The rapper’s former partner, known simply as Hana, released a statement last November alleging she suffered physical assault from the rapper and shared footage of one of the alleged incidents.

She claimed that Octavian attacked her with a hammer and screwdriver, pressured her to have an abortion and threatened to kill her.

The claims were made public the day before the release of Octavian’s debut album Alpha, which was later dropped from the release before being dropped by their record label Black Butter.

Announcing his retirement on Instagram on Monday (October 18), Octavian wrote: “Leaving music. All this negativity is coming to an end. It doesn’t matter if there is an innocent in my city or not. not in a good place.

“Thank you to all who kept me mentally stable, thank you all for your love. thank you for your patience. forever grateful. Going away for now. will see you soon.”

While Octavian, full name Octavian Oliver Godzie, has denied the claims, Hana alleges that the rapper’s lawyer asked her to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) in exchange for her silence.

In January of this year, two months after the allegations first surfaced, the rapper’s ex-girlfriend claimed she was offered £20,000 to keep quiet about the abuse allegations made by her.

“They were offering me £20,000 to never speak about what happened in our relationship,” she claims in the new bbc three documentary Music’s Dirty Secrets: Women Fight Back.

“Never tell a publication, never tell any family, never tell a friend, never say anything bad about Octavian or his career, or really anything. All photos, Remove all evidence, all videos. Just act as if I never existed.”

in a statement to BBC At the time, Octavian said: “I completely deny Hana’s allegations, which are only one – the completely distorted side of a tumultuous relationship.

“Most of what she has said, and what is reported, has been manipulated or simply untrue. I will not go on trial by the media, but I will reiterate that I have not been violent or coerced towards Hana. , and I am not a misogynist.
