On Thursday, gospel artist Ruth Matete's husband John Olakami, was buried at the Lang'ata cemetery.

John's body has been lying at Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) Mortuary since April 11 when he succumbed to fire-related injuries while undergoing treatment at the hospital.

During the burial ceremony, Matete moved mourners with her eulogy, after she revealed that the two were expecting a baby boy,.

In fact, before his death, the late John had already picked out a name for their son.

“It is a boy so he is Joshua. I’ll tell Toluwa of how kind you were pastor Beloved and what a true man of God you were. 2 Corinthians 5:8. Continue being with the lord my darling husband.” The name Joshua means “Yahweh is deliverance” or “salvation.


She added by saying;

“Sometimes I feel you when your time had come because of how you had put things in order like naming the baby. We agreed to call him Joshua Toluwa Apewajoye if it’s a boy and Joanna Toluwa Apewajoye if it’s a girl.”

May John rest in eternal peace.
