- Euphonik has reacted after being told to lay low after his their sexual assault case was thrown out of court
- Entertainment commentator Phil Mpela advised Euphonik and Fresh to stop posting statements to prove their innocence
- Euphonik told Phil to keep his advice and use it when he is also dragged on social media
Euphonik has reacted to entertainment commentator Phil Mpela's advice that he and DJ Fresh should stop putting out statements after their rape case was dismissed due to lack of evidence.
Phil took to Twitter recently to advise Euphonik and Fresh to stop defending themselves against the "public opinion". A woman earlier this year accused the two popular musicians of drugging and raping her when she was still a student some years back.
Euphonik and Fresh's case was thrown out of court this week due to lack of evidence to prosecute and they have been posting statements to prove their innocence. Phil expressed that the tweets and press statements "aren't doing them any good".
Euphonik shared that Phil is not immune to the court of public opinion. The star reacted to Phil:
"Until it happens to you brother. You are not immune. Continue to rise and they will soon find a reason to try bring you to your knees. Then when that happens you can follow your own advice."
Tweeps have shared mixed reactions to Euphonik's response to the TV host. Check out some of their comments below:
"This is true, it's easier to give advice while watching from the fence... And I don’t think they’re trying to get the story to die down, this is not just a story but people’s lives and reputations on the line... They are simply trying to prove their innocence."
"Kgopolo doesn't really understand or comprehend what is really happening. I feel sorry for him."
Phil reacted to @TheCyclone:
"There are no winners or exoneration in the court of public opinion. Like I stated, I totally get it. They want their story to be heard but this strategy is not gonna yield the results they hope for. It instead invites further scrutiny. This approach is tainting their rep."
"@DJFreshSA and Themba have been stars for decades and have been with all sorts of girls, manje some of those girls they've been with are gonna ride this rape accusation train for clout or ease their guilty conscience that at some stage in life they were a mere stock."
"They say never laugh at anyone, we all live on earth, you will one day be in the same situation."
In related news, Briefly.co.za reported that DJ Euphonik recently came under fire for his comments on feminism. The musician took to Twitter on Tuesday, 16 February to share his opinion after he and DJ Fresh's rape case was thrown out of court due to lack of sufficient evidence.
A woman recently accused Euphonik and DJ Fresh of drugging and sexually assaulting her back when she was still a student. The National Prosecuting Authority confirmed on Tuesday that it had decided not to prosecute in the rape case. An excited Euphonik took to the micro-blogging app and posted:
"Shout out to the toxic feminist brigade who are conscious liars and delusionists that don’t know the difference between fact or fiction. You can’t rape someone you’ve never met and don’t know. No matter how much you want to believe it it won’t make it true."
He was responding to the hate that both he and Fresh received from tweeps who called them out after the woman made the allegations. The star's tweet rubbed many the wrong way.
