Former BBC DJ Tim Westwood is set to perform at a gala party next week despite battling allegations he had sex with a 14-year-old girl.

Westwood, 65, will appear at a concert for The Beat 99.9 FM in Lagos, Nigeria, where he will be joined by British rapper Teun Wayne.

The former Radio 1 DJ is mired in allegations of abuse of 10 women during his prolific career in the music industry, The Sun reports.

Understandably, none of these women reported their allegations to the police, while Westwood vigorously maintains his innocence.

DJ Tim Westwood, who left the BBC in 2013 after nearly two decades, also quit his show on Capital Xtra in April after initial allegations surfaced.

The ceremony is taking place at the Balmoral Convention Center on Lagos’ Victoria Island on Tuesday, with tickets touted at £20 per person.

One man tweeted: ‘Promoters booked Tim Westwood to DJ in Nigeria this weekend, you guys have no shame.

“All the allegations against him are specifically about young black girls and you pay him money to come to Nigeria??”

Another person added: “Not the first time either. It was on my flight back from Lagos to London in July 2022…”

In July, the BBC said it had received six complaints against Westwood, including one which had been referred to the police, although managing director Tim Davey had previously said he had seen “no evidence of complaints”.

Mr Davey launched an internal audit, reporting to the BBC Board’s Senior Independent Director, Sir Nicholas Serota.

The independent investigation, announced in August, is due to be completed within six months, and the BBC has said it is ready to work with Westwood's other employers.

A statement from Westwood’s representative in April said: “Tim Westwood vigorously denies all allegations of inappropriate behavior.

In a career spanning 40 years, no complaint has been filed against him, formally or informally.

Tim Westwood firmly denies all allegations of wrongdoing.

The DJ, who is the son of Bill Westwood, the former Anglican Bishop of Peterborough – who died in 1999 – began his career in local radio before joining Capital Radio in London.

Later he was given his own show by BBC Radio 1.

He left Radio 1 and Radio 1Xtra in 2013 after nearly 20 years and returned to Capital Xtra to present a regular show on Saturday nights, where he was referred to as “The Big Dawg”.

He quit his Capital Xtra show in April, when the allegations came to light.
