Gospel musician Ringtone Apoko is not a stranger to controversy. Apoko is known to speak his mind of without fear and spark debate on social media.
That being said, just after Ringtone expressed his opinion on the Willy Paul and producer iLogos’ beef, the scenario is not any different this time after claiming that the new hit featuring Otile Brown and Tanzania’s Juma Jux ought to be banned and fans are not having it with him.
The love song ‘Regina’ just a few days after it’s release has impressed fans who have praised Otile and Jux’s songwriting skills and superb vocals.
Ringtone, however, could not have any of it and expressed his disappointment at the lyrics of song terming it as blasphemous and misuse of the name of Christ.

Kenyans, however, took to his Instagram page to debate on his claims with some describing him as a clout chaser in order to remain relevant in the industry.
“Unapenda kiki na hata huna dem..” Wrote one of his fans in the comment section in response to his post on the song.

Jux in the song describes a beautiful girl by the name Regina which is the title of the song, by using his poetic skills to describe his love for Regina “…ukaniokoa Messiah” goes the part which has angered Ringtone.
Otile and Jux on the other hand have remained silent on the issue and go about the business promoting their new hit song which has garnered over 300k views so far.
