Johannesburg – Radio 702 and 947 owners Prime Media has fired radio DJs Fresh and Euphonik following the rape allegations that the pair is facing.

The media company announced the decision on Wednesday evening, indicating that it opted to release the two popular DJs from their contracts.

“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,” reads the statement.
