On Tuesday, musician Lawrence Njuguna aka DJ Fatxo released his first single in over six months.

The comeback song of the Mugiithi singer who has been fighting murder charges for the past three months is the Kikuyu gospel song 'Ngatho' (Shukran) where he thanks God for helping him overcome everything he went through and giving him another chance.

"I was thrown away so that I would not be seen. But your hands, God, received me. My name was being mentioned as they ran away, but God gave me your shoulder to cry on...,” DJ Fatxo sang in the song.


The reception that the five-minute song received on YouTube surprised the 27-year-old singer and he could not hide his joy.

"Wueh, I'm so overwhelmed with emotions that I don't even know what to say. 50k views in 12 hours.

Thank God and each of you who watched this testimony of mine. It's a blessing from God," DJ Fatxo said on Facebook.


The singer has returned to music just a few weeks after the DPP cleared him of murder charges following the death of 23-year-old Jeff Mwathi, who died at his home earlier this year.

At the end of last month, the director of Public Prosecutions, Noordin Haji explained the reason not a single person was arrested on suspicion of being involved in the death of the interior designer.

In a letter to the Director of Criminal Investigation (DCI) signed by Assistant Director of Public Prosecutions Gikui Gichuhi, the DPP made it clear that no one pleaded guilty.

Speaking during an interview with Massawe Japanni in mid-May, DJ Fatxo said that the deceased was his friend and pointed out that he had no reason to harm him.

"Jeff was my friend. I see no reason to kill him," he said. However, he made it clear that their friendship was not close but professional.

"We were not close friends. We used to meet only when I was buying shoes," he said.
