Gospel musician Reuben Kigame lost his wife in a grisly road accident in 2006. It was such a painful lose to him since his late wife was his childhood sweetheart.
Speaking during an interview with Word Is, Kigame opened up about the death of his wife, how it deeply affected him and how he managed to cope with the lose.
“It is not easy losing a friend because Mercy was a friend and my confidant. We grew up together. She was the girl of my youth and we faced challenges together for 15 years. Losing her was paralysing and I didn’t know that I could continue moving on because I didn’t know what was lying ahead. But through the encouragement of my pastors and friends, I realised I had to move on,” said Reuben Kigame.
Kigame also narrated how he was forced to fulfill his parental duties alone following the death of his wife. He disclosed that he used to take his daughters to the salon and even cooked with them.
“Raising my kids, especially the girls, has been so great. I could even take them to the salon and wait for their hair to be done and even cook together with them. I like being with my family,” Kigame said.
The celebrated gospel singer later on married his second wife Julie. The two have been blessed with a son together.
