I think you have to wipe data from mediascanner, reboot and just wait 'til it has rescanned everything on your device. Worked for me
Devices:
Xperia Ray (587)
Electric Circuit Fried
UHD-ROM
Locked Bootloader
CWM-Recovery (Xparts)


Xperia SP (205)
Existenz Ultra 4.0.0
Locked Bootloader
3-way recoveries


Hit Thanks if I helped you

if that also doesn't work, check /sdcard or /data for files that big and delete it

DONATE TO 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
