Sh60 million house: At home with Ringtone

Published

on

Ringtone, this gospel star that has brought you hits like Muziki ni Dawa, Gospel Inabamba, Maisha and last year’s massive hit Tenda Wema has a larger-than-life image.

Aside from his state-of- the-art rides, he boasts a maisonette in the leafy suburbs of Runda. However, this time round Pulse sneaks into his other home in Karen, a ten-bedroom crib, where we do the quick fire.

Pulse: This property is worth more than Sh60 million which could really be a huge sum for an artiste. Just how did you acquire it?

Ringtone: That is a good question. The owner had actually abandoned this property for years and so by the time I was getting the house, the prize had depreciated. I had to do a lot to bring it to its current state.

P: How big is the land it stands on?

R: This is a half an acre.

P: You are still young and single: How on earth do you use ten bedrooms?

R: (Laughs): It is rather obvious that I cannot sleep in ten different bedrooms. As you might be aware, I support a number of children homes and so to raise money for that, when I get foreign guests, I allow them to stay over for bed and breakfast and then the proceeds I get from that I put into charity.

P: What stands out most…for you?

R: I should say everything stands-out. Every bedroom is different from the other in terms of design and the furniture we have in there.

I have a Jacuzzi in my master bedroom as well as a reading area, which I have also converted into prayer room. The bathtubs are also modern.

P: We notice that the living room as well as the dining area is colourful. What informed that design aspect?

R: I have a professional designer who fits everything. Basically, like I have said, you will get a different mood in every room.

P: Why won’t you use the house for showbiz; like put up a studio or a music school?

P: This is a home and I live in a residential area where we don’t allow such. The only time I have many visitors coming in is when I am throwing a party for the children I support.

P: Is this your dream home?

R: I thank God for this property and I continue to believe him for better. He says in his word; “Ask and you shall be given…seek and you shall find…”

BY KEVIN KOECH

Celebrated singer, David Mathenge alias Nameless has opened up on marriage struggles he has been experiencing with his wife Wahu Kagwe.

The couple has always kept their life away from the public such that no one would expect them to have disagreements but that is not the case.

Speaking to comedian MC Jessy, the Megarider hitmaker opened up about his marriage saying that they also have fought just like any other couple.

According to him, marriage is not a bed of roses and that a couple of times he has had to enjoy his nights on the couch leaving their bedroom for his wife.

“You know MC Jessy, let us tell people the truth. There are times I have slept on the couch and it really helps the marriage. At times you need to take time out,” said the singer.

The father of two decided to give young men who will be soon getting into marriage some advice.

Nameless hilariously said that they should be very keen while buying their furniture and ensure that they buy comfortable sofas for they probably will spend the night there when things get heated in the bedroom.

“One thing I would like to tell men, they should be very keen while buying furniture for their house. Ensure that you buy sofas that you can use as a bad. When things get tough in the bedroom, you will need that seat not once or twice,” he added.

Published

on

Health CS Mutahi Kagwe on Thursday said he has never heard of Robert Burale after he was asked a question about the ailing pastor during Thursday’s Covid-19 briefing in Mombasa.

Referring to him as Robert Murathe, the CS said that he does not know who Burale is, adding that he cannot respond to rumours.

“I don’t know anything about Robert Murathe, I don’t know what he’s doing, he’s probably sick. I have never heard of this guy. You are saying he is supposed to have been paid, by who? When it comes to issues like rumours, if I were to respond to every rumour I would be very busy,” he said.

He wondered who would have paid him and why.

“I don’t know who would have paid him or why he would be pretending. The guy might probably be sick but you have decided that he is not. Let me leave that one out.”

On Monday, the renowned motivational speaker and pastor announced that he had tested positive for coronavirus.

Pastor Burale made the revelation via Facebook, saying that he had to wait for President Uhuru Kenyatta to give his speech before he could share the bad news.

“Last week Wednesday I (after recording an FB program that airs of Fridays) was struggling to breathe and rushed to Nairobi Hospital where I was tested for Covid-19 and I tested positive,” he said.

How have things changed from the time you were on TPF to now?

I have become a mentor of girls and a teacher. I want to prepare children who will be so grounded when going for competitions like Tusker Project Fame.

Do you keep in touch with your fellow contestants from Tusker Project Fame?

Not really. I watch Alvan Gatitu like everyone else and was in church with Ruth Matete.

You have a masters or is it a PHD now? What were you studying?

Yes Masters and now pursuing and ECDE diploma…I want to focus a lot in raising the next generation. I am also the head of Music at Gems Cambridge-Regis school

How did you meet up with Josh Manio to do the collabo? What is the backstory?

I had interacted with Amos and Josh at a Lifepool church and I remember we said it would be great to sing together. I guess it was fate because we did not plan it, it just happened. He is such a nice person.

Anything else you would like to add?

Thanksgiving is a weapon of warfare and so let us all learn to give thanks at all times. God never fails. If he has continued to lift me, I will not look back but serve him even more.
