Jamal Edwards died from heart attack caused by taking recreational drugs

Jamal Edwards died from a heart attack after taking drugs following a night DJing, his mother Brenda Edwards has confirmed.

The SBTV founder died in February this year at the age of 31. At the time, Loose Women’s Brenda shared he passed following a ‘sudden illness’.

She has since discovered that Edwards’ death was triggered after using drugs and has warned of the dangers of ‘extremely unpredictable’ substances.

‘Since I last spoke, I have sadly learned that the cause of Jamal’s devastating passing was due to cardiac arrythmia caused by having taken recreational drugs and I wanted to address this myself to everyone who loved, admired and respected my son,’ she said in a statement.


Brenda admitted she has been in a state of shock since finding out the news and is still trying to process it.

‘Jamal had the world at his fingertips – a zest for life and he was unwittingly taken away far too soon,’ she continued.

‘Yet we have to come to terms with what happened, and Jamal is proof that this can happen to anyone.

‘These types of substances are extremely unpredictable, and we can only hope that this will encourage others to think wisely when faced with similar situations in the future. His passing has shown that any one bad decision on any one occasion can lead to devastating consequences.’

This is a breaking story. More to follow.
