Moment 19-year-old stabbed YouTube music star to death

Chilly footage has emerged of the final moments of a YouTube music star’s life before he was stabbed to death with a ‘fearsome’ sword outside a city shopping centre.

Keany Kissingou-Mabiala, 20, from the St Ann’s area of Nottingham, was on the phone to his bank when Mazin Abdelmonim, 19, attacked him ‘out of the blue’ in front of dozens of shoppers. 

Abdelmonim stabbed Keany twice in the chest before the 20-year-old took several steps and fell to the ground outside Victoria Centre, Nottingham, on October 12 last year.   

Despite the efforts of the emergency services, the young musician was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Abdelmonim, who did not know the victim, was found guilty by a jury at Nottingham Crown Court and was jailed for life, with a minimum of 20 years, on June 4.

Yesterday, CCTV released by Nottinghamshire Police showed Abdelmonim running away from the scene while holding the large sword in his hand.    

Abdelmonim was arrested the next day after police were able to trace him using a phone he had dropped at the scene. 

His co-defendant, Davarnay Parris, 18, who was also present during the attack, had previously pleaded guilty to possession a knife and possession of cannabis.

CCTV showed Parris running onto a nearby bus after he was refused entry into a taxi.

He was later arrested in front of shocked passengers on the bus.

Parris was found not guilty of murder and given a conditional discharge for two years.

Police said that Keany, whose songs have been played tens of thousands of times on YouTube, was targeted ‘out of the blue’.

Detective Inspector Steve Wragg said: ‘Keany had his whole life ahead of him. He had a promising music career, he had dreams and aspirations.

‘They were taken away from him when Abdelmonim attacked him out of the blue using a truly fearsome weapon.

‘He was minding his own business walking through a busy city centre street in the middle of the day.

‘It’s truly tragic that this happened and a man is going to pay the price for his reckless stupidity.

‘One person has lost his life and another has thrown his away in this incident. The impact this will have on each of their families is unimaginable.

‘Our thoughts are with Keany’s family who have been supported by specially trained officers throughout this investigation.

‘The one thing to take away from this is to send a clear message to people who carry knives – if you carry one, you are likely to use it and this is the result.

‘If you use it, we will arrest you and you will go to prison, it is as simple as that.

‘If you are worried about a friend or family member who may be carrying a knife, please speak to them and help them understand just how serious the consequences are.’
