Did John De Mathew predict his death? Well, he sang a song dedicated the song to his lover Peris Nduku, who died a few years ago.
In the song titled, Peris Nduku, he narrates his love story with her.
My dear Nduku I miss so much God you took my lover but one day we will meet. If you were anywhere even Mombasa, I would visit.
The two were involved in an accident in Limuru and Nduku succumbed while receiving treatment in hospital.
We were coming from visiting our parents in Gatanga for Christmas but you died in an accident.
In the song he says, their car rolled three times in Limuru and they were rushed to Aga Khan hospital.
I remember the first thing I asked the doctor after I gained consciousness was to call Peris Nduku. I only wanted to know if she was still alive or not. I was told she was admitted at ward 4 in the same hospital but couldn’t believe what I saw upon visiting her ward.
She called me by name John and told me ‘kiss me for the last time because I don’t think I’ll survive.’
She told me ‘My love, don’t worry I’m going to prepare a better place for you in heaven” that was her last words.
He goes ahead to narrate how he felt after Nduku’s death.
I tried to speak to you but you never responded and that left me heartbroken.
I pray that the good Lord keeps you in a better place and when my day comes, we will meet. Wait for me my love, I’m on my way. RIP my love. Hii ni nia ya wote.
