Below: The groom accused of statutory rape
OPW landed in hot water after an episode featuring Fanie and Bavelile Mkhwanazi was accused of ‘perpetuating rape’.
During the episode, Fanie openly bragged about seducing Bavelile when he was 28 and she was 14. He boasted that as a taxi-driver, he would sleep with many underage girls, but ultimately Bavelile “won his heart”.
The episode garnered loads of criticism, in addition to a number of sponsors withdrawing from the reality show. OPW producers later released a statement defending the episode and claiming that the show was depicting ‘real-life scenarios’.
