23-YEAR-old rapper, Saddique Kamara, was pronounced dead in Camberwell, south London, after he was found sustaining stab wounds alongside two other men (aged 16 and 31). The later were taken to south London hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Kamara, who was also known as Incognito, died on the same street as his friend Rhyhiem Ainsworth Barton was shot in May.

Both men were members of the drill music group Moscow17.

The music genre has been heavily criticised for inciting violence and has seen many videos being removed from YouTube.

A spokesperson for the MPS said that “Detectives from the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command are leading the investigation and are appealing for witnesses and information”.

Detective Chief Inspector Richard Leonard, who is leading the investigation, said: “Another young man has tragically and needlessly lost his life through an act of violence. “

“We are keeping an open mind about the possible motive for this attack, but at this early stage one line of enquiry is this being gang-related.

“I’d like to reassure the community that we have made two arrests and we are working around the clock to establish what happened and bring those responsible to justice.

“However, we cannot do this alone and I’d appeal to any witnesses or anyone with information to get in touch with us as a matter of urgency. Any information, however insignificant you think it is, is vital to our investigation. Any information provided will be treated in the strictest confidence.”

Kamara's death comes just months after he was cleared of murdering 17-year-old Abdirahman Mohamed in January.

Mr Mohamed died after being stabbed with a samurai sword in Peckham, south east London, last June.
