In a now deleted post Linda said, “DJ Fantan you have lost a fan today. Honestly we can’t have influencers being drug peddlers & drug lords whilst some of us are busy trying to find ways to clean up youths, you are busy promoting use of drugs. We are fast losing a generation to drug & substance abuse #sad.”

In response to the post Fantan called Linda and asking her to explain where she got a picture which she claims Fantan was carrying a plastic of drugs.
