DJ Franky “Trips” & Falls Over Euphonik/Bonang Drama
Once upon a time we were having a quiet Sunday afternoon on Twitter.
It was a cold day and apart from annoying tweets about how cold it was, there wasn’t much drama.
Earlier that day we had read from Sunday Sun, allegations that Euphonik had paid lobola for a girl called Swazi Tshabalala that he had apparently been dating since 2006. This came as a shock to people who knew him as Bonang Matheba’s boyfriend of 2 years. The story went as far as saying that Euphonik had told Swazi’s family being with Bonang was part of his job.
Those who have been following the chronicles of B and Euphonik were not surprised as they had seen this Swazi name before on the Just Curious comments, and some knew that she was someone Euphonik had been with way before he met Bonang. But still… not many knew or believed that it was true that he’d paid lobola for another girl when the country knew him as Superman… Is it true? That’s the question of the week.
Those who follow Euphonik recalled his recents tweets about getting married soon… and were shocked as they thought he was referring to the Queen B. When the tabloid story came out, Euphonik did not comment, he just laughed it off.
People were carrying on with their weather tweets when Euphonik’s fellow DJ, Franky decided to claim his Moemish Of The Month award.
Had this been a different time, different circumstances, the people of Twitter agreed that he would’ve been awarded a Friend Of The Year award but his timing was off.
When confronted with the ignorance of implying that :
- because Bonang did not have visible bruises like Rihanna, we should not believe her,
- or that she cannot be believed because she has appeared in public less than a month after the “ordeal”,
he changed tune and said that it was not what he meant.
He never did tweet and explain where he was going with those Rihanna/Chris Brown tweets but given the backlash he received for those 3 tweets, keeping quiet was the best decision.
Phela Phela nga ntsomi. (aka The End)
Still on this subject….
I respect Bonang’s choice to keep silent during this drama but given Euphonik’s denial and the fact that the only confirmation her fans have of this “abuse “is her tweet, (and perhaps Euphonik handing himself to the cops) a statement from her camp would go a long way.
I don’t believe she needs to get into details on what happened but her fans are really confused and she would do well to clear up the confursion. All her team needs to say is that she has opened a case of whatever and that she can’t talk about it until it’s over. But that’s just me… I’m no PR specialist.
