A rape case has been opened against DJ Fresh and Euphonik, two renowned South African radio personalities. Earlier this week, a Twitter user accused the pair of allegedly drugging and raping her in 2011.
“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.
Gauteng police confirmed to TshisaLIVE that the woman, who alleges the pair raped her, opened a case of rape at Sunnyside police station on January 13. The woman preferred to remain anonymous but she said the incident took place in 2011.
She was a second-year student at the University of Pretoria at the time.
One of the DJs dismissed the allegations as untrue, earlier this week and labelled them as “hurtful and false”, according to TshisaLIVE but refused to provide further comment once the case had been confirmed by police.
Both DJ Fresh (Thato Sikwane, aged 48) and Euphonik (Themba Nkosi, 37) are employed by music radio station 94.7, a sister station of Cape Town’s Kfm 94.5.
Geraint Crwys-Williams, the Acting CEO of Primedia Broadcasting – the parent company of the radio stations – said the company would evaluate the allegations against the implicated artists.
“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.”
The case is under investigation by police.
