Thursday, August 22, 2019-Celebrated Kenyan comedian, Daniel Ndambuki alias Churchill says he wishes he got a chance to celebrate departed Benga maestro John DeMathew.

The popular Kikuyu singer died last weekend after his car rammed into a lorry at Blue Post Hotel along Thika Road.

While Kenyans have been paying tribute to the fallen singer, the veteran comedian regrets he never got to celebrate him when he was alive.

Speaking to a local daily, Churchill said: 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,” 

 “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.

Churchill, who has nurtured several comedians via his popular Creative Industry company, advises other artistes to take lessons from DeMathew's music career.

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 stated.

DeMathew was  laid to rest on Saturday, August 24,  at Mukurwe village with President Uhuru Kenyatta among the national leaders who attendend the funeral.
