STORMZY’s official tour DJ was sacked last night after being accused of illegally charging artists to play their records.
DJ Tiiny, who has a primetime slot on Capital Xtra, allegedly offered to keep songs in his public playlist — boosting their chances of going viral — in exchange for a £200 bung.
The star, real name Frank Boakye-Yiadom, 24, was accused of running the racket since he joined the station in 2018.
In an email, shared with The Sun, Tiiny told budding musicians he would listen to their tracks and give feedback.
He wrote: “If you wish for the track to be premiered on my Friday night show, there would be a charge of £200 for one track.
“This would also include keeping the track within my radio playlist for two weeks.”
Last night, Capital Xtra had pulled his profile from their website.
Sources said parent firm Global was investigating and a fraud probe likely.
An insider said: “This has hit everyone for six. The fear is it has gone on for a long time. Stormzy is stunned. He and Tiiny are close.”
Global refused to publicly comment.
Tiiny did not respond to requests to talk.
