Music lawyer Richard Antwi, who also founded Full & Bless Management and Levels Entertainment, has died. He was 38. In various capacities, Antwi was an early supporter of numerous artists who went on to find success, including Tinie Tempah, Wretch 32, Lethal Bizzle and Mr Hudson.

“I don’t think I’ve cried in a long time”, wrote Lethal Bizzle in an Instagram post paying tribute to Antwi. “Thank you for everything you done for me, Richard. You believed in me when no one else did. You was a big part in changing my life around. I dunno where I’d be if Statik didn’t introduce us. You’re a very special person, the UK music industry is forever in your debt, you’ll be truly missed”.

Meanwhile Tinie Tempah’s manager Dumi Oburota also paid tribute, saying: “Today is a sad, sad day. One of our brightest, hardest, articulate, wise, warm and calm leaders of our culture has left us. Richard, you have always from the jump been someone I looked up to [and] bounced ideas off. Always the one to call and say well done. Like a big brother! There are not many people like you in this world and that’s why you are truly going to be missed. My sincere condolences to you and your family. You made us PROUD brother. May your soul rest in perfect peace”.

The cause of Antwi’s death has not been made public.
