15. Ringtone – Natafuta Bibi
Controversial Kenyan gospel artiste Ringtone Apoko made headlines with his legendary wife search tactics. Armed with a placard and his legs, the artist took to Kenyan streets to seek the public’s first hand help. The stunt that landed him in trouble with the law turned out to be a publicity stunt for his newly released song.
He features bongo star Harmonize’s ex Jackline Wolpa in the video, a move that angered many since he is regarded as the moral cop of the Kenyan gospel musicians. This is because of how often he calls out fellow Gospel artists like Willy Paul and Bahati, telling them to reform on one thing or the other.
