Mugithi artist Fatxo has denied being a member of the LGBTQI community.
The star was responding to the allegations that he and his cousin plus the driver might have sexually abused Jeff Mwathi on the night he died.
Speaking exclusively to Mpasho's Kalondu Musyimi, he said;
"I am not gay, I have never been and I will never be. The people who wanted to bring me down came up with lies because they felt like the murder story won't work.
I love women and women love me. I did not start posting my girlfriend because people said I am gay. What pisses me off is the musicians we hang out with I have ever touched them.
It was the most painful thing to me, I expected all the ladies I have had relations with to come out and confirm I am not gay.I was tempted to leak intimate photos."
Fatxo says he is waiting to see what his enemies will come up with next.
Fatxo was the main suspect in the death of Jeff Mwathi.
He took to his socials to celebrate after he was cleared off the suspect list by the DCI.
In the post, he asked people not to be quick to judge him.
