Malicious, unfounded gossip and gossipers… What a waste of air, honestly! I look at some of the magazine shelves in the shops and I think to myself how on earth do these journalists, editors come up with this shit? Who are their sources? And why are they out to make people look bad? Yes I’m in the entertainment industry and yes I’m guilty of having consumed some of this news in the past, but I’ve never had any desire to write for a tabloid etc. Unfortunately while my little, “I’m all about the craft” ideas are sweet, people clearly want the trash. And speaking of trash, DJ Fresh has vehemently denied and rubbished reports about him having fathered a love child.
In the 22nd of June edition of the Sunday Sun, reports surfaced alleging that Fresh, otherwise known as Thato Sikwane, had fathered a child with his manager of 15 years. Fresh is so peeved by these allegations leveled against him that he has lodged a formal complaint against the publication with the Press Council and demanded a front-page retraction. He has also requested the article be removed from the site.
“I do not have a child with her and must add I was not given fair opportunity to reply to any of the allegations either. The article correctly states that I was in Botswana – but no attempt was made to contact me at my hotel and no attempt was made to obtain contact details for me in Botswana from my wife, my manager or anybody else. There was no attempt to contact me via social media,” he says.
I hope the Press Council rules in his favour.
