Gospel singer Pastor Ruth Matete has disclosed that she is ready to date again.
The singer revealed this after being single for over 2 years after his husband, Beloved John Apewajoye’s death in 2020.
Shoot your shot
Matete said she had promised herself to stay single for at least two years before getting into a new relationship.
She went ahead to ask men to try their luck if they are attracted to her.
“I told myself I would give myself about two years before I can now think about being with another man. It’s actually two years past so shoot your shot if you wanna shoot your shot,” Matete said.

The 36-year-old also noted that she is selective on the kind of man that she would get into a relationship and settle down with.
As such, Matete said she is looking for a man who is mature, able to make own decisions and ready to settle down.
“I don’t want young men. I want older men. I am not a child and I will be 37 next year. I need someone who understands. When you come, you know what you have come to do,” the singer noted.
Ruth Matete and hubby Beloved John Apewajoye
Matete’s husband died after a gas cylinder accident at their apartment in Athi River.
The Pastor confirmed the death of her husband on Sunday, April 12 in a Facebook post where she also requested prayers.
“My Husband Beloved John Apewajoye has gone to be with the Lord ..I humbly ask for your prayers during this difficult time,” she said.
According to a friend of the couple, the two had bought some cooking gas but the cooker had refused to light due to excess gas in the cylinder.
It is said that Apewajoye took the cylinder to the balcony where he released the excess gas shortly before the accident.
“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,” said the neighbor.
“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.”
