I Wish I Celebrated John De’Mathew When He was Alive – Churchill regrets

Comedian Daniel Ndambuki aka Churchill is regretting not giving the late Benga musician John D’Mathew the type of admiration and celebration he deserved while he was alive.

The singer died in an accident during the weekend along the Nairobi Meru highway.

“Unfortunately, I never got to celebrate him when he was alive, and I wish I got the chance to host him and tell him he was a legend,” he said.


Churchill went on to describe De’Mathew as the Michael Jackson of his genre and asking other artists to copy his model of work and consistency.

“It’s a big loss and he has left a big gap, but the best thing we can take from him is that he has left us with a lot of his music and so he will be treasured in our minds and hearts. That consistency is what we wish for, not music that will only last for two weeks. De Mathew’s songs will be sung even in generations to come. I look forward to seeing the entertainment industry getting the respect it deserves,” he said.
