Default UK Groid Grime star Andy Anokye, AKA Solo 45, raped women and filmed it


Grime star Andy Anokye, AKA Solo 45, raped women and filmed it, jury told

Musician denies wrongdoing, saying that intimacy was consensual

Updated13:54, 10 JAN 2019

A Bristol-based grime artiste raped several women and "filmed it for posterity", a court heard.

Andy Anokye, of Millennium Parade, is also known as Solo 45 and part of collective Boy Better Know.

The jury at Bristol Crown Court has heard the musician had a dark side in which he held women against their will and subjected them to humiliating sexual assaults.

Police found video footage capturing sexual scenes, which Anokye claims was consensual.

The 31-year-old denies 31 charges involving four women spanning 2015 to 2017.

Allegations comprise of: 22 rapes; five false imprisonments; two assault occasioning actual bodily harm and two assault by penetration.

Christopher Quinlan QC, prosecuting, said the woman were all aged in their 20s at the time of the attacks.

He said the first alleged victim, aged 26, met Anokye at a Skepta gig and he went on to abuse her.

Anokye also abused a 23-year-old, the court heard.

The third complainant, 25, met Anokye in a London bar and he went on to assault her physically and sexually.

The fourth complainant, 23, was also attacked by the defendant and she disclosed what he did to her - which led to a police inquiry.

Mr Quinlan described how Anokye "waterboarded" one woman by running water into her face.

There was evidence the rapper had searched online for dacryphilia, which is obtaining sexual arousal from anotherís fear, the court heard.

The jury was also told Anokye told one woman she may be shot, stabbed her and poured what she thought was bleach into her mouth.

Anokye also made her stand against a wall and he slapped her backside repeatedly, the court heard.

It is claimed he made her call him "n****r" and raped her several times after detaining her at his London flat.

The case continues.
