Jamal Edwards sadly passed away on February 20 2022 leaving his friends and family – including his Loose Women star mother Brenda – devastated.
An inquest in August that year revealed died from a cardiac arrest after a late night cocaine and drinking session.
On the night he became paranoid and began throwing objects around the room before falling unconscious.
Three small snap bags containing the remnants of white powder were found on the 31-year-old after he collapsed at his west London home.
At the inquest assistant West London Coroner Ivor Collett ruled that Jamal died after a cardiac arrest brought on by taking cocaine and drinking alcohol.
Jamal was close friends with the singer Ed Sheeran who spoke about the grief he felt at his loss on his Disney+ documentary which was released on Wednesday.
His heartbroken mother, Brenda, described him as ‘a beautiful and selfless person’ in a statement read to the inquest.
Earlier that year she said she wanted his death to ‘help drive more conversation about the unpredictability of recreational drugs’.
The DJ and founder of online R&B/Hip-Hop platform SB.TV had returned to his home in Acton after 4am after playing a set in north London before he sat up drinking with a friend, Nick Hopper, who was living in an annex of the house.
Mr Hopper said that ‘he appeared to be his normal self’ and they ‘began to chat, smoke some weed and drink’ – but his famous friend then spoke about the pressure he was under.
After a while Mr Edwards became erratic and paranoid and began throwing objects around the room before collapsing, the inquest was told.
Despite the best efforts of Mr Hopper and later his uncle, Rodney Artman, as well as paramedics, Mr Edwards did not wake up and was declared dead at 10.36am on Sunday February 20.
