    She then went on to address the reports that she and the musician had a fling, by quoting one of his songs..

    “The crowd doesn't attack he that goes to their homes, you cant understand their issues Njogu wa Nyawira, the laughs you have with them aren't genuine. If they crucified Jesus then leave them alone,” she sang a line of the song.

    She stated that people had a right to talk but it wasn’t necessary for her to listen to them.

    It is at this point that she revealed that she considered DeMathew as her elder brother while narrating how they met in the music industry.

    “John (DeMathew) and I met in the music industry when I was a radio presenter and I saw his talent,” the legislator spoke.

    Sabina further disclosed how she questioned him about his struggling financial status, despite having produced so many songs.

    After his confession on the exploitation by the music producers, Sabina introduced DeMathew to the video world and helped him become the first-ever Kikuyu musician to produce a music video CD.

    The politician further divulged that she was the brains behind the script written for the song Njata Yakwa (My Star) that she also starred in as a vixen.

    After the massive success that the video enjoyed, they became close friends and it was then that was rumours of them being together started.

    The MP revealed that even after John married a woman named Sabina Wairimu, their friendship still shone and she accompanied the late musician to the hospital to pick his wife after the birth of their first child.
