Slowthai says he didn’t commit rape


Slowthai has stated that he is not guilty of two charges of rape, which are related to an incident in September 2021.

The 28-year-old musician made his plea in a British court on June 15.

Slowthai, whose real name is Tyron Frampton, was charged last month with engaging in oral and vaginal penetration without the woman’s consent.

Another individual, Alex Blake-Walker, who is also involved in the case, pleaded not guilty to one count of rape and two counts of sexual assault.

Both men face accusations of raping one woman, with Blake-Walker also facing an accusation of sexually assaulting another woman.

Following their appearance at Oxford Crown Court, both men were released on conditional bail until their trial commences in July 2024.

During the previous court hearing, which took place via video link before Oxfordshire magistrates court, Slowthai confirmed his personal details but did not enter a plea.

Prosecuting lawyer Adam Yar Khan stated that the rape charge must be handled at the crown court due to its classification as an indictable-only offense.

Slowthai gained recognition in the music industry with his 2019 album “Nothing About Great Britain,” which was nominated for the Mercury Prize and reached the top 10 in the UK charts.

In 2020, he received the “hero of the year” award at the NME Awards, although the event was marred by an incident involving host Katherine Ryan and audience members. Slowthai later expressed remorse for his actions on social media.

His popularity continued to rise, with his second album “Tyron” reaching number one on the Official UK Albums Chart in 2021, and earning a Grammy Award nomination for dance recording the same year. His album “Ugly” reached number two in early 2023.

When the rape allegations became public, Slowthai was removed from the lineups of several UK summer festivals, including Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, as well as Australia’s Splendour In The Grass. He also canceled a concert at Wembley Stadium with Blur, scheduled for July 8.
