B flow finally speaks out on accusations and speculative remarks concerning the late Brian Cheengwe (P-jay)’s tombstone.
He denied the claims that him and other musicians misappropriated funds meant for the late and his family, he said he only facilitated the collection of money but he had no right over it.
“We used our own resources to meet the daily costs of selling P-jay’s merchandise, not a single day did we ask the family for money to buy us lunch or a bottle of water after spending long days in the sun. we successfully sold all the t-shirts and CDs that the family had assigned to us and every transaction was recorded in a book that was handed over to the family together with all the money”, he said.
Speaking in a press statement released on Monday 16th October 2017, B-flow also expressed his disappointed over the accusations from the public and P-jay’s family for not defending him.
“I have never organized , attended or participated in any P-jay memorial/fundraising concert for personal reasons, it is saddening to read comments that mix my personal success and international tours with the P-jay tombstone fracas” B-flow said.
This follows after some of P-jay’s fans shared pictures and videos of his grave and claimed that B-flow and other musicians misappropriated the money they collected from the P-jay merchandise.
Meanwhile B-flow has pledged to build a headstone on late P-jay’s grave using the prize money he won from the 2017 Kwacha Music Awards For “Humanitarian Award“, if the family permits him,
