Ghetto Radio was compelled to cancel a scheduled interview with Mugithi Singer Lawrence Njuguna Wagura, widely recognized as DJ Fatxo.
The cancellation came after a section of the station’s listeners voiced their strong protest against his appearance on the station.
The interview was set to take place during the station’s peak breakfast show hours from 7 AM to 8 AM on Friday, August 18.
However, DJ Fatxo was informed at the last minute that the interview had been called off due to what the station’s PR Department described as an “online uproar” from fans.
The decision was primarily rooted in the sentiment expressed by listeners who found his presence on the show to be distasteful and inappropriate.
The statement issued by Ghetto Radio’s PR Department emphasized the station’s unwavering commitment to its audience.
“This was due to online uproar from our fans, who felt it was in bad taste. As an organization, we value our customers and our listeners; you come first!” the statement read.
The radio station’s management seemed to prioritize the concerns and feelings of their audience, which they deemed vital to maintaining their strong connection with their listeners.
This incident follows closely on the heels of DJ Fatxo’s recent acquittal in the investigation surrounding the tragic death of Jeff Mwathi.
The singer had faced intense scrutiny and legal proceedings after Jeff Mwathi, a 21-year-old interior designer, tragically fell from the 10th floor of DJ Fatxo’s apartment.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) meticulously examined the case and officially cleared DJ Fatxo of any culpability or involvement in the unfortunate incident.
According to reports, the DCI found no evidence linking the singer to the death, effectively putting to rest allegations of his involvement.
Despite the official exoneration by the authorities, a significant portion of the public seems to remain skeptical about DJ Fatxo’s innocence.
The lingering doubts and suspicions surrounding the incident have evidently spilled over into his public appearances and engagements, as highlighted by the Ghetto Radio interview cancellation.
