DJ TIM Westwood was quizzed by his radio bosses over his links to drill music.
Chiefs at Global Radio — owner of Capital Xtra — contacted him as he holidayed in Cape Verde, off the coast of Africa
They also went back through his Saturday night shows to ensure he had not played the gang-related music on the station.
The company stood by the DJ, insisting he had not broken any broadcasting guidelines.
A spokesman said: “Drill music has never formed part of the playlist for any of the Global brands.”
A Capital Xtra source said: “There have been lots of checks but Westwood hasn’t played any of this music on Capital Xtra.
