Gospel singer Peterson Ngetha, alias Pitson, nearly lost his marriage for keeping women and supporting their lifestyle.
In an interview with Robert Burale on ‘oh Men’, Pitson said after he realeased his first hit song, ‘Lingala ya Yesu’, there was large chunk of money’s.
He grew up as a pastor’s kid.
“I was in this group where the mantra was ‘Purity is Power’. While we’re together, we had an unwritten agreement not to have sex with our girlfriends,” he said.
In school, Pitson never teased or even kissed a lady.
“I met my wife Carol in the second year. We started dating and we got married. Later, I got a job at a bank. That is when I released the ‘Lingala ya Yesu.’ There was so much money during that time.”
He says he was youthful with a wife however he had few responsibilities.
“I was making a lot of cash and I was just paying Sh22,000 as rent in Kinoo. Money is like a servant, so if you don’t give it work, it will introduce mischief.”
He said since he had cash, he paid rent for various ladies and became their ‘sponsor’.
“They would pay me with sex. Purity and faithfulness were thrown out of the window. My wife also found out about it,” he said, adding that she found out through messages that the budget did not add up.
“She left and the embarrassing moment is my parents going to her house and promising that their son would behave. I was being asked questions and I had to accept.
Pitson said the the ladies he kept as an afterthought were church ladies.
“My wife came back home but I became wiser in hiding my escapades. She found out again and left again and my parents had to go back and see her parents,” he said, adding that they had agreed to officially divorce.
“But we later agreed to mend things and she never left again.”
Pitson says his wife was charitable enough not to expose him, given he was dynamic in the gospel scene while caught up around different ladies.
“Only my brother knew what I was up to. God called me but I kept ignoring him. He would tell me that I was being ‘caught’ because he (God) loved me. I went to Arboretum and that is where I accepted God.”
He laments that he didn’t use the cash on his wife.
