Solo 45, a member of the U.K. grime collective Boy Better Know that was founded by Skepta and JME (and that “signed” Drake last year), has been charged with 29 counts of rape, according to authorities.

In July, Solo 45 (birth name Andy Anokye) was charged with two counts of rape along with one count each of false imprisonment and of causing actual bodily harm. He later pleaded not guilty to all four charges against him.

The rapper’s trial began on Wednesday (October 18), but police have revealed that three more alleged victims have come forward causing them to charge the 31-year-old with 27 more counts of rape – bringing his total to 29.

His trial has now been adjourned until April 16 of 2018.

Solo 45 is best known for his 2015 track, “Feed Em To the Lions.” Earlier this year, he collaborated with BET Award-winner Stormzy on “5ive.”

After news of Solo 45’s multiple charges broke online, JME took to Twitter to offer his own reaction.
