IT'S amazing how God works. On Friday, gospel music singer Peter Kaberere was laid to rest at the Lang'ata cemetery, amid sorrow and tears. But a few hours late, the sadness turned joy as Kaberere's wife, Njeri Kahura (Njesh), gave birth to their second child – a baby girl named Njoki.

The post on the Facebook page 'In Loving Memory of Peter "Kabz" Kaberere' read: “A beautiful baby girl was born to Njesh wa Qabbz last evening. Thank you for the comforting and congratulatory messages. The family has requested we avoid posting or sharing the pictures of the baby - lets respect the privacy of this family. Once again, we appreciate you and thank you for standing with us. Be blessed.” This was followed by congratulatory messages flowing from all directions on the social media.

However, the good news were preceded by a week of mourning, in the wake of the astonishing death of the 32-year-old Kiburi hit-maker. On Thursday, the music fraternity congregated at the Parklands Baptist Church where Kaberere's memorial concert was held. Music artistes from both the secular and gospel circles turned out in large numbers and gave out moving tributes for the fallen artiste.

Kaberere was a former member of the gospel music group Jogg C and is best known for his many hits among them Kiburi, Just A Way (with Mr. Vee), Nisamehe, Mitego, Natamani (with Eunice Njeri) and Mwanake with Benachi.
