Musician James Kamthumba known in the music circles as ‘Born Chris’ is in police custody for dissing Queen B in a song.
This is according to Blantyre police publicist, Inspector Augustus Nkhwazi, who said Born Chris was arrested on Friday, 2nd February on charges of insulting the modesty of a woman contrary to section 137 (1)(3) of the Penal Code.
Inspector Nkhwazi said police at Manase in the city received a complaint from Miss Bertha Lomoti known as Queen B, 25, of Ling’awa village, T/A Lundu in Chikwawa that her modesty has been put to shame in the face of the public through a song done by the suspect.
The female musician complained that Kamthumba through his single titled ‘Queen B diss’ which became viral on social media in early January continuously uses abusive language in describing her.

The suspect is expected to appear before court on Wednesday 7th February, 2018.
