Ringtone denies being broke, rubbishes eviction rumors
Gospel music artiste Alex ‘Ringtone’ Apoko has denied that he is broke. The flamboyant artiste who rose from rags to riches has also said that reports in a section of the media and blogs reporting that he has been evicted from his house are untrue. It is alleged that the artiste is broke and that he was served with an eviction notice for failing to pay rent amounting to sh. 400,000 at a rented home in Karen. ‘I don’t live in Karen, I live in Runda and I can afford sh. 400,000. These are malicious allegations that have been planted by some three individuals in the gospel music industry who I shall name soon,’ said Ringtone in an exclusive interview with X-Access. The ‘tenda wema’ singer said that rival artistes were fighting him because he is a success but he would stay true to himself and would not participate in the ‘catfight’.
Ali Kiba makes peace with Wizkid
Tanzanian artiste Ali Kiba has asked fans to stop trolling Nigerian artiste Wizkid. ‘I am not happy with what has been going on, on social media. I have a great appreciation for wizkid as a fellow artist and as a fan . I am very disappointed and saddened by the insults and attacks directed at him, and I want to be very clear that I condemn this behavior and I believe none of my true fans are part of this irrational silliness and stupidity as they know I have always had love for Wizkid,’ said Kiba. The beef began in Kenya during the Chris Brown concert and escalated at the MTV EMA awards where Wizkid was crowned Best African act and later stripped in favour of Kiba.
