mid rape allegations that surfaced earlier in the week against Fresh and Euphonik, the O-Ship duo has decided to step away from all public work engagements, the duo’s “public” engagement includes that of 947!
947 reported that the pair reached an agreement with Primedia Broadcasting that they would step down from their roles with immediate effect after rape cases were opened against the two.
Both DJ Fresh and Euphonik are employed by music radio station 947, owned by Eyewitness News’ parent company Primedia Broadcasting.
“In light of the serious allegations levelled against us we’ve decided to step away from all public work engagements until such time that this matter has been resolved and the law has taken its course,” said Fresh and Euphonik in a statement released on Saturday via their official social media pages.
On Tuesday a certain lady who is known by the name Nampree accused DJ Fresh and Euphonik of allegedly drugging her and raping her in 2011.
She has not revealed many details about how and where the alleged incident took place. However, she added: “Just so you know? I was a virgin when y’all did that to me. I had to take anxiety meds to even tweet this.”
“@DJFreshSA & @euphonik will you ever acknowledge drugging 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,” said Nampree in a tweet direct to both the well-known disc jockeys.
On Friday it emerged that the woman who goes by the name of Nampree has opened a case of rape at the Sunnyside police station on Wednesday.
According to Times Live, authorities have confirmed that the “woman” who levelled allegations of rape against the two well-known DJs has opened a rape case and the matter is currently under investigation.
Nampree told the publication that the alleged rape occurred in 2011 at chillas (small-party) she attended with a friend, who was apparently invited by one of the DJs.
According to the report at the time, Nampree was a second-year student at the University of Pretoria, where she was studying towards a Bachelor of commerce qualification.
“First, I want to make it clear I was not some kind of stocko or whatsoever people call girls organized to entertain the DJs. I was simply accompanying a friend to a chillas, and that’s where the whole thing happened,” said Nampree as quoted by the publication.
According to the publication Police spokesperson Captain. Mavela Masondo confirmed the existence of the case on Thursday.
“As per case the number you provided, I can confirm a case of rape was opened at Sunnyside police station and is under investigation. No arrests have been made,” he said.
