Last month an upcoming gospel artiste Nexxie fired shots at gospel DJ and media personality DJ Mo alleging that he bribed the DJ with sh 20,000 for his song to be put on rotation to receive massive airplay and media interviews of which DJ Mo did not fulfill his part of the bargain.

DJ Mo distanced himself from the allegations saying that middlemen purporting to have connections with him were conning gospel artistes with promises of airplay and media tour promotions.

Mo further insisted that sh 20,000 was just pocket change to him as he drives a range rover.

“I can’t take a bribe from anyone to play their music. Besides, I drive a Range Rover so what is Sh20,000 to me? There are so many accusations being peddled out there that we (deejays) take money from musicians but it’s the brokers who do it and this in turn soils our name,” DJ MO said.

However, on Monday,Nexxie who is also a banker by profession provided photographic evidence to prove that he had indeed sent sh 20,000 to DJ MO.

“To them, it was, “What is 20,000?” to me it was “Everything”.

I was promised “a raise to stardom” in a period of two months with consistent airplay on high rotation and exposure through interviews.

I lost my mum when I was only 13 years of age, and since then I promised myself to take care of my now aging father and siblings. So when this opportunity came my way, I had to do all I can in order to raise the amount including not paying rent for that month and skipping some meals.

“To me, it was not just 20,000; it was my whole life.” Nexxie captioned the photo.

However, Mo who seems to be fed up with being dragged into the mess has accused Nexxie of trying to gain fame through his name saying he refunded the 20,000 sent to him through Nexxie’s manager.

This comes just a few months after another gospel artiste Bahati was accused of conning businessman Benson Thuranira sh 200,000.
