The name of Jamal Edwards’ girlfriend has yet to be released on social media or the internet.
Despite claims to the contrary on the internet, he is not believed to have been dating anyone at the time of his death. Edwards had never been married or had any children in his life.

Edwards was born in the English town of Luton and spent his childhood there before relocating to Acton, West London, with his mother Brenda Edwards, stepfather Patrick, and younger sister Tanisha. Edwards’ ancestors are from the Caribbean island of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. His mother, who placed fourth in the second series of The X Factor in 2005, introduced him to stage school when he was a toddler.
He intended to be successful in the music industry, despite his mother’s wishes for him to pursue acting and drama. He went to Acton High School, where he excelled in ICT and music. However, he struggled to get the grades he needed for college and had to study for an additional year as a result. After that, he went to Ealing High School.
He earned a BTEC qualification in Media Moving Image from Green College, which is part of West London College. During his high school years, he began rapping and making videos with his classmates, which he then uploaded to YouTube. These videos would eventually turn into a business for him and the start of SBTV. Edwards supported himself financially by working for Topman for four years while running SBTV.
Edwards announced a three-part campaign with the Department of Education in 2020 to encourage young creatives to consider doing an apprenticeship. P Money, a grime MC, was involved in the collaboration.
In 2021, Jamal appeared on ITV’s Loose Women with his mother, Brenda Edwards, to discuss “How He Built a Multi-Million Pound Business & How His Mum Brenda Inspired Him.”
Edwards died on February 20, 2022, at the age of 31, at his mother’s home in Acton, London, of a heart arrhythmia triggered by recreational drugs. Friends had earlier reported that a heart attack was the cause of death. He had been DJing at a gig in north London the day before. After his death was confirmed, celebrities and other figures sent messages in response. Lady Leshurr, who also worked on SBTV with Edwards, described the news as “heartbreaking” and that Edwards “offered her opportunity after opportunity to exhibit her skills from Brum into London.” We must preserve his name and brand.”
The Prince’s Trust, of which Edwards was an ambassador, was founded by Charles, Prince of Wales, who wrote: “His work in music but also as an ambassador for a new generation, particularly his work for The Prince’s Trust, were an inspiration to so many.”
