DJ Fatxo claims radio interview was cancelled due to traffic delays, not uproar

Days after word went round that DJ Fatxo’s planned radio interview was cancelled due to an uproar by fans, his management has come out to claim that was not the case.

Fatxo was set for an interview at Ghetto Radio on Friday last week but a letter went round claiming a section of listeners had some reservations.

In a statement, his management said the interview was cancelled due to ‘unavoidable traffic delays’ that caused the artiste to arrive late.

“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.

“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,” read the letter in part.

Fatxo’s management called for accurate reporting on matters surrounding their client, highlighting some successful shows he has had since resuming from his sabbatical.

DJ Fatxo’s name was extensively mentioned during a probe into the murder of one Jeff Mwathi, who prior to his demise, was handling an interior design project for the artiste.

In mid-May, Fatxo asked the public not to jump to conclusions and pass judgement based on hearsay, maintaining that he had nothing to do with Mwathi’s death.

He conveyed his condolence message to the family of the deceased, acknowledging that it was an emotive case for the public.

“First and foremost, I want to express my deepest sympathies to Jeff's family and friends, and to anyone else who has been affected by this situation. I know that this has been a difficult time for many people, and I want to acknowledge the pain and hurt that has been caused by these accusations.

“I also want to take this opportunity to clear my name and to assure you all that I have been found not guilty after thorough investigations by the DCI detectives and the ODPP. While I am relieved to have this behind me, I know that there are still people who may be struggling with feelings of anger, frustration, and disappointment,” he wrote.

Adding: “I have gone through a very difficult period both emotionally and physically, and I know firsthand how damaging and hurtful it can be to be on the receiving end of false accusations and cyberbullying. Let's all take a moment to reflect on how we can be more compassionate, understanding, and respectful towards each other.”
