Gospel artist Peterson Ngetha is famously known as Pitson almost destroyed his marriage for sponsoring mistresses and their lifestyle. Pitson said in an interview on ‘Oh Men’ that there was a lot of money after releasing his ‘Lingala ya Yesu’ which was his first song.
“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 stated.
“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.”
Pitson was brought as a Pastor’s child. He never kissed or flirted with any girl back in college. He stated that after he got married he was still young and had few responsibilities. He added that since he had money he became a sponsor and began paying rent for different women.
“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.”
“They would pay me with sex. Purity and faithfulness were thrown out of the window. My wife also found out about it,” he stated
Pitson said that his wife found out after she saw messages and the budget didn’t add up. He also added that most of his mistresses were church women.
“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.”
“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 stated, adding that they almost officially divorced.
“But we later agreed to mend things and she never left again.”
Pitson states that his wife did not expose him despite him being in the gospel industry but busy chasing other women. He regretted not using all that money on his wife.
“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.”
