Another day, another influencer hitting the headlines.
Unfortunately, unlike yesterday’s where Jianhao Tan did something sweet by buying his wife a sweet car, today’s article isn’t for something good.
Now, before we get into the meat of things, do remember that these are allegations at the moment.
With that said and done, let’s begin.
This is Dee Kosh.
A part-time Singaporean radio deejay at Power 98 FM and a YouTuber who does rants, exposes and reactions to cringe-y TikTok videos.
However, over the weekend, he ran into some trouble.
According to Mothership.sg, an Instagram user, @_epaul took to his account to expose Dee Kosh (real name: Darryl Ian Koshy).
He claimed that two years ago, he was approached by Dee Kosh, who reportedly wanted him to join his YouTube channel.
However, the conversation allegedly turned inappropriate soon after and Dee Kosh had asked for nudes and sexual favours.
During this incident, @_epaul was only 17 years old.
He also accused Dee Kosh of trying to “cover his tracks” by using secret chats and deleting his own messages.
After the initial allegations, four more users have come forward on Instagram with similar encounters.
He had also allegedly offered money to minors in exchange for sexual favours.
Dee Kosh Denies The Allegations
When the allegations first surfaced online, Dee Kosh took to his own Instagram account to deny the allegations.
He stated in the same Instagram Story that he will be taking the “necessary steps” to “clear this up”.
On 16 Aug 2020, Dee Kosh sent a lawyer letter to @_epaul on the grounds of harassment and defamation.
On Leave From Radio Station, Law Firm Not Representing Dee Kosh Anymore
According to Coconuts Singapore, Dee Kosh is temporarily on leave from Power 98 FM.
The radio station simply said in their statement that it “does not tolerate any form of harassment”.
The law firm that was supposed to represent Dee Kosh in this case, DC Law firm, also reportedly told media outlets that they are no longer representing him in this case.
