“Oscar Mbo used to scam people for a living, he rebranded as a Deejay”
“Oscar Mbo is a scammer that deactivates/runs every time he gets in trouble. All he knows is to wear expensive clothes and buy songs from ghost producers and pretend as if they're his.”
Mzansi shook and mortified at MacG’s vulgar interview question for US singer Ari Lennox: “He embarrassed us”
“Oscar Mbo has the habit of running away with people's monies. This is not an isolated incident.”
“I see Oscar Mbo is back to his old ways.”
Facing the aftermath
Oscar Mbo was silent as the timeline lit up in flames due to his misconduct. As soon as he started trending, the denounced DJ deactivated his account to assumingly avoid facing the heat coming his way.
However, as per screenshots uploaded by Archie this morning, his manager has retorted to his claims, saying he didn’t make the booking through her. Unfortunately for her, Archie included a screenshot showing that he actually did approve everything with her.
The timeline is still lit with reactions to Archie’s story and many of the responses corroborate his claims. Many are coming out with their own stories, some even dating back to 2019 and Oscar has still said nothing.
