Mzansi DJ's Fresh and Euphonik have had their rape case set aside. DJ Euphonik released a statement on February 15. According to Euphonik, the sexual assault claim was investigated by the authorities and it was found that the allegations are without merit.
"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," said Euphonik.
The Mzansi record producer thanked his family, friends supporters and their legal team.
South Africans were outraged when the allegations against Fresh and Euphonik were made. The timeline went into a frenzy after the woman tweeted that she had been allegedly sexually abused by the two.
Social media users reacted to the statement that Euphonik posted to his Twitter account. Take a look at some of the reactions below:
"I saw this coming because we all know that rich ppl will always get away with anything."
"You are aware that this does not prove your innocence right?"
"You will one day be falsely accused and we will hear if you would be singing the same song baba."
"Served her right. She wanted to ruin you guys' reputation and the attempt has failed. I wish there was a way where women that lie about being raped to get punishment. This is a serious allegation that can tint a person's image to the society."
"Lack of evidence is always the order of the day when it comes to rape in this country."
