Ruth Matete with her husband

‘Tried to ignore the emotions’ Ruth Matete whispers on husbands birthday



Ruth Matete’s late Nigerian husband pastor John Apewajoye would be celebrating his birthday today if he was still alive.

The man of God succumbed to injuries at a city hospital in April following a gas accident. He was later buried in July.

September 22, being his birthday, Ruth took to social media to reveal that she was overpowered by emotions on his special day.

Today, Sept 22nd, my late husband would be turning a year older. Tried to ignore the emotions, but it’s hard. Say a prayer for me๐Ÿ˜”’ she wrote.
