Ruth Matete Refutes Claims That She’s Broke
Tusker Project Fame 5 winner, Ruth Matete, has denied claims that she is broke, terming those spreading the rumours as ‘jealous’.
There have been claims since late last year the singer had misused her winnings, something she has denied on several occasions.
Speaking to Star newspaper, Ruth said, “Looking at me, do I look broke? Ruth Matete can and will never be broke. God’s grace and favour are all over me. Let those who like to talk such malicious stories continue doing so. I’m too blessed to be cursed.”
The singer was last year forced to explain what she did with her Sh5 million, after reports that she had moved back to her dad’s house after going broke.
She said she furnished her house at a cost not exceeding Sh250,000, bought a Toyota Allion for Sh 980,000, gave Sh 500,000 tithe, an iPhone 4s for Sh 70,000 and a bash for her friends that set her back Sh 90,000.
On her music, Ruth says her first album will be out in 2 weeks. It will feature a total of 10 tracks with the songwriting done by some big names, among them Sauti Sol, R Kay, and Gideon Kimanzi.
“Eight songs will be gospel, one love song and the other inspirational. It’s all about having good music to my beloved good fans. All in the honour of God’s name. I will release an audio version but I promise to do the video work as soon as possible,” she said.
