DJ Fresh fired from radio amid r@pe accusations.DJ Fresh and Euphonik- or Themba- for the international readers looking to beware of, this week experienced some turbulence which they wish tweeps could move on from without asking questions.
The internet was shaken when a tweep took to Twitter to tell her rape story, where she accuses the F-Eu duo of at least both drugging her and at most, both taking turns to have their way with her. The tweep did stipulate that she was uncertain about the details due to being date-raped.
This morning, entertainment commentator Phil Mphela, issued a statement which he claims is from Primedia suspending the two DJ’s from 947 until further notice. This, according to the statement will give them time to deal with the current allegations against them.
The two DJ’s issued a statement responding to the claims and according to the statement, they’ll be stepping away from public engagement until the matter is resolved.
The lady is adamant that it was the two DJ’ing faves. While Euphonik, or Themba, has not dealt with many numerous rape accusations. What the DJ has had to deal with is being a labelled an abuser, which he has contested. And in a case of she-said and he-said, details can get messy.

In previous tweets, Fresh denied the allegations. He went on to state that he has never met the accuser, and that should she feel so strongly that she should open a criminal case. As he wished, so it was done should latest news reports be true.
#DJFresh Both DJ Fresh and Euphonik are employed by music radio station 947, owned by Primedia Broadcasting.
In a statement, acting Primedia Broadcasting CEO Geraint Crwys-Williams said 947 & Primedia Broadcasting were "evaluating all the information of the alleged misconduct".

On Friday, 15 January 2021, news reports stated that they could confirm that a criminal rape charge has been laid against Fresh and Euphonik. Now we wait for the case to be thrown out “due to a lack of evidence” so misogynistic Twitter can say “we told you so,” like this will be the last time Fresh’s name comes up with another alleged rape accusation.
