Ringtone Apoko Scandals
It is quite clear that Ringtone Apoko has more issues than vogue. Ringtone has had his fair share of scandals in this country. A while ago, he relocated to Runda after making his fans to believe that he was broke as some people had publicly stated. This came as a rude shock to all those who had earlier on believed that the singer was broke.
Months after moving into the affluent neighborhood, the controversial singer had issues with the Karen Residents Association for rearing over 40 cows in the posh milieu. This is because according to the association, Karen is a residential community and not a farm. When asked on how he resorted to rearing cows, he stated that after Zari turned down his courtship offer, he decided to keep them and rear them. The cows have since bred and multiplied. They also give him milk which he sells and makes money out of it.
On June 10, 2019, Ringtone was allegedly arrested for prostituting and confusing students at Cooperative University. Over years, the singer has been said to date a questionable number of women.
He at one time stated that Willy Paul was not fit for the Gospel Industry. This came in after Willy Paul was said to not meet the standards for a Gospel artist. It was said that Tanzanian artist Nandy aborted Willy Paul’s child. This made Kenyans to question Ringtone Apoko’s sanity because no sane person would air one’s dirty laundry in the public just like that.
After his love stunts turned out to be unsuccessful, he effortlessly pulled another stunt, claiming that he had opted to be a priest. He went ahead and posted photos dressed up as a priest. Netizens later came to find out that the stunt was used for clout because he was shooting a music video for a song he was set to release.
The craziness does not end there. He went ahead and attacked Stevo Simple Boy, calling him a ‘Mihadarati singer’ and not a gospel singer.
