Fresh and Euphonik cleared of rape allegations but lose their radio gig 



The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has dropped the rape case against DJ Fresh and Euphonik. The duo were accused of raping a woman at a party in 2011.

Both DJs denied the claims. The NPA says it looked at the docket and decided not to prosecute due to a lack of evidence which makes the case unwinnable.

DJ Fresh and Euphonik were suspended from music station 94.7fm after the rape allegations made headline news early last month.

“We look forward to our names being cleared. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find common ground with Primedia and have agreed a release from our obligations to the broadcaster, with immediate effect. Thank you to Primedia for the great broadcasting opportunities and moments,” this was a statement released  by DJ Fresh and Euphonik after the allegations of rape spread like a wild fire.

In recent short statement Fresh and Euphonik say they’re deeply saddened that GBV has been weaponised in this manner.

This was not the first time DJ Fresh had faced such accusations. Last year, Ntsiki Mazwai posted allegations on social media claiming DJ Fresh had raped her.

DJ Fresh, born Thato Sikwane, successfully pursued an injunction in court that forced Mazwai to remove all the social media posts referring to the allegations.
