British-Ghanaian rapper, Solo 45, has been sentenced to 24 years in prison for repeatedly raping and assaulting four women.

The 33-year-old was convicted of 21 rapes, five counts of false imprisonment, two counts of assault by penetration and two of assault occasioning actual bodily harm by a court.

He was declared guilty at Bristol Crown Court of 30 charges relating to a two-year period from February 2015 to March 2017.

Police began investigating Anokye in 2017 after one of his victims reported to friends and police that she had been raped. After his arrest, officers discovered harrowing footage filmed by Anokye on his mobile phone, and this led police to three other women.

It was learnt that the rapper met these victims at his gigs and started relationships with them before assaulting them.

Some of his victims who testified against him explained some of the tortures he put them through

“He kept me on the bed and put a flannel over my face and poured a bottle of water over it, which made me feel like I was drowning.”

Another said she was stabbed in the thigh and held at knifepoint. He forced one of his victims to lie in a bath of freezing cold water, and also made another woman sit with a bottle of water tied to her finger with a shoelace.

However, Anokye told the court that all the acts were consensual roles played by the victims in a game called “catch me, rape me”. Anokye also told the court he had dacryphilia – sexual arousal from tears.

Passing judgement, Judge William Hart directed that Anokye will serve 24 years in prison and five on licence. The judge also ordered him to compulsorily sign the sex offenders register for life.

“You have no sexual boundaries or empathy for those concerned, you became addicted to the ‘perverted pleasure’ from abusing the women in the case.

“You have a background that includes gang associations and criminal violence.

“I’m entirely satisfied that your career as a music artist was flourishing at the time of this offending and that you would have gone to great heights.

“You were part of a well-known collective – Boy Better Know. The fellow artists from that collective have achieved great success,” the judge held.

The judge added that his convictions have deprived him of his music career but the fault is entirely his alone.


  1. This is issue of raping is all over everywhere, celebrity also rape, nawa oooo. Even he deserves more than that in order to serve as deterrent.

  2. He derives pleasure and arousal when his partner is crying and shadding tears. That is true. Some men are like that. I once managed a Hotel and there is this clients that comes in to sleep with his lady friend. Everytime he is having fun with the man, the lady will be crying profusely in high pitch voice. Sometimes i will send one of the stewards to go check if all is well in that room but they always tell me the man said thats their way of catching fun. When they are done, they will come to the bar to have drink and you could hardly believe that that same lady was the one crying in Room 05 moments ago as she happily lean on her man, dotting and adoring him. Some people are animals honestly
