"Ghetto Radio cancelled an interview with Lawrence Wagura Njuguna, alias DJ Fatxo, that was scheduled on Friday, August 18, at 7-8 AM. This was due to an online uproar from our fans, who felt it was in bad taste. As an organisation, we value our customers and our listeners, you come first," the station's official statement read.
The incident comes one week after the artist appeared on Citizen radio's 'Mambo Mseto' show, hosted by Willy M Tuva.
Dj Fatxo's past controversy & clearance
In the past, DJ Fatxo faced a cloud of suspicion linked to the death of interior designer Jeff Mwathi, who passed away in his Kasarani apartment under mysterious circumstances.
However, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) cleared him of any wrongdoing due to a lack of substantial evidence.
According to the singer’s lawyer Duncan Okatch, the DJ was cleared after investigations failed to link him with the 23-year-old designer’s death
The clearance provided a sense of relief for the musician, allowing him to focus on his musical journey and personal growth.
The family of the deceased however, disowned the results of the probe, alleging that the DJ may have colluded with investigators to beat justice.
