Ringtone ‘quits’ music
Elsewhere, gospel artiste Alex Apoko alias Ringtone now said he quit gospel music because of women.
Speaking to a local publication, Ringtone intimated that his decision to quit the industry was highly influenced by women who 'threw themselves at him' instead of focusing on his efforts to spread the word of God.
"I quit gospel music because instead of women following the Christ that I preach they end up loving me. That's why I am taking a short break so that these women would focus on Jesus and leave me alone," he stated.
Ringtone alluded that his decision was well-received by his colleagues in the gospel industry since they always saw him as a threat.
"Most of them are very happy because they always viewed me as a threat. You know most of them thought I was the reason they weren't succeeding," he stated.
