BRIEF: Euphonik and Fresh fired

DJs Euphonik and Fresh have been sacked from broadcaster Primedia over rape allegations. Primedia, the company which owns stations 947, Talk Radio 702, Cape Talk and EWN said in a statement this week that the two had been released from their contracts. However, the company said this wasn’t a reflection on whether the pair was guilty – it was strictly a business decision. Fresh and Euphonik maintain their innocence and said this week they would continue with their public engagements. 

The duo have been charged with rape after they allegedly drugged and raped a woman at a party in 2011. 

Some call it “cancel culture”, some call it consequences. Either way, we hope the truth will out.
