Danny Brown accuses Die Antwoord’s Ninja of sexual assault

Brown alleges that Ninja got ‘too aggressive’ with him in a Paris nightclub

American rapper Danny Brown has accused Ninja, one half of South African duo Die Antwoord, of sexually assaulting him at a nightclub in Paris.

Speaking on the 2 Bears 1 Cave podcast, Brown said he was on a night out when Ninja sat on his lap and began to kiss him. “It freaked me out,” Brown said.

He went on to imply that Ninja suggested that they should have a threesome with Yolandi, the other half of Die Antwoord. “I was a single, experimenting man at the time,” Brown said. “But he was too aggressive. He sat on my lap and started trying to kiss me and shit, and doing weird shit.”

“Ninja tried to fuck me,” he continued. “I was scared. Fuck them, though! Fuck them [...] I was sexually assaulted by Ninja.”

Brown went on to claim that Ninja wanted to know what hotel he was staying at and when refused to tell him, Ninja responded “Don’t worry, I’ll find you.”

This isn’t the first time Ninja has been accused of sexual misconduct. In 2019, Australian musician Zheani Sparkes released a diss track titled “The Question,” in which she alleged that Ninja sexually assaulted her in 2013. She went on to file a police report six months later. American singer Dionna Dal Monte also alleges that Ninja assaulted her in Italy in 2014. Ninja has repeatedly denied these allegations.

Last year, the duo were also dropped from some festivals after they were filmed shouting homophobic slurs.
