Charlie Sloth leaves 1Xtra!
After almost 10 years presenting for the BBC, Sloth is responsible for some of the hardest breakthrough’s in UK.
With a list of accolades, guest appearances and above all the numerous times he brought iconic MC’s to the acclaimed show ‘Fire In The Booth’ Sloth has always shown love for the culture and has definitely made his mark.
From pirate radio to receiving “Most Original Video” award at Canada’s CraveFest Sloth grew rapidly. Picking up attention from major platforms like WorldStarHipHop with shows like “Being Charlie Sloth” (2007) which ran for 58 episodes and was watched by millions online.
Sloths record label ‘Grimey Limey‘ and the surrounding shows he was apart of are highly responsible for the growth of many UK artist.
As of November 2017, Sloth appeared on five radio shows a week for the BBC. In that time helping other artist come through Sloth also produced on several albums with tracks like “Of Course” by Giggs ft Rico Love, taken from Giggs‘ fourth album, Landlord plus many other features Sloth has shown a constant grind for success.
“Branding Is Everything”
Sloth highlights key moments in his life. From living in a garden shed to being broke with no option other than renting his property to survive. Story’s like this capture the real commitment he has and shows how achieving goals will result in greater things.
With that, the highly popular ‘Fire In The Booth’ is leaving with him. Apparently Sloth owns the right to the FITB franchise and the current operations are licences to the BBC.
Sloth said: “Ten of the best years of my life, I want to say a huge thank you to everybody who has listened to me over the years and supported me in everything I have done, I love you, and the journey continues. I joined the BBC as a boy and I leave as a man.”

Big Zuu joins the 1Xtra team!
Just 1 day after the leave of Charlie Sloth, BBC Radio 1Xtra announced their latest team arrival. Big Zuu joined by DJ Tash LC, Nadia Jae & Moses Boyd, together will present a brand new show on BBC’s 1Xtra platform. Interviews, sets and hopefully a new spin on the long lost Joints Show, Big Zuu is certainly ideal for his new role.
Due to Sloth announcing the leave himself it seems like he had greater ambitions and knew the time would come for a new presenter to fill his role.
