  • Gospel Musician Ruth Matete on Saturday, September 19, called out pastors who had abandoned her when her husband died and during the drama that ensued after.

    In a post on her social media, Matete faulted the religious leaders for not offering support during the tumultuous period of her life. 

    The worship leader alleged that the pastors did not want people to know that she served in their churches.

    "When I was going through hell and high waters and scandal was my name, you turned and kept your distance. You only want to be associate with me when I am the star and being celebrated.

    "If there is something that hurt that time is when pastors I have ministered in their churches left me. In fact some of them came up with prophecies during their live broadcasts saying that God showed them I would go to jail and that I was guilty," she claimed.

    The Tusker Project Fame winner added that the individuals who had turned their backs on her were now checking up on her.

    "I have had to pick my own broken pieces and try to move on and you are, calling me, texting me. telling me you were praying for me yet you avoided me like a plague," she stated.

    Matete added that she was done with the fake individuals in her life as she had seen kindness from strangers and abandoned by those she thought were her friends.

    "If you are for me, act like it. If you are not, act like it. Stay in your lane. Do not come to my inbox. I will blast you! I will screenshot it and post it here. I am done with fake people and with religion," she proclaimed.

    "I don't have to be loved by everybody. But please don't confuse the angels assigned to me. If you are for me, act like it. If you're not, act like it. Stay in your lane. Don't come to my inbox after reading this post," she asserted.

    Matete's husband Beloved John Apewajoye died in April 2020 from injuries sustained after a gas explosion at their home. He spent twelve days in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) before passing away.

    Beloved John's body had been lying at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) Mortuary since April after the Nigerian High Commission requested to have his body detained until the Nigerian government approved its release.
