DJ Milkshake: "Blow the whistle on abuse"

2015-02-20 07:00

DJ Milkshake is one of 35 celebrities who bared it all for this month's Marie Claire Naked issue.

The highly-anticipated mag, which hit shelves earlier this week, saw the likes of Pearl Thusi, Masasa Mbangeni, Amalia Uys and Lira strip down to raise awareness about sexual violence. 

The annual campaign is in support of Whistle SA, which is an establishment that empowers women to speak out against rape and sexual abuse.

Award- winning singer Lira is this year's cover star and she looks incredible!

5FM radio personality DJ Milkshake opened up to Marie Claire about why he decided to join the fight. "I am taking a stand and urging men across all cultural, religious as well as economic divides, to blow the whistle on violent abuse against women and children," he explained.

The DJ added that too often domestic violence is considered as a private affair and that this attitude needs to be changed. DJ Milkshake explained that stricter laws alone isn't enough to stop women and child abuse.

"Domestic violence is a complex issue that affects every one of us. It can involve alcohol and drug abuse, juvenile delinquency, adult criminal conduct, poverty, and homelessness. And it can be found anywhere – the inner city, suburbs and rural areas all over the world," he added.

So you too can join DJ Milkshake and other celebs by taking a stand against abuse! [post-slider]
