Urgent court! Bonang Matheba’s first boyfriend DJ Euphonik breathes fire at Ntsiki Mazwai over rape slur

 

DJ Euphonik has applied for an urgent court interdict to prevent singer and self-professed poet Ntsiki Mazwai from calling him a rapist, among others, on social media. He filed the court papers within the Joburg supreme court last week on Tuesday and gave the Uwrongo hitmaker 10 days to opposes his application. In the court papers, which we’ve seen, Euphonik, real name Themba Mbongeni Nkosi, said Ntsiki had retweeted a post by Women For Change that urged certain DJS to not perform with him as how of showing support and respect for each survivor of gender-based violence. This was in apparent reaction to DJ Black Coffee’s decision to ask him to perform at his birthday celebration. “If you wanna see the opposite rapists, watch who is rallying behind other rapists. When DJS put one another on the line-ups, it’s like a call for participation to a rapethe-groupies party,” she wrote. Euphonik, who happens to be one among media darling Bonang Matheba’s first boyfriends, said the tweets included the word “#muteeuphonik”. He said when she was asked by other tweeps what her thoughts were on Black Coffee booking him to perform at his birthday kneeup, Ntsiki replied by saying “birds of a feather flock together”. The aggrieved Euphonik also said on March 12 that Ntsiki tweeted that the event was getting to be attended by a known rapist and a known domestic abuser, in apparent regard to an accusation made by Black Coffee’s estranged wife Mbali Mlotshwa that he had assaulted her. “And you’ll rally and clap hands sort of a bunch of monkeys who can’t tell right from wrong. A gig with predators and violent men within the line-up. Nice,” reads the tweet, consistent with the court papers. Euphonik said while Ntsiki seemed to have attempted to avoid naming him, the sole inference to be drawn from her posts was that her comments were directed at him. “The respondent has seen fit aver/infer/convey, that i’m a rapist, an abuser which i’m violent.” Euphonik also said Ntsiki’s defamatory posts were premised on the rape allegations levelled against him by a Tshwane woman, which were dismissed by the National Prosecution Authority. He said Ntsiki’s intention was to convey innuendo to her 14 200 Instagram followers and 269 700 Twitter followers that he wasn’t only unethical and dishonest, but had also conducted himself improperly, was without moral fibre and undeserving holding himself out as an influential name. Euphonik said she had ignored letters requesting her to retract the posts and to apologise. Ntsiki declined to comment. – Sunday World
