John De Mathew loved to sing about love but most importantly he lived true to most of his lyrical content. He showed his love to his two wives and seven kids until his sudden demise.
Among DeMathew’s two wives is Caroline Waithira.
Carol has featured in De Mathews song ‘Wendo Umaga Kuraya’ which means ‘Love Comes from Far’.
The song highlights how the couple met and how they ended up married.
