Gospel artiste Ringtone was over the weekend under attack from his Facebook fans, joining the growing list of celebs taking that road. Ringtone posted a picture, with a caption that did not go down well with majority of his fans.
He posted a picture of him with a white lady, with the following statement.
I met this lady in Nairobi city CBD she told me she loves my music and would like to get married to me but I refused and told her if she wants to be my wife she has to sell all her wealth and give to the poor then come to be my wife.
His wording attracted a lot of bitter reaction, with the post generating more than 500 comments, from a Facebook page with less than 7000 likes. Unfortunately, most of them were negative, with a good number rated R. At the time of this writing, the singer had not deleted the post, and it seems he’ll not because hours later, he was telling his fans to unlike his page instead of abusing him. This was his plead.
I WANT US TO PUT TO AN END THIS ABUSES,IF YOU MAY HAVE LIKED THIS PAGE BY MISTAKE KINDLY HUMBLY UNLIKE IT AND GO IN PEACE.I PROMISE YOU THAT IF I NEVER DIED ON THE STREET SUCCESS IS MY PORTION IN JESUS NAME.I RELEASE YOU ALL HATERS NOW DONT SAY ANYTHING AM HUMAN AND I NEED LOVE.
And below are some of the comments the post received, including one where Ringtone himself apologized.
