DJ Fresh (Thato Sikwane) and Euphonik (Themba Nkosi) were accused of allegedly raping and drugging a woman in 2011.
Both DJs have released a joint statement on Monday 15 January, which states that their case had been dismissed by prosecutors and declared null and void.
We are pleased to state that, after considering all of the evidence collected while investigating the claim made by [the accuser] against us, the Chief Prosecutor has dismissed the allegations on the basis that the allegations are without merit,” the statement read.
The docket has been marked NOLLE PROSEQUI. As we’ve said before, these are false allegations and we are deeply saddened that GBV, a serious crisis in South Africa, was weaponised in this manner.
A huge thank you to all of our family, friends, supporters and to our legal team.
NPA Gauteng spokesperson Lumka Mahanjana told EWN that “The matter was indeed presented to the prosecutor. Upon perusal of all the evidence available in the docket, a decision not to prosecute was taken. There are no prospects of successful prosecution on the available evidence because the evidence is insufficient.”
Fresh and Euphonik have recently lost their jobs at 947, after Primedia Broadcasting terminated their contracts with immediate effect on Wednesday, 10 February 2021.
