DJ Levels arrested over rape claims by former Health Minister’s daughter
Despite initial reports that he had fled for South Africa, Chilspot Records producer Tafadzwa ‘Levels’ Kadzimwe has been arrested and is currently being held at Borrowdale Police Station in Harare awaiting his court appearance.
Levels is being accused of rape by his ex-girlfriend Ashley ‘Shashl’ Moyo, the daughter of the former Health Minister Obadiah Moyo.
The RnB singer pressed rape charges against her ex-boyfriend after their sex tape was leaked last month something that has cast doubt on her claims.
State owned tabloid H-Metro initially reported that a source had claimed that Levels has been trying in vain to invite Shashl to South Africa to negotiate the possible withdrawal of the charges.
“Levels cannot be located or reached on his mobile phone,” said the source.
“He was last seen at Borrowdale Police Station with Shashl for counselling a day before the latter lodged a police report against him.
“It is from that meeting where Levels sensed danger, the consequences of the nude videos, and decided to flee,” said the source.
Levels’ rape case was reported at Borrowdale police station .
“Sometime in July 2021 date unknown the accused person and the complainant were not yet in a relationship but were working together in music at Chillspot studio in Mbare.
