DJ Mo has been embroiled in a nightmare affair that just doesn’t seem to go away. The affair, in this case, is the allegation that he charges gospel musicians money so that he can play their music videos on his popular Crossover 101 on NTV.
The show can be a linchpin for an artist who wants to desperately make it in this industry. Why? Because of the much-needed airplay that musicians need for their music to enter the collective consciousness of the public.
So getting on the show is the goal for many an up and coming musician. Take Nexxie for example.
The artist claims to have sent 20,000 shillings to Dj Mo for his song to be played on his show. He said:
“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 airplays 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.”
But the Crossover host vehemently refutes the claim. He provided evidence that he returned the money to Nexxie’s manager contrary to claims that he had kept the money. The messages also show that Nexxie is being used by some “people” with nefarious motives who want to take down DJ Mo. The screenshots are below:
From the evidence provided, you can tell that the DJ has been the victim of bad press while he has been upfront with his side of the story. What do you think?
