Mugithi sensation Lawrence Njuguna Wagura, better known as DJ Fatxo, has broken his silence regarding the recent controversy surrounding the cancellation of his interview on Ghetto Radio.

In a statement shared across his social media platforms, Fatxo addressed Ghetto Radio's claims that the interview was axed due to fan backlash.

The artist mentioned that the initial feedback from fans had been overwhelmingly positive.

"Contrary to the assertions therein, the interview was not cancelled due to any online uproar from fans.

"As a matter of fact, the station shared media promoting the interview several times on their social media platforms, including in the hour preceding the scheduled time, and the feedback was very positive," Fatxo clarified.

The 'Mwopiano' hitmaker revealed that his delay was attributed to unavoidable traffic delays, leading to his tardiness for the interview.

In response, he expressed his disappointment with Ghetto Radio's explanation, deeming it hastily conceived. He criticised the letter's insinuations as unwarranted, ill-conceived, and unfortunate.

"The reality is that the cancellation was a result of unavoidable traffic delays that caused Dj Fatxo to be late for the scheduled interview.

"We, therefore, find the insinuation of that letter unwarranted and ill-thought. It is distasteful, misleading, and plainly just unfortunate," he wrote.

DJ Fatxo also highlighted his history of successful media interviews with other outlets, underscoring the importance of disseminating accurate and factual information by media entities.
