Ruth Matete wearing many colours

Take heart Ruth Matete – These other celebs have also experienced grief and loss

Ruth Matete has gone through so much pain this year that I can’t even begin to contemplate how bad it has been for her.

For her, Covid-19 is most likely a footnote in 2020, the bigger story for the gospel singer is that she lost her husband BelovedJohn Apewajoy barely four months after they had gotten married.

The similarities between Ruth Matete’s new song, “Damu Yako” ]] “It is well with my soul”

That event while tragic was made much worse after the Nigerian government prevented her from burying John, only allowing her to do so, 3 months after his untimely death.

Ruth took a break from social media to try and mourn in private, only emerging last month to update her fans on her progress.

Ruth who is pregnant with the late John’s son shared a heart-rending message yesterday. Ruth explained how tough the experience had been for her saying that she believed that she might have been taking a long time in the mourning phase.

“Truth is some days are very hard. When death knocks at your door, there’s nothing you can do. Some days, voices in my head tell me am taking too long in this mourning phase.”

But Ruth has promised herself that she will not be too hard on herself vowing to be patient in her journey.

I patiently wait for the day God will heal me totally. But then again, some days I doubt if this kind of pain can totally heal. So I ask God to give me a new heart instead. Till then, I’ll smile when God gives me a chance to. I will laugh when God allows me to. But above all, I will keep serving Him.

Ruth’s journey with grief mirrors some other prominent celebs who have also undergone the loss of a loved one. Some other celebs who have gone through harrowing experiences with loss are below;

Size 8 and Dj Mo

The couple had a miscarriage in late 2018 that threatened to harm the integrity of their marriage. Dj Mo said that they made sure they didn’t blame each other over the loss although they said the pain was too much.

Grace Ekirapa

The Crossover101 host has narrated how tough it was for her to lose her mother while she was still a young girl, saying that her mom who died nearly two decades ago had left a void that she couldn’t ever fill.

Willis Raburu and Maryaprude Raburu

Raburu and his then-wife Marya lost their baby girl on January 1st, 2020. That loss would be the beginning of the unraveling of their relationship.

The two are currently no longer together and one would be hard-pressed to give a reason for the break-up other than the grief they experienced after they lost their child.

Tedd Josiah

The experienced veteran music producer lost his wife and mother to his baby girl in October 2017. Since then, Josiah has mourned and remembered his late wife Regina Katar in numerous posts, showing that every person has their own way of dealing with loss.
