Gospel rapper Edwin Ruyonga has finally felt the sting of social media after making a social media post in which he equated the controversial prophet Elvis Mbonye to Jesus Christ.
It looks like Ruyonga did not expect the backlash he got when saying that Jesus and Mbonye are the same. However, after fans threatened to delete his music from their devices, he has curved in to pressure and issued an apology to his followers.
“To those who genuinely care for and look up to me, I am genuinely sorry for any damage I may have caused in what I said. I just have a way with words and some of us do get tired of how a good servant of God gets criticized and disrespected with little to no basis. Again, my opinion. Jesus is a narrow path every Christian is on at their own stage, so I ask for the Grace to be forgiven as I continue on mine. If you need more clarity feel free to hit me up personally,” the apologetic Ruyonga posted.
He also explained why he said that Mbonye and Jesus are the same saying, “I believe Prophet Elvis Mbonye, who many people attack for no reason other than he gets a lot more honor and attention than is deemed right by organised religion, is a Jesus loving Christian, and he matters a lot to me in that regard. So Jesus is inside him, like he is in every Christian, same for God and the Holy Spirit, or he wouldn’t be able to do what he does, and he credits Jesus for that manifestation every, single, Tuesday,” Mbonye wrote.
Well, we don’t know if this apology will work for the fans. Are you convinced?
