MUSIC mogul Jamal Edwards tragically left no money behind in his will despite amassing an estimated £8m fortune throughout his career.

The Brit superstar, credited with boosting the careers of Ed Sheeran and Rita Ora, died with an estate worth £0.



His step-dad Patrick Edwards and aunt Tracey Parry were listed as executors.

But along with his Loose Women star mum Brenda Edwards, they were left nothing.

The gross value of his estate was £45,502.76 at the time of his death but this plummeted to nothing as the net amount.

Brenda was listed as a beneficiary of the will, alongside his sister Tanisha Artman, aunt Deborah Todd and friend William McCarthy.

She said: "I miss Jamal so much. I know there's probably people here that knew him. It still doesn't feel real to me. He was a good friend of mine."

SBTV was a launching pad for artists to become superstar singers.

Jamal was awarded an MBE in 2015 for services to music.

Shortly after his death, his step-dad Patrick, 58, was appointed as director for all four of Jamal’s active businesses, Companies House documents show.

These include Just Jam Recordings Ltd, Freeman Music Group Ltd, JE Global Enterprises Ltd and SBTV Global Ltd.

An inquest in August confirmed cocaine toxicity in Jamal’s body when he died.

The cause of death was listed as cardiac arrhythmia following cocaine use and the coroner concluded the cause of death was drug-related.

On February 21 this year, Brenda, 53, confirmed his death in a statement.
