Ed, 31, has yet to comment on the tragic death despite Jamal starting his singing career on SBTV.

Sharing an old photo of the couple standing side by side, the Shape Of You star wrote that he was “silent” about the news.

“I didn’t post anything because I can’t find the words,” Ed wrote in the caption. “I can’t answer because I don’t know what to say.

“Jamal is my brother, his light shone so brightly. He only used it to illuminate others and never asked for anything in return.

“The light of the stars shines for millions of years after they are gone, and his will will continue to illuminate every dark moment, we are all witnesses to his power.

“I wouldn’t be here without him, professionally and personally. There will never be anything close to what it is, but I am so grateful to have existed in its orbit.”

“My brother, come on,” Ed signed the emotional post.

Ed and his wife Cherry Seaborn joined hundreds of mourners in west London last night to pay tribute to Jamal Edwards.

Jamal went out of his way to help Ed when he first started his career – when the Joker and Queen singers appeared on SBTV.

Eager to pay tribute to the entrepreneur who tragically passed away this past weekend of a heart attack at the age of 31, Ed and Cherry laid flowers at a mural in Acton, London.

It is understood that Ed personally interacted with Jamal’s 52-year-old mom Brenda Edwards to offer his support in any way he could.

A viewer said: “Ed and Cherry came to pay their respects Tuesday night.

“He kept a low profile and no one bothered him. After all that Jamal did early in his career, it was important for him to be there.

“They stayed on duty for about 15 minutes before heading to Brenda.

“He told Brenda that he would support her in whatever she needed.”

In a statement following her son’s death, Brenda said: “It is with deepest heartache that I confirm that my beautiful son Jamal Edwards passed away yesterday morning after a sudden illness.

“Me, his sister Tanish and the rest of his family and friends are completely devastated. He was the center of our world.

“Jamal has been an inspiration to me and many others. Our love for him lives on, his legacy lives on. Long live Jamal Edwards, MBE, MBA, PHD.”
