DK Kwenye Beat, Hopekid apologise but their fans give them a tongue-lashing

By Standard Reporter | February 1st 2019

“When they kept on questioning him (Jesus), he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her…” (John 8:7)

DK Kwenye Beat and Hopekid are well known in the gospel music industry but this week they were trending for the wrong reasons.

A 20-year-old girl from Nakuru had accused the pair of taking advantage of her leading up to a threesome.

The girl further alleged that she had been infected with a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) and as expected, Kenyans gave their two cents on the matter.

DK did not deny or ‘plead guilty’ to the allegations, instead, he took the opportunity to repent and apologise to all those he had let down.

“Following the story going around, I would like first and foremost to repent to God Almighty for living a life of sin…I am not a perfect man. I am a fallen man but one that God is working on every day.

“I am a changed man from what I was back then. I am working my salvation with fear and trembling. Sadly this story has come out when I am on my way to complete reformation,” read his apology in part.

Hopekid, on the other hand, said: “I write this with a very heavy heart. I have done wrong before God and man. I am truly sorry. I am not a righteous man. I am a young man who has made mistake (which I am sorry for). I sincerely apologize to all who have been hurt as a result of my action…

“To all my fans, supporters, family and friends: I apologize for letting you down. I have fallen but God will raise me up. God will work this around for his glory!”

However, their apologies were not received kindly as they got a bashing from their fans who accused them of preaching water but drinking wine.

“First of all u should apologize to that lady publicly... Cater for her medical bills... We will only forgive u after that ... So shameful of u.. This is not the past coz it’s fresh...” wrote Adams Davidson.

“Am I the only one who can see through this apology bs? He didn't even apologize to the one who got hurt the most... This was just 'something he had to do because he's famous' Anyway I'm not here to judge but this is straight up bs,” stated Shirleen Mailu.

“Why haven't you apologized to the girl...she is the one who suffered the most... She's suicidal but all you care about is the fame...so you apologize to your fans for what you did and you didn't even have time to type a sentence or say a word of apology to her... After all you put her through...” added Egosi Rhema.

“Hii gospel utapata Willy Paul ndio msafi. Everyone knows Willy Paul is a bad boy and he doesn’t hide in church tapping young girls. Disappointed in hopekid and DK kwenye beat,” wrote Shadrack Kenyagah.

“You are forgiven bro but you have to be ready for the consequences. It is not easy being a public figure and especially a gospel artist. The devil wants to bring you down by all means but with God on our side we shall overcome. Two wrongs never make a right. Let's pray for them. It's not easy. Let's also pray for the lady,” stated Stephens Kyengo.

“The problem is u are more concern about protecting your image than u are repenting and confronting the mess u have done...we can see right through that sorry,” added Thomas Ngulamu.
