Gospel musician Alex Apoko alias Ringtone has been arrested after popular socialite Briget Achieng accused him of sexually assaulting her.
Achieng took to her Instagram page in a live video where she claimed that seven years ago the gospel artist took advantage of her.
She further alleged that ringtone threatened her by telling her he had the money and there was nothing she could have done.
“Ringtone took advantage of me and he is still there singing gospel to you guys, he told me there was nothing i would do. I’m strong now i can speak about it. i was in the ghetto my mum was just a tailor but now i can sue him now that i have a few millions,” Bridget ranted.
She further revealed that she had never spoken about it to any one before she went online with the news.
Bridget further claimed that she had come out with the news to try and encourage the young girls growing up in the ghettos to speak up about cases of sexual violence.
“I’m strong now i can speak about it, what about these young girls growing up in the ghetto, Huruma and elsewhere,” she went on.
The matter has elicited mixed reactions online as some of netizens took the musicians defense claiming the socialite was clout chasing.
“One of the worst things could happen to a woman’s life is sexual assault But it’s also worse if you lie about the situation just to get public attention,” Wamuyu commented on twitter.
Others called for justice to be served and if the musician was found guilty of the accusations to face the full force of the law.
“The truth needs to come out, is Ringtone Apoko a rapist or is Bridgit Achieng a social media attention craving liar,” another user commented.
In his response ringtone stated denied the claims stating he was clean and alleged a conspiracy to bring him.
” Kijana wa yesu ni msafi, kijana wa yesu ako na class. ingekua ni kwa sababu yenu nyinyi abmao mnaniongea ujinga ningekua nilikufa nikaoza kitambo lakini mungu kawashinda akili ( As a son of God I am clean and I have class, if it was up to you I would have died along time ago but God has out smarted you)” ringtone stated in a vile response.
