Sarafina DeMathew, the first wife of the late Benga music sensation John DeMathew, won a difficult inheritance dispute, according to Carolyne DeMathew, John’s second wife.
Sarafina served as the late John DeMathew’s first wife, while Caroline served as his second.
The two wives’ harmony has endured since the musician’s passing in a car accident four years ago.A family dispute over the division of the late singer’s riches broke out years later.
Caroline claims that tensions between the two wives grew in 2021 over how to divide DeMathew’s income.
The money from his employment was first split between them, but after Caroline started her own YouTube channel, things changed.
Caroline’s access to their late husband’s computer was allegedly prevented by Sarafina.
Caroline, having attempted to resolve the matter through arbitrators and discussions with Sarafina, eventually turned to the high court, seeking reinstatement as a beneficiary of the inheritance.
Her efforts at reconciliation proved futile, driving her to resort to legal intervention. The core issue before the High Court now hinges on whether Caroline’s exclusion from inheriting DeMathew’s properties is legally justified.
During the recent fourth anniversary of DeMathew’s death, Carolyne shared fond memories of the late musician whom he described as soft-spoken.
In response to a fan’s query on Facebook about the ongoing court case, Carolyne said: “About the court, yes she (Sarafina) won and there’s always a winner and a loser.”
During De’Mathew’s third anniversary, Carolynne said that only one of her late husband’s friends has been checking up on her after everyone abandoned her.
Carolyne also announced to their fans that she was thrown out of the home she shared with her late husband. She wished the deceased would come back and see how his friends turned their back on her.
“I swear Njogu was your friend. He has been checking up on me and your little Mathew, Simba,” Carolyne wrote.
“I wish you knew how your family treated me as well after your demise. They even threw me out of our house, where I gave birth to your son.”
DeMathew’s first wife has been sending cryptic messages on social media after Carolyne spoke.
A few days ago, Sarafina said people will build you thinking they are breaking you.
“To my genuine friends, fans and DeMathew’s friends and fans, I am doing fine and better,” she wrote.
