Former Tusker Project Fame winner Ruth Matete recently penned a heartwarming message to her dad Abel Amunga, thanking him for being both a father and a mother to her.

Matete, who tied the knot with the love of her life Pastor Beloved John, revealed that she lost her mother when she was eight years old but her dad guided her and raised her well.

“I don't have memories of my biological mother. I know her name is Jennifer. They were high school sweethearts who had me when they were way too young.

“Dad says I have her height. She passed away when I was 8 years old. And since then, my dad is who I have known as a father, mother, teacher,coach, friend.

“A girl who has been raised by a single father is a different kind of girl,” she wrote.

Matete added that she is confident because her dad was brutally honest with her and she has learnt to get up quickly when faced by setbacks because her dad always told her to ‘get up and try again’ whenever she fell.

“Daddy, you're my hero. I have waited for this moment for so long and it came to pass. Thank you for being the father you are. I am blessed to call you daddy,” she said.

In a separate post, she showered her husband with praise saying she is a better person since she met him.

“I am a better version of me since I met you. You have taught me how to relate with people and above all, my relationship with God has grown deeper since I met you.

“By the special grace of God, I shall endeavor to honor and submit to you as unto the Lord. I love you Bee.”
