Most people are well aware that Gospel artist Ringtone Apoko is a troll, a job that he takes seriously and does with a zeal that Ezekiel Mutua, the Kenya Film Classification Board(KFCB) CEO would be most proud of.
In the past month, Ringtone has been a stalwart in the defense of morality in the Kenyan media space attacking comedian Eric Omondi for his show, Wife Material, even offering Ksh 100K to whoever burned down Eric’s house where the show was being conducted.
But now that Eric has been chastened by the pure and morally upright KFCB board, Ringtone has had to find a new target to set his sights on.
Interesting thing is that the singer who can best be described as a barking dog has no new ideas when it comes to choosing targets on that front.
So he went back to his comfort zone of attacking former gospel singers like Bahati and Willy Paul, musicians who have been prime meat for his indignation.
This time Mr. Apoko has decided to take his dissing to a whole other level accusing the two of being gay! This comes after a photoshopped picture of Bahati and Willy Paul emerged, which Ringtone posted on his Instagram with his incendiary claim.
Bahati and willy had been engaged in a playful photoshop back and forth where each had interchanged the other’s face on different photos.
Mr. Apoko used this fight as an opportunity to muddy his hands and get some clout writing that the gay behavior was not accepted in the gospel industry. Forgive his poor English, but this is what he wrote,
”MONEY HAS BEEN POURED TO PROMOTION GAYS 🙆♂️🙆♂️🙆♂️🙆♂️BAHATI AND WILLYPAUL WHO WHITHIN YOU IS THE HUSBAND AND WHO IS THE WIFE?????
SO KUMBE ALL ALONG YOUR BEEF WAS BOYFRIEND GIRLFRIEND LOVE HATE. WE DONT TOROLATE SUCH GAY BEHAVIOR IN GOSPEL THANKS FOR LEFTING ALREADY 👏👏👏👏👏👏”
The interesting this is that Bahati and Willy Paul don’t like each other but one thing that they have for each other is mutual respect-Something I think Ringtone craves from the public and fellow musicians, as witnessed in his constant machinations and cries for attention.
This diss will do nothing to Willy or Bahati. As I said earlier, the musician is a hollering dog. Hollering dogs never bite.
