DJ FATXO, also known as Lawrence Njuguna, is a well-known DJ and Mugithi singer hailing from Nyandarua County, which is home to several popular Mugithi singers. He first made a name for himself in the entertainment industry as a DJ and gained popularity after joining Sailors Gang as their official DJ. However, it was his debut Mugithi hit, Ndi Mang’a, that catapulted him to instant stardom.
In early 2021, DJ Fatxo gifted his parents a house during Valentine’s Day celebrations, accompanied by a heartfelt message on social media thanking them for teaching him vital values. He also bought a new car for his girlfriend’s birthday, expressing his love for her. Despite rumours circulating on social media that he was dating former Muranga Woman Representative Sabina Chege, the singer strongly refuted these allegations, claiming that they were only business partners and friends.
Recently, DJ Fatxo was embroiled in controversy following the mysterious death of a 23-year-old man, Geoffrey Mwathi, in his apartment. Mwathi was contracted by the singer to refurbish the decor of his shop and office. The two went to various nightclubs with three women before arriving at DJ Fatxo’s apartment at around 3 am. CCTV footage showed DJ Fatxo leaving the apartment, leaving Mwathi with two nervous-looking men. Moments later, Mwathi’s body fell from the 10th floor of the building, and his family disputes the suicide claims.
Despite this controversy, DJ Fatxo has made a name for himself in the music industry, with over 150K YouTube subscribers.
