Gospel singer Kasolo begs for forgiveness after threatening daughter in viral video
Kindly forgive me this will never happen again - Stephen Kasolo
According to the singer, he did not mean any harm to his daughter. He also took full responsibility for his actions, begging Kenyans for forgiveness.
“Praise God my fans? I want to take this opportunity to apologise to my baby Shine Kasolo and all our fans for the video which is going viral. I never meant any harm to my daughter and I never will, nevertheless it has brought a lot of tension on social media. Kindly forgive me this will never happen again, I'm sorry even before God,” reads Kasolo's apology.
On Monday, a video surfaced online showing Kasolo threatening his daughter Shine Kasolo for allegedly breaking his expensive water bottle.
The video caused an uproar among netizens, with a section calling for the arrest of the gospel singer over what they termed as traumatizing his young daughter.
Content creator Milly Chebby said: “That video of Kasolo traumatizing his daughter made me feel sick. Don’t harm your kids for social media validation.”
Media personality Carolina Carlz joined the conversation castigating Kasolo’s actions while calling for his arrest.
“He should be behind bars! What the actual fck! This is not normal and we shouldn't normalize and laugh about it. Imagine if you were that child? If someone threatens to kill you, do you go and report to a police station? Yes. This baby can't! But you can do it for her. He's not fit to be a parent! Are we going to wait till he actually kills the baby to talk? We should make noise till he's arrested and charged,” she said.
