Jamal Edwards cause of death revealed by mother Brenda Edwards

Brenda Edwards has urged for more conversation on recreation drugs as she learned that her son died due to “cardiac arrhythmia caused by having taken recreational drugs”.

The music entrepreneur died in February this year at the age of 31.

Edwards thanked everyone for the support the family had received following Jamal’s death, saying: “We have been so incredibly touched by the outpouring of love and support, and you are all helping us try and get through the unimaginable.”

She went on: “Since I last spoke, I have sadly learned that the cause of Jamal’s devastating passing was due to cardiac arrhythmia caused by having taken recreational drugs and I wanted to address this myself to everyone who loved, admired and respected my son.

“Since finding out the news I’ve been in a state of shock, and I’m still trying to process it, but it’s so important to me that I do address it as no mother or any loved one should have to go through what Jamal’s sister, Tanisha, and I have been through since he passed.”

She described her son as having had the “world at his fingertips – a zest for life and he was unwittingly taken away far too soon”.

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