Singer Ringtone Apoko is in under the kosh at the moment. The reason for that is the accusations that former socialite Bridget Achieng accused him of sexual assault.
Bridget dropped the bombshell allegation this past Monday stating that he had s3xually harassed her a few years ago, but she didn’t have the courage to talk about the ordeal until this week.
Achieng alleged at that the time, Ringtone had invited her to his house in Westlands and took advantage of her, saying nothing could be done to him.
“I travel around the world and I don’t see other countries justifying rape the way our men go out there and they start justifying rape. It’s not funny… Right now someone’s daughter is lying critically ill in the hospital but men are going live to spit nonsense… I’m coming in as somebody who has been in the same situation in my life.”
“I went out to meet this man Ringtone. And I put my life in Ringtone’s arm, thinking this man is going to help in my career as a musician and as a choir girl. He told me, come to my house. And this man took advantage of me. I’ve never talked about it…” said Bridget Achieng.
But as many of you know, Mr. Apoko isn’t a man scared of meeting any accusation or insinuation head-on, in fact he loves starting fights.
In his response, Ringtone called out Bridget and asked her to stop chasing clout using his name. He said that in his time in the industry, a lot of people cancelled him in the music industry on different grounds, but he has remained relevant by the grace of the God he serves.
“…Kijana wa Yesu nimsafi, Kijana wa Yesu ako na class. Kijana wa Yesu niko na standard, sometimes msinilinganishe na vitu sijui zinakaa aje. Mimi ni Kijan wa Yesu, ingekuwa ni kwa sababu yenu nyinyi ambapo mnaniongea ningekuwa nilikufa nikasahaulika. Lakini Mungu amewazidi akili…hamnigusi niko na Baba” said Ringtone in part.
