The author speaking to The Star about the matter for the first time, Phamotse said associates of the female media mogul married to the businessman have since contacted her and offered her money in order to stop the video leaking to the media.
Phamotse said, “First of all the person who owns the rights to the video is a young girl and does not want to distribute the video and does not want to negotiate any price for it.”
On Tuesday the author set social media ablaze on when she tweeted: “Just overheard a painful conversation, a Female TV mogul….Pleading with one of my girls to not share videos of her drunk and her husband rim**ng a celebrity boy!!!!!!!!! What the hell!!!! Kanti what kind of marriages do we have now!!! I have asked to see this video (sic).”
Phamotse said she has no regrets about going public about the video and revealed that associates of the female media mogul have contacted her, accusing her of getting involved in private matters.
“The friends of the associate, a couple if I could call them that, said to me it is not up to me to disclose what they do in their private space. And my response to that is that I stand for young people and when I see young people get exploited, I want to find solutions to their problems.
“Hence I spoke about it and introduced it to the public. They were trying to conceal the whole issue and trying to find out how much were we trying to negotiate for the video, if we want to negotiate before it gets to the media,” said Phamotse.
Phamotse added, “We need to talk about these social ills! Powerful men sleeping with desperate young stars! We can’t just keep quiet. It’s damaging our future men, Fathers & leaders! Guess how this young man will treat his girlfriend? The bitterness in him the pain and shame In the video he didn’t seem like he even want(ed) it.”
Offers have been made to Phamotse to release the video.
