This past weekend rumours spread in the entertainment industry that gospel singer Ruth Matete might be with child. The news came as s pleasant surprise considering that she had gotten married in November last year.

In the photo Ruth seemingly has a bulging stomach prompting a section of her Insta-followers to conclude that she was pregnant.
The reactions from her fans, forced the singer to clear the air, stating she was not pregnant but in case it happens she will gladly inform her fans. She added that the picture in question was taken at a time she had put on some weight, as a result of in being a settled relationship.
“With my pepper soup, trying to keep social distance😂No touching. No hugging. Mercy Lord. Just for your information this pic was taken in January. Second ,mtu hawezi tu nona? 😂😂😂 acheni hizo manze🤣 ni Ku settle. Kurekax. Ku enter rest. Time ya baby on board ikifika you will be so sure about it. Sisi ni wake wa kuvuruta tumbo mbele in week two🤣🙈,” reacted Ruth Matete.
