It’s a tricky and sensitive one! Here we’re dealing with the life of a famous personality, DJ Fresh, whose plate has been taken off the table and a young lady, Nampree, who has her future ahead of her. As a result, we’ll be tiptoeing.
Earlier this year the social media was on fire when they heard of the news that DJ Fresh had allegedly rape a young woman by the name of Nampree. The DJ wasn’t the only one accused of the act but his friend Euphonik was also said to have committed the act with him.
The young lady took had initially taken to Twitter accusing the two of drugging and raping her in 2011. This saw both DJ Fresh and Euphonik being taken off air in January. However, we’ve not got to hear the details of what had transpired the night they allegedly raped the lady.
But this week the Big Dawg was a celebrity guest on Podcast And Chill with Mac G where he addressed the rape accusations levelled against him and Euphonik. Telling his story the radio star maintains ukuthi he is innocent though he had drunk sex before… Yoh… drunk what? “I have not had nonconsensual sex with anyone. Yes, I have had drunk sex. But I’ve never had non-consensual sex.” He said.
Going deeper Fresh explained that there’s life outside social media. “You know, unfortunately, I think we spent so much time thinking social media is life that we forget that there is a whole world out there that is not on social media or actually don’t give an F about social media. Initially, going out you were kind of not sure because of everything that was happening.”
Then he goes on to say that he had even went as far as taking a polygraph tests just to prove his innonence and to reassure himself that he didn’t do it. “You initially almost doubt yourself. Let me explain something to you. You know despite the fact that we had told our friends and family, thing never happened. We still went and did polygraph tests. Just out of our own to show that this thing never happened.
“But we went to that extent to show that one, we don’t know this person, we were never in Pretoria with this person. Even the best friend says that thing never happened. But I remember the first gig I did after all of that and I didn’t know what to expect. But you realise when you go out to the world all you get is hugs. I’ve never met any of those trolls. In fact, I’ve been off the radio this whole year and this past Heritage Day I’ve done more gigs than I did with radio,” he said.
