Cadet has sadly died in a car accident aged 28

We are devastated to hear that Cadet has passed away.

Blaine Cameron Johnson, 28, better known his stage name Cadet, was a passenger in a taxi this morning when it collided with a van in Betley, Staffordshire. He unfortunately died at the scene. His family shared the news via a post on his Instagram account:

“We The Family of Blaine Cameron Johnson otherwise known as Cadet (Underrated Legend) would like to share the sad news that during the early hours of 9th February 2019 he passed away as a passenger in a taxi, en route to a performance at Keele University.

“Right now we the family appreciate your patience and will share with you any information as and when we can. Thanks for your support in advance. Love the Johnson Family #cadetcadet #imbuff #underratedlegend #ripcadet.”

Cadet had been enjoying arguably the best stretch of his career before this news emerged. His song ‘Advice (feat. Deno Driz)’ has currently spent 20 weeks in the charts, he’d just been booked for Wireless Festival and songs like ‘Trendy’ and ‘Pumpy’  only helped to grow the buzz around his name. It seemed like things were finally coming together for him before this awful news arrived.

Various people have paid tribute to Cadet’s passing online:
