someone to take care of their baby because they would move around a lot when he would go to perform.
Waithera also shared that one day they went to Kinangop, where they saw potatoes being sold and she asked De'Mathew to buy a sack.
But because she was living in a place she could not place the sack, she took it to her mum's place and she started selling it.
Then they went back while enjoying a road trip and came back with five sacks which she started selling.
“Nikauliza John na mbona nisianze kuuza hizi waru,” she added.
She then started walking to hotels and supermarkets to pitch she was selling potatoes and ended up getting deals.
At one point, the musician gifted her a Mercedes but she wanted something that she would use for business.
“So there's is Mercedez Benz that he had gifted me for my birthday. I asked him to sell it and get me a Probox that would help me carry the potatoes. He actually bought me two Probox and you know a Probox ukilalisha kiti, inabeba hadi gunia nane za waru,” she said.
Waithera says De'Mathew was prophet
Elsewhere, while it's been three years since Kikuyu singer De'Mathew died, and one of his widows has taken it upon herself to keep his memory alive.
Waithera launched a YouTube channel where she is taking fans down memory lane and revealing to them things they didn't know about the fallen legend.
She narrated how the late singer prophesied about her giving birth to a boy based on a dream he had about her dad.
