The mother of one went on to detail how the ordeal unfolded, saying the DJ/ producer forcefully tried to kiss her in an elevator:

"I’m so triggered! Not me being sexually harassed by one of your faves after rejecting his advances.
"This guy grabbed me by the waist trying to kiss me, the way I had to push him away from me, that time we’re in a lift!"

In response to a netizen asking if it was the DJ, Ngcebo confirmed and received countless messages of support.

He went on to share a clip that showed the group of people he was with and indicated that he and Ngcebo were never in close proximity.

In closing, the producer requested that fans and netizens do not harass Ngcebo over the claims she made, and revealed that he would take legal steps to clear his name:

"Mr JazziQ asks that Ms Mcobothi, who has not opened a criminal case against him, strongly consider the implications of the damaging lie she has spread.
"He will have no option but to pursue the legal route to clear his name so that this cloud of suspicion can be lifted from him."

This was Mzansi's reaction to the statement:

South African comedian, Tol A$$ Mo supported JazziQ and referenced his past incidents:

"It's the easiest way anyone can destroy your career, even in your innocence; now you have to deal with a lie. Sue her, and if she can't pay, send her to jail. Let me show you an example with Lerato Moloi; this year won't end; she will be behind bars."

"Just because women are really being sexually harassed, doesn't mean everyone is doing it. I'm not saying this because I'm a fan; I'm saying this because you can clearly see a lie. Let's not ruin people for no reason."
