THE big brother of Thornton Heath teenager Ashdon Muirhead has made a second video in memory of the 14-year-old.

Emmanuel Marshalleck, a rapper from Thornton Heath known as Eaze, has written song Be Free with his group Money Never Sleeps (MNS) urging people to "be themselves".

The 19-year-old's little sister, known to friends as Ashdon Jazz, died on November 15 last year. There were suggestions at the time that she had been bullied.

Emmanuel said: "The song is about being free, being yourself. Social media makes everyone compete with each other. People forget to be themselves a lot."

The video shows Emmanuel with fellow MNS rappers Realo and Chubbz gathered at Pollards Hill with Ashdon and Emmanuel's friends. They lit candles and wore R.I.P Ashdon t-shirts.

Emmanuel said: "Ashdon would have loved it, to have seen so many of her friends and mine."

He also paid tribute to Ashdon in another video featuring footage from her funeral released two weeks ago. The teenager said music has helped him deal with the months since Ashdon's death.

"It's given me a way to get things off my chest," said Emmanuel.

The siblings mum, Patricia Hewitt, features briefly in the video which at the time of writing had over 7000 views on YouTube.

Emmanuel said Ashdon's family have been touched by the support they have received since Ashdon's death.
