A man has been charged with the murder of the brother of rapper 21 Savage as he reportedly took shopping to his grandmother.
Terrell Davis was stabbed to death in Brixton Hill, south London, just before 6pm on November 22.
It was reported that the 27-year-old had been visiting his elderly relative when he bumped into an old friend and was stabbed.

Mr Davis – a drill rapper known as TM1way – had been taking some shopping to his grandmother when he got into an argument with an old friend, who suddenly lunged forward and stabbed him, a family source said.
Mr Davis and 21 Savage – who was born in Plaistow, east London, before emigrating to the US as a child – have the same father, Kevin Emmons.
The Grammy-award winning artist wrote on Instagram: ‘Can’t believe somebody took you baby bro. I know I took my anger out on you I wish I could take that s*** back.’
He also posted a picture of him and his brother as young boys – as well as a series of more-recent images of Mr Davis.
The source said: ‘They are brothers. They used to speak on the phone quite a bit and on WhatsApp. I don’t think Savage has been back to Britain for a while because he’s had some legal problems in the US.’

Atlanta-based rapper 21 Savage, 28 – whose name is She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph but who also goes by the surname Emmons – was arrested by US immigration officers last year due to his visa expiring in 2006.
He was brought to America by his mother when he was a seven-year-old child.
The 28-year-old artist was released from custody after paying a $100,000 bond.
The source added: ‘He’ll be devastated, however, the whole family are.
‘Terrell was a good guy, he used to live on the estate but had moved away.

‘But he was round visiting his grandmother yesterday and had gone to the shops for her as she’s elderly and we are in the middle of a pandemic.
‘He was coming back to the house when he saw an old friend. This was someone he’d known for a long time.
‘They started arguing over something and then suddenly he stabbed him. It was completely out of the blue.
‘Terrell didn’t have any enemies that I knew of and he wasn’t involved with any gangs. He just focused on his music.
‘He was really good rapper and was on the verge of doing big things. He wanted to be like his brother. Everyone is in shock.’
