Ringtone's Controversy

When you give God an ultimatum

In 2021, Ringtone Alex Apoko gave God a 40-day ultimatum to give him a BMW i8 failure to which he threatened to quit the Gospel industry. He desired to own the car after one Kevin Mulei (who at the time was reported to be the only person in the country with a BMW i8) refused to give him the vehicle for a video shoot. His stance did not go down well with netizens as some people opined that he was taking God for granted. At the end of his fast, he did not get a BMW i8 but it remains to be seen whether he is still a Gospel artist.

Hawking the heart

Alex Ringtone Apoko cannot keep quiet about how rich he is. Every financial step he makes, he ensures the world finds out about it. However, when it comes to matters of the heart, the gospel musician has not been as lucky. So badly is Ringtone’s ache for a wife that he holds a placard in the middle of the road with the qualities he desires in a woman in the hope that she will finally find, seemingly, the only thing missing from his life. 

In 2019, Ringtone was arrested when he took his search to the Cooperate University in Karen on grounds that he did not have a permit to do the advertisement.

Rearing cows in Karen

They say when you go to Rome, you do as the Romans do but not for Gospel musician Ringtone Apoko. Good for him that he settled in Karen but residents of the posh neighbourhood were not pleased when he started to rear cows in the area. In fact, the musician claims that the Karen Residents Association penned a letter and asked him to not rear his 40 cows in the area. In a television interview, Ringtone accused the association of double standards as they allow other residents to domesticate other types of animals.

Chasing Zari

What’s this about? Many women would trip over to be in the arms of a man who will gift them something like a Range Rover but not for one Zari Hassan. Ringtone went out of his own way and allegedly bought her the ride in a bid to try and convince her to be his wife. When asked about it, Zari simply said, “I got my own.” Ouch! Sorry Ringtone. It turned out that he hired the car and not bought it plus deliberately pulled the stunt as he was aware that she would decline it. Further, Zari denied knowing Ringtone.

His pursuit started after Zari and Diamond broke up. He bought 40 cows as bride price but eventually ended up domesticating them in his Karen home.  

Willy Paul's obsession

Ringtone goes on and on about Willy Paul. It seems as though he monitors his life in close quarters because he’s always on his business. He calls him out on everything he does. In 2020, he even said he’d sue Willy Paul for his song ‘Hallelujah’ as he was offended by its content. Ringtone is on record stating how big of a sinner Willy Paul is but netizens were not having it. Some told him to mind his own business while others stated that Ringtone has deep-seated issues he needs to solve.

Album Launch Drama

Ringtone had another faceoff with DJ Mo after he kicked him out of his wife's album launch in February. According to the couple, Ringtone stormed the stage at the wrong time and refused to follow the event protocols. Further, DJ Mo accused Ringtone of disrespecting his wife and was forced to take action. The couple said he was allowed to be in the event but his behaviour became untenable to allow him to stay. 

Ringtone's Cars 

Ringtone Apoko owns six cars. A Range Rover Sport SVR 2019, Toyota Land Cruiser VX, Range Rover Evoque, Mercedez C- Class and a Range Rover Vogue. 

Ringtone's House

Ringtone lives in the leafy suburbs of Nairobi. One of Ringtone’s houses is in Runda while the other is in Karen. He revealed that his Karen home cost him about Ksh 60 million.

Ringtone's Net Worth
