A friend of rising music star Maxsta has paid tribute to the rapper's
14-year-old brother, who was allegedly found dead this morning.

really good."

Atitebi also said he was feeling really sad for his friend: "It is a really
bad time for him now," he said.

Signed to Sony Music, Maxsta, whose real name is Ian Koromah, shared the
tragic news of his brother's death on his Twitter account, announcing: "My
family and I have woken up this morning to find my little 14 year old
brother dead. My lifes never ever gonna be the same again [sic]."

ANNOUNCEMENT: Maxsta shares sad news with fans

Atitebi, who said he has known Maxsta for seven years, told The Voice like
many, he did not know what had caused the death of the 14-year-old, who
lived in east Ham, London.

Atitebi said: "I am devastated to be honest. I literally spoke to him
(Maxsta) around 4.00am this morning. We were having a conversation on our
blackberries literally until 4.00 am this morning and I am waking up and I
am hearing this."

Atitebi said: "When he woke up to messages from people asking about Maxsta¹s
brother, he thought they were being silly. I was saying what's wrong with
you? and then his sister put a message up about RIP to my little brother
and then they have turned their phones off since. No one's heard from them
since."

Among the celebrities sending condolences to Maxsta,18, was fellow rapper
Bashy, who wrote on his Twitter account: "Please say a prayer for @itsMaxsta
& his family. May the universe guide them through these tragic &
heartbreaking times."

writing: "My thoughts are with you brother".

One of his many fans added: "I feel really bad when I read this but
@itsMaxsta my prayers are with u and your family now he stay in a better
place let's be strong for him."
