Johannesburg – After releasing the artwork for his latest single What A Night, DJ Dimplez was criticised by fans on social media, with many pointing out the cover art delivered a negative message. 

The picture sees DJ Dimplez in an ally with a lady slumped over and hanging onto his shoulder while holding a bottle of alcohol.

After realising that the artwork could be sending the wrong message, Dimplez apologised on Twitter. 

“It’s been brought to my attention and realisation that the supporting art work calls to mind rapists’ stereotypes (sic),” the DJ wrote adding that the artwork was immediately removed from the single’s listing. 

“I sincerely apologise to anyone who was offended by the art work. With artwork, my intention was to never promote the senseless rape culture not that of taking advantage of women (sic),” he went on to say.
