A Ghanaian DJ in the UK, Elyon Poku, known professionally as Nana Banger, died last weekend after being stabbed to death during an argument which erupted at a party.
Nana, 20 years of age, was at a house party in Stamford Hill, North London, when tragedy struck.
According to multiple reports, Poku and friends were at an 18th birthday party when pandemonium broke out around 1am.
The fight ended up with multiple people suffering stab wounds, including a 17 year old boy and Nana Banger – but the Ghanaian died later despite both being rushed to hospital.
According to the Independent, police have arrested three suspects on suspicion of murder — a 16-year-old boy and two men, aged 28 and 29 – whilst another suspect is being held for affray.
Police have also indicated they plan to speak to more than 200 witnesses from the party.
Narrating what happened, Jordan Henry, a friend of the birthday boy, told the Metro;
“It was an 18th birthday party of one of my friends and the invitation just went round to too many people and over 100 people showed up.” he said.
“It was posted on social media and everyone showed up. The neighbours said they saw two boys fighting outside and then one of them who was stabbed ran back inside.
“Once everyone knew what it was they started running and screaming down the street, it was like a riot. It was crazy.” he added.
Manchester United defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah, currently on loan at Fulham, was a friend of Nana Banger and mourned him after news of his passing came out.
“RIP to you my brother…love U may god bless U @nanabanger.” Fosu-Mensah, who also has Ghanaian roots, wrote on social media.
