Well-Known Kikuyu Benga Musician Dies In Car Accident


On Saturday, 17 August 2019, revelers at Tracc Palace were entertained by a John De’Mathew live music performance not knowing he would be dead shortly thereafter.

Musician John De’Mathew died on Sunday night in a road accident at Blue Post Hotel along Thika superhighway. According to sources, he was alone in the car when it rammed into a lorry from behind. Good Samaritans rushed him to hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival at Thika Nursing Home.

 

The outpouring of grief from netizens was immediate as John De’Mathew was greatly loved for his songs that touched on socio-political issues and were a great source of inspiration to many. He was also slated to perform at the much hyped Mugiithi Festival in September. He was also the chairman of the newly formed Tamco Sacco which seeks to uplift the lives of musicians.

He will be greatly missed.
