Afrochella suspends Deezy following allegations of sexual harassment

The group claimed it had zero tolerance for harassment, discrimination, or violence in a statement posted on Monday morning.

Deezy gained attention last week after a few girls accused him of making unwanted sexual advances toward them online.

More girls afterwards shared their experiences in the #OurExperiences Twitter Space, where it was founded.

One of the victims claimed on the Spaces, “If he gives you deek pik and you don’t welcome it, he’ll block you.”

The Afrochella organizers have now stated in a statement that all of the complaints are being looked into.

Deezy has since resigned from his position as Afrochella’s leader, the statement continued, as the internal inquiries continue.

A portion of the statement read, “Edward (Deezy) Asafu Adjaye will be stepping away from his leadership role and responsibilities at Afrochella as we perform our internal assessment, effective immediately.”
