After Stefflon Don brother grooming allegations a few years back, 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 for a different reason a few years back.
He was accused of grooming a 14-year-old girl on Instagram, a claim that he denies and calls “fake news”.
Here is what we know so far about the allegations and how they have affected Stefflon Don and her career.
Stefflon Don Brother Grooming Allegations: 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 were leaked online.
The messages showed him asking for her age, complimenting her appearance, and inviting her to his hotel room.
The girl claimed that she told him she was 14, but he continued to message her and even sent her a voice note.
Dutchavelli denied the allegations and said that his Instagram account was hacked. He also said that the girl was lying about her age and that she was actually 17.
He said that he never met her in person and that he only messaged her because she was a fan of his music.
He said that police visited the girl’s home because her address had been posted online and they had a “duty of care”. He also denied paying off the girl’s family, as some people suggested online.

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.

Stefflon Don, whose real name is Stephanie Allen, has not publicly commented on the allegations against her brother.
However, she has faced some criticism for her silence and for continuing to support him.
She has also been involved in another controversy in 2024 when she released a song that featured lyrics that some people found offensive and insensitive.
In the latest rap feud to grip the music world, the British rapper Don and Jamaican artist Jada Kingdom are at the heart of a fiery controversy.
Stefflon’s revamped track “Dat A Dat,” alluded to a woman named “Twinki,” hinting at Jada Kingdom’s rumored involvement with her ex, Burna Boy.
Kingdom’s swift response was “London Bed,” where she not only tackled Stefflon’s relationship with Burna Boy but also threw shade at the British rapper’s alleged cosmetic surgery mishap.
Burna Boy, a Grammy-winning Nigerian artist, finds himself inadvertently embroiled in this clash between his former flame Stefflon and the American-Jamaican singer Jada.
Despite the drama, Jada Kingdom maintains she has no romantic interest in Burna Boy, emphasizing her relationship with Pardison Fontaine.
The saga underscores the complexities of fame, relationships, and the ever-evolving landscape of the music industry.
