Formal rape case opened against DJ Fresh and Euphonik
Editors note: A previous version of this article stated that Ntsiki Mazwai alleged that DJ Fresh raped her. She, in fact, referenced a post on Facebook in which other alleged perpetrators of sexual violence were mentioned.
JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng police have confirmed that a formal case of rape has been opened against two well-known radio personalities.
Earlier this week, a woman took to Twitter, accusing DJ Fresh and Euphonik of drugging and raping her in 2011.
@DJFreshSA & @euphonik will you ever acknowledge drunking me & further raping me? I was completed drugged I don't whether you BOTH raped me or 1 of you did & you later laughed about it the next morning saying we (me & 3 girls) were so drunk we kept blacking out but nasidlwengula— Sipelele Madikizela (@Nampree) January 11, 2021
Police authorities confirmed to TshisaLIVE that the woman who levelled allegations of rape against the two men had opened a case of rape at Sunnyside police station on 13 January.
Both DJ Fresh and Euphonik are employed by music radio station 947, owned by Eyewitness News’ parent company Primedia Broadcasting.
In a statement released earlier, acting Primedia Broadcasting CEO Geraint Crwys-Williams said 947 and Primedia Broadcasting were evaluating all the information of the alleged misconduct.
“We take these matters extremely seriously and apply a rigorous, systematic internal process to assess them. We are awaiting substantiation of the current information from the relevant authorities. Once we have this, we will respond accordingly.”
Last year, another woman, Ntsiki Mazwai, posted allegations on social media claiming DJ Fresh was a rapist.
DJ Fresh successfully pursued an injunction in court that forced her to remove all the social media posts referring to the allegations.
Mazwai told thousands of her followers that the popular DJ was a rapist while referencing another post on Facebook in which other alleged perpetrators of sexual violence were mentioned.
