2020 - Ringtone disses Diana's influence on Bahati
Ringtone comes out to tell off Bahati for his choice to marry the worldly Diana Marua. He says that she took away his focus from God and his ministry.

“I kept on saying that Bahati can’t sing. I warned him when he started wearing dresses and dying his hair. God cannot have him represent Him in that image. Besides, I think Bahati made a mistake when he married Diana, a woman who does not care even posting a single Bible scripture. All she does is teach Bahati how to kiss and caress. That is all she makes him post online. She is only interested in showing people that she is a slay. At least she should have been God’s slay…If she loved God, this relationship would work but I don’t think it is working for them.”
