I think you have to wipe data from mediascanner, reboot and just wait 'til it has rescanned everything on your device. Worked for me

Look in sdcard
Then android and obb
Basically
/Sdcard/android/obb
There will be a golder inside it which will be related to games u have downloaded
Only large files are in this folder hence there is a big chance that only the ashphalt 8 file is on it but be careful if u delete wrong folder u might have to redownload data for another game
