Nine others were also charged with violent disorder, and nobody has been charged with murder.

Salieu, whose full name is Pa Salieu Gaye, is signed with Warner Records and was last month nominated in the BRIT Awards’ rising star category. 

Last night he took to Instagram to say he was ‘engaging with the justice system’    

He 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 Glasow (AP) was taken from us well before his time.’

He said he is ‘engaging with the justice system’, adding: ‘Please be sensitive to the fact that a real family like yours has lost a loved one. RIP AP.’

Salieu shared the message alongside a photo which appeared to show him with Mr Glasgow.

Mr Glasgow died in hospital after being stabbed outside Club M in the early hours of September 1, 2018.

Mr Glasgow’s grandfather Neville, who was the front man of the 1970s ska band The Specials, later appealed for witnesses to come forward with information. 

No one has yet been charged with Mr Glasgow’s murder, despite a lengthy inquiry by West Midlands Police, including appeals for information about suspects recorded on CCTV at the scene.   

In a statement issued on Thursday, West Midlands Police said the Crown Prosecution Service has authorised charges against 10 men, including for wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm to the 23-year-old, violent disorder and possession of offensive weapons.

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.’
