Rapper Slowthai appeared in a UK court on Tuesday May 16 charged with two counts of rape.

The 28-year-old, whose real name is Tyron Kaymone Frampton, was charged with two counts of rape in connection to an incident in Cambridge dating back to September 2021.

The grammy nominated artist appeared before Oxfordshire Magistrates Court via a video link from his home in Northampton.

In a statement released via social media he denied any wrongdoing.

“Regarding the allegations being reported about me,” his post said.

“I categorically deny the charges. I am innocent and confident my name will be cleared. Until then I will apply my energy to ensure this is concluded swiftly and justly,”

He added: “I ask that my supporters don’t comment about this situation and respect the process and privacy of my family during this time.”

Currently out on bail, he is set to appear before Oxford Crown Court next month.
