NDOLA Central Hospital (NCH) has slammed as untrue social media reports suggesting that celebrated Gospel maestro Kings Malembe Malembe was hospitalised for an overdose intake of sex boosters.
NCH public relations manager Sheona Kamwando says the institution has never attended to Kings during this period as claimed in the reports.
“We have never treated or admitted Kings here or any patients with such a condition of overdose sex boosters in the recent past. It is not true,” she says.
Kings himself has simply describedthe recent social media posting was not only malicious but an attack on the body of Christ through people in the ministry of Gospel music.
He says it has since been discovered that the originator of the same report is a fellow artiste trying to use a scandal to gain attention for himself as a footnote advertisement of a soon-to-come album.
“ You know, I am now used to such kind of cheap gossip and if they think I am going to make a big deal out of it, aleibepafye, (he is lying to himself) because I am way above that mediocrity,” he says.
Kings says ever since his name became associated with being one of the President’s favourite gospel music ministers, many have tried all tricks to pull him down but failure has always been their potion.
He has since urged Zambians not to believe whatever is posted on social media, going by the recent record of abuse by many to channel falsehood.
Kings, who is still enjoying massive airplay especially with his latest hit music album, believes there is something that needs to be done to discourage such abuse that has even spread to the county’s leadership.
He warns that if left unchecked, such kind of falsehood would lead to the killing of the music industry.
