Afrotainment took to their social media accounts to address the recent charges that have been laid against dancer Nhlanhla Chiliza popularly known as Sgaqa for allegedly raping a 14-year-old girl. Founder of record label Afrotainment DJ Tira has released a statement in which he addressed the rape allegations made against one of his dancers Nhlanhla Chiliza.

In the statement, the company begins by setting the record straight, “Afrotainment would like to express to the members of the public, family of the alleged victim, and the press, that Afrotainment does NOT condone or promote, support any @buse of another human being.”

The record label which has signed some of South Africa’s biggest music stars explained in the statement how Sgaqa handed himself over to the police after he became aware of the charges laid against him.

Afrotainment continued to state that they would be supporting the 41-year-old and even described him as an “upstanding member of the community” further adding that he, “works hard towards the improvement of his neighbourhood and that of his community and has done outreach projects in his community.”

The company urged fans and members of the public to allow the law to take its course,

“I’m sure if one of your family was accused of something like this you would support them and wait on the evidence, police procedure and courts to determine what the truth is. We ask the public to please do the same.”

Sgaqa who was denied bail when he appeared before the court for the first time after the state argued that he could influence the victim or witnesses, has since been released on R5000 bail and is expected to appear back in court on 5 October according to reports.
