After Shauwn Mkhize, the founder of Royal AM, issued an official statement, Sithelo Shozi persisted in her pursuit of “justice.” The Durban-based DJ Sithelo Shozi shared some DMs between her and Shauwn in which she begs for them to get together to resolve a “issue.”
Sithelo disclosed that she had allegedly been the victim of numerous sorts of abuse from her baby daddy, Andile Mpisane. When she stated that they all allegedly saw the same incident and even rushed her to the hospital, she mentioned his entire family.
In a statement addressing the situation, Shauwn claimed that her family had never seen any mistreatment and that her claims were false.
“I have been made aware of allegations made against my son, Andile Mpisane by Sithole Shozi on her Instagram account,” the statement starts. “I do not take lightly these accusations given my history and strong stance against gender-based violence. I do not and will never condone violence in any form or nature.”
“I would like to categorically state that neither myself nor my family have been witness to any alleged abuse. These allegations are false and defamatory. Given the nature, severity, and extent of these allegations, the matter has been referred to our legal team. It’s of the utmost importance that the law takes its course,” she said.
However Sithelo Shozi leaked a private conversation between her and Shauwn, trying to prove that Shauwn is apparently lying about not knowing about the abuse.
In the DM’s, Shauwn pleads with Sithelo to meet up with her and asks if her mother would also like to be present. Other people would also attend this meeting including her brother, her sister and her brother-in-law implying that Andile needs a father figure in his life.
“I can’t do this alone, we have left this thing for too long. This thing affects us both,” the message from Shauwn apparently reads.
Sithelo then agrees for the meeting, saying it is what Andile needs in his but said her mother is not too involved with things.
In another message Shauwn apologises to Sithelo about a certain issue but says she cannot help her at that moment because she was busy with court.
“You and Andy are really stressing me now, I don’t know what to do anymore. I have spoken to both of you as a mother but it seems like my advices are not being considered,” she says
She continues by saying she cannot force both of them to do anything.
Sithelo shared clips from a phone call between her and Andile where he shouts at her saying she will never amount to anything in life. He also apparently says she will forever remain beneath him.
Sithelo said she does not like talking about her private life, “I am not one to speak about anything concerning my private life. More especially where my kids are involved. But everyone has a breaking point and this narrative has gone too far. I have been silent for far too long and hid my truth for the sake of my peace but today I will not be silenced.”
