Musician Pa Salieu says he is ‘engaging with police’ as they continue to investigate the death of his friend Fidel Glasgow. 

The rapper, who was nominated for the Rising Star accolade at this year’s Brit Awards, released a statement on Thursday amid reports that police investigating the incident had made arrests. 

Glasgow, the grandson of Specials singer Neville Staple, died in hospital after being stabbed outside Coventry’s Club M during a mass brawl in 2018. A 23-year-old man suffering stab wounds.

In his statement shared on social media, Mr Salieu – real name Pa Gaye – said: ‘Due to ongoing investigations, I am unable to comment on the detail surrounding the fateful events that occurred back in September 2018. 

‘Sadly, my close friend Fidel Glasgow (AP) was taken from us well before his time. 

‘I am engaging with the justice system but wish to make it clear that I have not been charged with harming my friend AP in any way.’ 

He continued: ‘Please be sensitive to the fact that a real family like yours has lost a loved one. RIP AP. 

‘Thank you for your continued support in this difficult time. Pa.’ 

Police have confirmed that a number of men, including Mr Salieu, had been charged with wounding with intent, violent disorder and possession of an offensive weapon. 

However, no one has yet been charged with Mr Glasgow’s murder. 

In a statement, West Midlands Police said the Crown Prosecution Service had authorised the charges of a total of 10 men. 

Detective Inspector Michelle Allen, from the force’s homicide unit, said: ‘We are still actively investigating Fidel’s murder and these charges are a significant step forward in our search for his killer. 

‘Fidel’s family have been fully updated with these latest developments and we remain in close contact with them.

‘We continue to ask anyone with information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, to come forward.’
