She posted an emotional tribute for the 21-year-old on Instagram, where she vowed to "honour" his name "everyday."

The expectant mum wrote: “Takayo my sweet beautiful boy. All I can ask is why over and over again. You were the most kind-hearted, loving, funny and caring person.

“I’m sat here with sore eyes and a heavy heart as I’ve cried consistently for the last 12 hours while carrying your unborn son.

“I will remind him daily about how great you were as a son, brother, boyfriend and friend too!"

"The love I have for you will never stop and I will honour your name everyday.

“I will look after your sisters to the best of my ability. They loved you so much. We all did.

“I held your hand yesterday for the last time as you lay there lifeless and baby T kicked me straight away and it broke me.

“It’s just not fair. We live in such a cruel world. I’m so angry yet keep being told I have to stay strong for the baby.

“The support you had at the hospital yesterday from family and friends was so lovely. I only wish you knew how loved you really were.

“I love you wholeheartedly and I’m so glad I get to share something so special with you and I know I’ll see you in him everyday.”

Ambulance services were called to tend to Takayo in Ladbroke Grove, west London, before he was rushed to hospital and later pronounced dead.

Takayo had recently released song 'Flamenco Dance', which amassed more than half a million views on YouTube, reports The Mirror.

He also had nearly 11,000 monthly listeners on Spotify.

Manager Chris Patrick took to social media using the musician's Instagram account.

He wrote: "2 years ago a young 19-year-old man came from Bristol to meet me at my studio with his dad, his name was Takayo Nembhard AKA TKorStretch.

“That meeting took us on a journey…we recorded some great music together. His talent was endless and I can tell you guy he was close to greatness!

The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan tweeted that he was "sickened" by the fatal stabbing and called for anyone with information to come forward to police.

"Violence has no place on our streets and we are doing everything in our power to root it out," he said.

"…There is no honour in staying silent."

The Met Police imposed a section 60 order within the carnival area and its borders in West London after the event turned chaotic.

It started at 9.24pm last night and is in place until 1am on Tuesday.

Dr Alison Heydari, Commander of Local Policing, said: “Regrettably, on Monday evening we saw a number of violent incidents and a 21-year-old man has lost his life.

“Our thoughts are with his family as they come to terms with their terrible loss."
