In a statement, his family said: “Our lives have been changed forever. We are heartbroken, still in shock and angry.

“Nothing can ever prepare you for the loss of a child. It is very, very painful and no mother should ever have to go through this.

“Njavwa had a big heart and made friends so easily, sometimes not in the right circles, and was true to each and every one of them. He supported them, guided them and made them happy.

“Njavwa loved his brothers to bits and was an amazing father to his son.

“He was a free spirit who lived in the present and on his terms. He had big dreams, he was a leader, he had followers.

“He had the ability to enter a room and brighten it with his smile, his attitude, his infectious laugh or just his presence.

“Njavwa loved his rap music for which he was popularly known as ‘Swizzino’. He also had a passion for football and had continued to play for Great Notley Football Club.
