A talented and fast-rising UK-based Nigerian rapper has been stabbed to death when a 16th birthday party mobbed by hundreds of teenagers ‘got out of control’
The 15-year-old Nigerian boy identified as Jordan Gbolade Jaiyeola, has been stabbed to death when a mass brawl broke out as around 200 teenagers were leaving a 16th birthday party at a community centre in the United Kingdom.
According to Dailymail UK, the teenage schoolboy popularly known as Jordan Douherty, was knifed after a large group of youths were turned away from the party because the venue was at full capacity.
It was gathered that friends of the deceased were heard screaming and crying, ‘They’ve killed my best friend’, after the boy collapsed around 9pm on Saturday.
While speaking to a correspondent, a local resident who gave her name only as Ellie said: ‘There were two or three boys screaming, ‘He’s not moving, he’s dead.’
‘There was a big group on the corner with just the boy on the floor. There were paramedics doing shocks and CPR on him for quite a while. After he was just lying there with a white sheet over him, it was covered in blood.’
Another neighbour, who gave her name only as Carol, said: ‘It was chaos out here. Around 9.20pm I heard a lot of noise going on. For some reason it didn’t sound right.
‘Then I heard a lad crying down the phone ‘he’s dead, he’s dead’. He was laying down in the road, there was a lot of blood.
‘The police were working on him, they tried their absolute damnedest with that boy last night. Nobody should die like that.’
Police and paramedics arrived to find up to 200 teenagers running and screaming in panic as the 15-year-old lay in the street in Romford, East London.
Jordan is believed to have featured in a number of YouTube videos of drill rap music, a hip-hop subgenre that is said to be driving the feuding gang war in London.
He performs with the group C17 under the name Young Valenti – while his older brother Roland performs as Valenti.
