Hundreds line the streets for Bristol rapper who was stabbed to death at Notting Hill Carnival
Hundreds of people attended a funeral service in St Pauls in Bristol on Friday (14th October) for an 'immensely talented and popular' rapper who was killed at Notting Hill Carnival.
Takayo Nembhard was just 21 years old when he was stabbed in West London in August. He later died from his injuries in hospital.
People lined the streets to pay their respects to the 'charismatic and charming' young man was also an expectant father.
The service was then held at Elim Church with school friends, family, musicians and teammates wearing his favourite colour green in his honour.
Pastor Steve McEwen said: "For any young person to want to really honour the memory of Takayo the best thing they can do is not carry a knife and choose life. There's help you can get in these situations."
Fondly known as TK, Takayo left his mark on Bristol. After the service, his parents paid tribute to him.
His father Vincent said: “Me and him were very close, we were like good friends, we could sit on the phone and talk for hours. I was his biggest supporter in everything he did, from football to music”
His mum Sandra added: “We’ve had good moments, we’ve had bad moments but because of the love shown through everyone else it's helped carry us through."
