A close friend and fellow member of New Street Records, said: “He was a ray of sunshine whose laugh was contagious and would light up any room he was in.

“He was funny, intelligent, always had a joke ready and never took things too seriously.

“He was a massive fan of music and film, his ‘favourite album of all time’ was Doggystyle by Snoop Dogg.

“He was genuinely just one of the nicest guys.”
