Following the allegations of grooming Stefflon Don’s brother a few years ago, the rapper is making headlines for yet another controversy.
Stefflon Don, the British rapper and singer of Jamaican descent, has been in the spotlight for her music and her relationship with Nigerian star Burna Boy.
However, her brother, also a rapper known as Dutchavelli, made headlines a few years ago for a different reason.
He was accused of grooming a 14-year-old girl on Instagram, a claim he denies and calls “fake news.”
Here’s what we know so far about the allegations and how they’ve affected Stefflon Don and her career.
Stefflon Don Brother Grooming Accusations: What Did Dutchavelli Do?
The allegations against Dutchavelli, whose real name is Stephan Allen, surfaced in November 2020 when screenshots of his alleged messages to a 14-year-old girl leaked online.
The messages showed him asking her age, complimenting her appearance and inviting her to his hotel room.
The girl claimed she told him she was fourteen, but he continued to message her and even sent her a voice message.
Dutchavelli denied the allegations and said his Instagram account had been hacked. He also said that the girl lied about her age and that she was actually 17.
He said he never met her in person and that he only messaged her because she was a fan of his music.
He said police attended the girl’s home because her address was online and they had a “duty of care”. He also denied paying the girl’s family, as some people online suggested.

Some of his fellow rappers, such as Tion Wayne and Stormzy, also distanced themselves from him and unfollowed him on Instagram.
Dutchavelli’s music was also removed from some playlists on Spotify and YouTube.
