Gospel artiste Rufftone has been accused of duping an upcoming artiste and leaving him without pay.
This is after he organised a concert at Bukhungu stadium in Kakamega county, called the artiste to perform after reaching some agreements only for him to be shortchanged later.
Narrating the ordeal via his facebook account, the young gospel artiste identified as Mc Angel Kenya expressed displeasure in the occurrence of events and called upon Kenyans to help him get justice.
“My name is Mc Angel. A Kenyan based gospel artist famous for Natamani song. 2019 was tough year for everybody and I was grateful when Rufftone of Mungu baba song called me to perform in his event in Kakamega.
“Ladies and gentlemen, I grew up in a children’s home and the streets. I know nobody besides God who has watched over me and reached me to this point through music.
“I know no influential humans besides the same God who directs my path. I went to Kakamega and worked for five days. Did activations and sang my lungs out,” reads part of his post.
“However, upon winding up, Mr Rufftone refused to pay up upon requesting for my dues.
“Instead, he came up with stories that the ladies under my watch had misappropriated airtime that was meant for activation. This man even refused to buy me food for the days I was there but as a man I moved on,” added the artiste.
Additionally, the upcoming artiste claimed that Rufftone, being a big name in the industry threatened him saying that there was nothing he could do as he was the President’s ally.
Rufftone and his brother Owen Mwati, famously known as Daddy Owen have been in the music industry for decades, with majority of upcoming artistes looking up to them.
Rufftone was however not available for a comment on the same by the time this story was published.Do you have any story you would like to share? Email us at email@example.com and we will publish it. You can also contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
