Ringtone vs Bahati: Gospel music is dying a slow death
Ringtone has set his targets on Bahati once again and this time he is claiming that Mtoto wa Diana Marua could be in the closet with all his new social media posts about Willy Paul being his woman.
Ringtone is back on his bullshit and he is not taking prisoners. He recently took to his social media account to call out Bahati who had posted a photoshopped picture that had Willy Paul’s head on a woman’s body.
He posted the following scathing message:
MONEY HAS BEEN POURED TO PROMOTION GAYS ????♂️????♂️????♂️????♂️BAHATI AND WILLYPAUL WHO WHITHIN YOU IS THE HUSBAND AND WHO IS THE WIFE????? SO KUMBE ALL ALONG YOUR BEEF WAS BOYFRIEND GIRLFRIEND LOVE HATE. WE DONT TOROLATE SUCH GAY BEHAVIOR IN GOSPEL THANKS FOR LEFTING ALREADY ????????????????????????
And it has to make you wonder what happened to the gospel fraternity. What happened to them putting out music glorifying God instead of attacking each other? On the one hand, we have Ringtone attacking fellow gospel artists and on the other we have Bahati toying with the idea of fully embracing secular women.
And what that has resulted in is a dearth of content from those very quarters. And this is a stark contrast from a few years back when gospel music ran the entertainment scene. Infact, when Bahati first came onto the scene, the secular scene was dead.
Gone are the days when every new artist had to be a gospel artist if they wanted to make it. Now, they need stunts because even the fans aren’t interested in urban contemporary gospel music. Or perhaps they are simply reacting to the lack of content.
Gospel worked alot better when artists weren’t chasing after stunts. It worked alot better when artists sort to collaborate. Back then, the message in the music was paramount and it was always about God above all else.
But as secular music began to rise in popularity, gospel artists refused to stay in their own lanes and keep making great gospel music. Instead, they began focusing and obsessing on what socialites and secular artists were doing. They kept going towards what the weren’t meant to -worldly pleasures. And Bahati and Ringtone only exemplify this fact.
