Reports say that John passed on last night in hospital after sustaining burn injuries.\u00a0 "So, last week on Monday, the Matetes bought some cooking gas, but there was some excess gas in the cylinder. "So, her hubby took it at the balcony to try release the excess gas. "It happened that some gas got trapped inside his clothes and when he had fixed it back and tried putting on the cooker, he just caught fire. "He ran to the sitting room shouting 'babe help me' and that's when Ruth called the neighbours who helped to put off the fire. "They took him to the hospital where he's been doing so well until yesterday. "We lost him in the night," said a friend in a viral voice recording.\u00a0 Ruth has been hit hard by her husband's demise, especially after reports indicated that she's in her first trimester of her pregnancy.\u00a0 When\u00a0PD Online\u00a0called Ruth, she didn't answer the phone herself, but another person who only identified herself as a close friend said: "She can't talk right now, but it's true (the hubby's passing on. Try calling later please."The\u00a0Damu Yako\u00a0hit singer got married to John in November, 2019.
