Hypo dead – Rapper ex of Emeli Sandé stabbed to death during fight at party after 'trivial row' as murder probe launched

A RAP star former boyfriend of Emeli Sandé was stabbed to death in the early hours of this morning at a music party.

Singer Hypo was knifed in the heart following a trivial row at the ticketed party held in a large marquee area in Woodford Green, East London.


Detectives launched a murder inquiry following the fatal stabbing of 39-year-old Hypo – real name Lamar Jackson – just after midnight.

The dreadlocked musician was a leading light in the East London-based Mashtown collective of rappers and credited with being a major influence on Britain's rap scene.

He dated Scottish star Emeli for a year before they split up in 2017, but the couple are said to have remained on friendly terms.

Friends said Hypo had recently become engaged to a new partner, with whom he had a child a year ago.

A post-mortem examination will be held in due course to confirm the cause of death.
