Tusker Project Fame 5 winner Ruth Matete, unlike others who walked away with the Ksh 5 million prize after competing in the prestigious competition, regrets participating and emerging the winner in the show.
Speaking in a radio interview with Massawe Japani on Radio Jambo, Matete, a born again christian, shared that she regrets participating in the show because it was sponsored by an alcohol brand.
“It was not a good gesture as a Christian,” she said.
“Around that time, I was so stressed and I had financial difficulties.
Even then, I knew I was wrong, but because in life we have ups and downs, no one should lie to you that after salvation everything is fine. I had moved out of my father’s house, although I was still in school. It was not easy and my dad is a very strict dad, who would only give me a small amount of money, unlike what I expected.”
Matete won KSh5 million from the show in 2012, gave a tenth of that amount to the church as tithe> An act that angered some at that time.
She confessed that a lot changed since participating in the show and she blames her close friends who misled her.
“At that time, one of my friends advised me to try Tusker Project Fame. I hesitated but finally ended up going because of the frustrations of life, without even thinking about my salvation life,” she said.
“After TPF, there were so many gigs for me. Most people did not know I was saved. When I went back to church, there was a lot of drama, but I admitted I was wrong.”
