DJ Sbu denies promoting Mo Faya at Flabba's memorial

DJ Sbu was quick to dismiss reports that he promoted his Mo Faya energy drink at Flabba's memorial service last week. Sunday World reported that the DJ and entrepreneur erected a stand filled with cans of the drink outside the entrance to Bassline, where the memorial was held.

The paper wrote: "DJ Sbu is another one who needs to be taught etiquette. This man does not listen. He had a whole display of his energy drink just outside the venue...his efforts scream desperation."

Sbu was clearly not impressed. The DJ took to Facebook to express his disappointment and set the record straight.

He wrote: "To spread such distasteful lies about my presence at Flabba's memorial is uncalled for. These are the gentlemen I was with the whole time at the memorial to MOURN & nothing else.

"It's sad what journalism has been turned into. If the journo who wrote that piece has whatever personal issues with me, it's unfortunate that you would choose to take advantage of such a tragedy to assassinate my character.

"This is a tough & sad period for everyone in our industry not to mention close friends & family. To single me out as a heartless opportunist is both disappointing & unfair. #PoorJournalism. #Disappointed. #RIPFlabba." 

Sbu is currently is currently serving a suspension from Metro FM. This comes after he promoted his energy drink at the recent Metro FM Awards, where he was presenting an award.

He hasn't let his suspension get him down. Sbu is now focusing his energy on his new products. He recently revealed that he's in the process of launching his own brand of bread, titled "Nzo bread" and toilet paper called "Ntofo Ntofo".
