Thato Sikwane, otherwise known as DJ Fresh, is facing another bout of sexual assault accusations on social media.
On Wednesday, Twitter was rocked by a woman, known only by her username @Nampree, who claimed that the House producer and radio host, as well as Euphonik, had allegedly drugged and sexually assaulted her.
@DJFreshSA & @euphonik will you ever acknowledge drunking 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— I believe victims ❤ (@Nampree) January 11, 2021
The unidentified woman further claimed that at the time of the alleged ordeal, she was chasted.
I had to take anxiety meds to even tweet this 😭— I believe victims ❤ (@Nampree) January 11, 2021
Both celebrities have not acknowledged the woman’s accusations and it is unclear if a criminal case has been opened against them.
This isn’t the first Fresh rape accusation
For DJ Fresh, it’s not the first time he has dealt with sexual assault accusations. In September 2019, the DJ was named in an exhaustive list of alleged abusers by the #IAMNext movement.
His former partner and fellow radio host Penny Lebyane, was the whistleblower. Their relationship ended 20 years ago but when South African women came forward with stories of their abuse, Lebyane opened a can of worms on her alleged past with Fresh.
The veteran radio and TV personality detailed the extent of the alleged abuse she suffered in her relationship with the top jock, who allegedly cheated multiple times with underage high school girls.
Following this, songstress Ntsiki Mazwai came forward with her own claims about Fresh. Mazwai labelled the DJ a ‘celebrity rapist’ and alleged that, 18 years ago, he had allegedly forced himself on a woman named Swazi at a nightclub in Montecasino, Johannesburg.
In his defence, Fresh rubbished Lebyane as a scorned ex-girlfriend who has held a grudge for two decades. Regarding Mazwai’s allegations, the radio host took the matter to court, where it still remains in contention.
