Ringtone Apoko has been a gospel music star for several years. But to be honest, he was more better when he was younger. He released hit after hit; until he got fame and money. All he does nowadays is chase clout and create several controversies. For the record, his songs aren’t as good enough as they used to. Numbers don’t lie.
The gospel artist has a couple of times threatened to leave gospel music and start doing secular music.
“Sometimes one routinely does something until it gets to a point he questions if he is doing the right thing. I questioned myself whether my music is touching people. I wasn’t sure if I am in the right field, and that’s why I am quitting music.
In the grand scheme of things, Apoko has not quit gospel. But his acts go contrary to gospel music. Especially his mere beefs with secular artists.
Recently, while confronting Eric Omondi Ringtone made a revelation that he used to sleep with several women before his transition to ‘Godly ways’. He shared with Milele FM’s Ankali Ray.
”Eric Omondi anasumbuliwa na mapepo… Kabla niokoke niliwapiga wanawake wengi sana. Karibu thelathini kwa siku kabla niokoke”
In the recent past, the singer was under sharp criticism for being involved in one controversy after another, with the latest (October, 2015) being allegations that he impregnated and dumped a 22-year-old girl.
His revelation that he was a philanderer makes us believe that the allegations might have been true.
