When the late Benga singer John DeMathew was being buried in 2019, his two wives Sarafina and Caroline stunned Kenyans with their show of unity during the burial. The singer's first wife Sarafina went to the extent of comforting Carolyne, assuring her that all will be well and no one would come between them.

"Carolynne has respected me and we do not want anyone to come between us. Our children live together in harmony and nothing will change after our husband’s death. There are people trying to incite us. Let me tell you, there is no space. We are closer than ever and God is in control,” said Sarafina at the burial attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta, his then Deputy William Ruto among other dignitaries.

However, an elder who was involved in the burial preparations has revealed that the two women were coached on how to behave during the burial. Speaking to the Nairobian, the elder said Sarafina and Carolyne disagreed on almost everything when the singer's burial was being planned.

The elder said they had a rough time to keep them together. The elders coached them on how to behave to avoid embarrassing high-profile guests who had attended the burial.

Sarafina and Carolyne are now embroiled in a vicious battle over the late husband's property and music royalties. Below is a screenshot from the Nairobian publication.
