Hypo, who recently got engaged, had reportedly got into a ‘trivial row’ at the party, being held in a large marquee, before being fatally stabbed, reports the Sun.
Hours before his death, the leading figure of the Mashtown rappers collective filmed himself being driven in a Bentley on the way to the event in an Instagram story shared with his 23,000-plus followers.
Scottish songstress Emeli and Hypo dated for around a year before splitting in 2017, but are said to have remained friends.
In March 2016 they enjoyed a trip to Jamaica together, with a source at the time claiming he had given the Aberdeen-born star a ‘whole new wave of inspiration.’
