CONTROVERSIAL DJ Fresh and Euphonik have been fired from their jobs by Primedia Broadcasting following the rape allegations leveled against the pair.
DJ Fresh (real name Thato Sikwane) and DJ Euphonik (real name Themba Nkosi) were employed by music radio station 947 which is owned by Primedia Broadcasting.
Below is the full statement from Primedia Broadcasting on the firing of the two DJs.
Primedia Broadcasting can confirm that, after careful consideration of the events of the last few weeks, the company has decided to release DJ Fresh and Euphonik from their contracts. Their last shows on 947 were aired on 15th January and 10th January 2021 respectively.
