Jamal Edwards’ cause of death has been confirmed and his mum, Brenda, has paid tribute to her ‘beautiful and selfless’ son.
The influential DJ and entrepreneur passed away in February and an inquest has established that he died due to a cardiac arrest after a mixture of alcohol and cocaine.
His mum, who is a regular host on Loose Women, said: “Jamal was a beautiful and selfless person.”

She added: “Since growing up with his family in Acton he made it his personal mission to open doors for others to walk through.
“To help people through life, to love and to laugh. And most importantly, to just make people happy.
“Jamal helped so many, working tirelessly to give a platform to people.”
Edwards then praised her son’s charity work, saying: “His charitable work stretched near and far, from working at homeless shelters to giving back to his roots in St Vincent and the Grenadines.
“We are so proud of everything Jamal achieved over the course of his 31 years and how he impacted others’ lives. We miss him so much.”
Jamal Edwards was known for being the founder of SBTV, a web-based content page that helped launch and support the careers of some of Britain’s biggest stars, including Ed Sheeran, Example, Stormzy, and Dizzee Rascal.
The channel’s initial content was only ‘grime’ based, however, over time it branched into other music genres and helped establish artists such as Emeli Sandé and Jessie J.
He was awarded an MBE back in 2015 for his work in the music industry.
Edwards was also an ambassador for the Prince’s Trust, a youth charity that helps and encourages young people to set up their own businesses.
