SB.TV Founder Jamal Edwards Was Penniless, Died With An Estate Worth $0

Music mogul Jamal Edwards – once seen as the most powerful music executive in the UK – tragically left no money behind in his will despite amassing an estimated $15M fortune throughout his career.

The British born producer/manager and creator of the popular urban multimedia platform SBTV is credited with boosting the careers of Ed Sheeran and Rita Ora, died with an estate worth $0.

Actually, the gross value of his estate was about $65,000 at the time of his death. But after legal fees and expenses, this plummeted to zero as the net amount.

Jamal’s mother Brenda was listed as a beneficiary of the will, along with his sister Tanisha Artman, aunt Deborah Todd and friend William McCarthy.

Jamal died at age 31 in February this year, from an apparent drug overdose. He wrote his will in February 2020. Jamal began SBTV as a YouTube channel in 2006 where he recorded friends performing on the estate where he lived in Acton, West London.

By 2014, he had amassed an estimated fortune of approximately $10 million from working with artists like Ed Sheeran, Rita Ora, and Stormzy among others.

SB.Tv is a British music media company founded by Jamal Edwards and a small team of young people who work on web-based content. The platform was created on 2 November 2006, and its origins in urban music. Most of the content can be seen on its own YouTube channel, or on the official SB.TV website and includes freestyle raps and music videos.
