Rapper 21 Savage has paid tribute to his brother, Terrell Davis, after he was ‘fatally stabbed’ in London on Sunday evening.

Davis, 27, who is a drill artist and performs under the name TM1way, was killed on Sunday night in Brixton following an altercation with another man.

According to reports, 21 Savage (real name Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph), who was born in east London before emigrating to the US as a child, shares the same father as Davis.

Uploading an image of the pair as young boys, as well as one of Davis on his own, Abraham-Joseph reacted to the news on social media this week.

He wrote in the caption, disabling comments: ‘Can’t believe somebody took you baby bro I know I took my anger out on you I wish I could take that sh*t back.’

In a statement, Met Police said of the incident: ‘Police are investigating a fatal stabbing after they were called at 17:59hrs on Sunday 22 November by the London Ambulance Service to a location in Ramillies Close, Lambeth, SW2.

‘Officers attended, along with colleagues from the London Air Ambulance, but the 27-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene.

‘The man’s next of kin have been informed and they are being supported by specially trained officers.

‘No arrests have been made at this stage.’

According to Mail Online, Davis was bringing shopping to his grandmother, who lived in the area, when the incident occured.

The source said: ‘Terrell was a good guy, he used to live on the estate but had moved away.

‘But he was round visiting his grandmother yesterday and had gone to the shops for her as she’s elderly and we are in the middle of a pandemic.’

They added: ‘He was really good rapper and was on the verge of doing big things. He wanted to be like his brother. Everyone is in shock.’

It was revealed last year Abraham-Joseph was actually a UK citizen after he was arrested by US immigration officers, due to his visa having expired in 2006.

Later it was claimed the Runnin’ rapper was first brought to the US by his mother when he was seven years old.

Spokesperson Brian Cox said at the time: ‘U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested unlawfully present United Kingdom national Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph AKA ‘21 Savage’ during a targeted operation with federal and local law enforcement partners early Sunday in metro Atlanta.’

His attorney Dina LaPolt told TMZ: ‘Mr Abraham-Joseph is a role model to the young people in the country — especially in Atlanta, Georgia and is actively working in the community leading programs to help underprivileged youths in financial literacy.’
