DJ Fresh has broken his silence following a series of rape allegations laid against him and his buddy, DJ Euphonik. The two were dragged on Twitter by a lady known as @Nampree for allegedly drugging and raping her.
Speaking to media, the 947 DJ and radio presenter refuted these claims leveled against him, saying he’s hurt that these allegations are made again. He told the publication that he doesn’t know these women and has flatly denied raping these women.
“I am aware that assertions are made about me on social media and that i understand that this is often often the worth of being within the limelight . the very fact that these claims are untrue and from an unknown source, doesn’t make them less hurtful,” Fresh told IOL.
He further spoke about the widespread problem that’s Gender-Based Violence within the country saying the lady who accused him of rape is undermining the legit cases that are on the increase .
“I am deeply concerned that spurious allegations about GBV , especially because it is one among the foremost significant societal challenges in South Africa , undermine the gravity of legitimate incidents, and impact the urgency with which they’re attended. whenever someone succumbs to the temptation of using GBV to further personal agendas, the cause to eradicate this scourge takes a step backwards.“
He then encouraged victims to pursue the relevant channels and lay charges against their abusers immediately.
“Please, do you have to have a substantiated concern or be the victim of a real case of GBV, I urge you to right away attend your local police headquarters and lay a charge. Pursuing the matter through a legal and criminal process is that the best thanks to make sure that you get the protection you would like .”
947 commented on the matter and said albeit they’re monitoring the matter, they’re expecting formal and legal notifications from authorities to require further action.
The accuser @Nampree had not announced whether she had laid a charge against the 2 DJ’s.
She said although she isn’t completely sure whether both Euphonik and DJ Fresh raped her, she is adamant that she was raped by either of them. All she wants is an apology and for them to acknowledge the alleged rape incident.
“@DJFreshSA & @euphonik will you ever acknowledge drugging me & further raping me? i used to be completed drugged i do not (know) whether you BOTH raped me or 1 of you probably did & you later laughed about it subsequent morning saying we (me & 3 girls) were so drunk we kept blacking out but nasidlwengula (you raped us)” she tweeted.
