Ronnie Coaches was not a womanizer - Bright

After the death of Ronnie, half of the duo Buk Bak, many ladies emerged from nowhere claiming to be the wives of the deceased. These happenings after the death of the musician did not augur well since it was thought of bringing shame to the late.

Bright who is the only surviving member of the hiplife group in a report by peacefmonline.com says his brother Ronnie was not a womanizer because he respected himself.

The only surviving member of Hiplife group Buk Bak, Prince Bright (Bling Sparkles) has started that his deceased brother and group member Ronnie Coaches was not a womanizer like it is has been perceived after his untimely dead.

“As far as Ronnie’s relationship is concern because he doesn’t like talking too much I may not know about but unfortunately my brother is not here to defend himself so I plead with everybody to let Ronnie rest peacefully”, Bright stated on Peace FM’s “Entertainment Review” recently.

Asked if Ronnie was a womanizer Bright said “Ronnie respected himself very much I respect his lifestyle, he doesn’t talk too much, he takes his actions like a man Ronnie was not a womanizer”.

He added that often musician and famous men are perceived to be womanizers but that is not true because he (Bright) has been victim of false relationship stories in the media. “But I look to God because if I am in my room alone and I cry, it is my own cry. There are a lot of things I hear about Ronnie and I feel so sad but it is not everything I can respond to so I decide to keep quiet over it”, Bright spoke with uncontrollable tears.

Bright added that it is very painful to hear certain things about Ronnie and musicians in general but they are mostly not true. He made a passionate appeal to Ghanaians to come in their numbers to support the burial of his best friend music partner, Ronnie Coaches.

Bright urged all in the industry and the general public and sympathizers to come support the funeral service for Ronnie so we place him in the hands of the Almighty God.”
