Contentious blogger Robert Alai arrested in Nairobi after beating a controversial gospel artist and will be arraigned on Monday on raid charges.

The arrests comes after an incident where he was allegedly implicated in a confrontation with gospel singer Alex Apoko, who is famously recognised as Ringtone.

"We have him (Mr Alai) in custody. He's vandalised the musician's car and we will crave extra charges of brutal damage to property," Kilimani OCPD Andrew Muturi told

Apoko said the problem began after the blogger declined to drive on at a junction when the traffic lights turned green.

"I hooted and motioned him to give way and instead, he commenced following my car along Oliotoktok Road," said Ringtone.

"He then blocked my way and began hitting me with a rungu (club) on the head. He has also destroyed my car. I'm heading to a hospital," Apoko added.

Blogger Alai was driving a Subaru Outback while Ringtone was driving a Range Rover.
