Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Primedia Broadcasting has parted ways with DJ Fresh and Euphonik, the media company confirmed in a statement on Wednesday night, 10 February.
DJ Fresh and Euphonik trended on social media a few weeks back after a woman accused them of drugging her and sexually assaulting her while she was still a student some years back.
Both the musician's names have been trending on Twitter since the news broke that Primedia has decided to release the two stars from their contracts.
In the statement, Primedia Broadcasting said:
"After careful consideration of the events of the last few weeks, the company has decided to release DJ Fresh and Euphonik from their contracts."
In other news, Briefly.co.za recently spoke with, Thubelihle Zooma the founder of Sahiba, a local organisation started by a determined young man who wanted to make a difference in the lives of South African women and children.
According to Zooma, who was also awarded a certificate as a Covid-19 HERO by YoLeaf, he was tired of the fact that so many men were contributing to GBV and violence against children - something that gave rise to women across the world declaring that "men are trash." Zooma, determined to prove that the same cannot be said about all men, wanted to do something to both empower women and raise their levels of trust and confidence in men again.
