Radio jock DJ Fresh has denied allegations of rape made against him on social media and urged “genuine” victims of GBV to report it.
A mystery woman, calling herself @Nampree, accused Fresh, real name Thato Sikwane, and his bra Euphonik of drugging and raping her and three other women, IOL reports.
In a series of tweets that went viral on Tuesday, she wrote: “@DJFreshSA & @euphonik will you ever acknowledge drunking [drugging] me & further raping me? I was completed [completely] drugged I don’t [know] 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 (you raped us). (sic)”
She added she was a virgin at the time of the alleged assault and had to take anxiety pille before speaking about the incident .
The 947 radio presenter said the claims are “untrue and from an unknown source”.
He was deeply concerned about “spurious allegations of GBV”, a significant societal challenge in SA.
“Please, should you have a substantiated concern or be the victim of a genuine case of GBV, I urge you to immediately go ... lay a charge.”
947 and Primedia Broadcasting said they “have received no formal notification of substantiation from the relevant authorities”.
