Remember when Black Coffee joked about South African men twerking on uMlando Challenge? Well, Euphonik tried it too but tweeps did not take it well.
The internationally renowned DJ asked on Twitter if it's safe for him to come back home, "are the Okes done twerking?"  Euphonik asked.

The DJ did not get the response that he might have hoped for. Taking to the comments section, Ori wrote: "Nah stay where you are. Safety of women has tightened by 1% in your absence… be practicing new photoshop skills because previously it did not end well for you…"
Euphonik has been dragged into several GBV allegations, including the allegations that he abused his ex-girlfriend, the multi-award-winning TV personality Bonang Matheba.

A few months ago, a Twitter user named @Nampree on the platform alleged that Euphonik and his friend DJ fresh drugged and raped her and her three other friends.

"@DJFreshSA & @euphonik will you ever acknowledge drugging me & further raping me? I was completed drugged I don't (know) whether you BOTH raped me or 1 of you did & you later laughed about it the next morning saying we (me & 3 girls) were so drunk we kept blacking out but nasidlwengula (you raped us)" she tweeted. "Just so you know? I was a virgin when y'all did that to me," @Nampree tweeted.

In their defense, the pair had this to say on Twitter:
DJ Fresh tweeted, "This is all so weird, having to explain myself about a person I don’t even know!!!!" 

Euphonik hinted that they have taken legal action, "Hi @SAPoliceService not sure who we can talk to but we’re waiting for a case number and eagerly anticipating details. Thank you."

The allegation cost Euphonik and Fresh their 94.7 gig. Primedia released a statement amid the allegations stating that the company has decided to part ways with the pair. However, the company stated that the decision was not influenced by the allegations leveled against the DJs.

The statement read: "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.

“This decision does not reflect a view on the veracity of any allegations against either Euphonik or Fresh. Rather it prioritises Primedia Broadcasting’s business imperatives. We believe that this decision is in the best interest of our company and our various stakeholders,” says Geraint Crwys-Williams, Interim CEO of Primedia Broadcasting.

DJ Fresh and Euphonik also released a joint statement thanking the broadcaster for the great broadcasting opportunities and moments.
"Unfortunately, we can't find common ground with Primedia and have agreed a release from our obligations to the broadcaster with immediate effects," they said in a statement also announcing that they are ready to resume all their public engagements.

"After extensive consultations, legal and otherwise, we have concluded that this is in our best interest to resume all of our public engagement...We look forward to our names being cleared."

The rape charges against DJ Fresh and Euphonik were eventually dropped.
