Gospel artist Ringtone Apoko again became the subject of ridicule over his poor mastery of the English language.
Ringtone was commenting on rapper Bamboo’s revelation that his wife was a witch who died and resurrected.
“WAJINGA WALIISHA KENYA WE ARE LOOK FOR BETTER LIERS KANYARI WAS CLEVER. BAMBOOS YOU ARE STUPID YOU ARE MAKE JESUS LOOK BAD” wrote the ‘tenda wema nenda zako’ singer on his Instagram.
Ringtone also warned Bamboo against speaking about the gospel music ministry as he was not a gospel artist.
His comment however did not go well with some Kenyans who also took the opportunity to point out Ringtone’s weak English.
Below are some of the netizens comments:
Nancy_wanjiru_mwangi wrote “Yani unapiga wakristo wenzako mawe kwani wachawi hawafai kuokoka ”
Ianmark254 wrote “English yako ni mafi sana…afadhali tu unyamaze,”
Stev_o3 said “Sjaiona mtu mzima ako na utoto hivi. And you say you’re a follower of Christ.”
Faithwaeni said “R.i.p English”
_mombasa.icon._”Kizungu sio lugha chenu ,”
Noelabrenda “Apoko wewe hicho kizungu.”
However, this is not the first time netizens show troll the controversial gospel artist about his English, some even think he purposefully uses broken English for clout, as they say ‘even negative publicity is still publicity’.
Some of his social media posts with bad English include:
He captioned a picture “HOW AM ENTER HEAVEN WHEN JESUS IS CALL MY NAME THEN AS AM ENTER THE DOOR THEN AM HEAR PEOPLE SHOUT ‘CHAIRMAN CHAIRMAN’
“SOMETIMES I MYSELF AM WONDERFUL WHY GOD LOVES ♂️♂️♂️”
“AM LEAVING MY LIFE TO FULLEST THANKS YOU GOD”
“I IS SHY IMAGINE ”
