Exauce and Brown had been involved in a fight on the day before his death, but the exact reasons for the disagreement are still not known, according to Scotland Yard.
Det Insp Rita Tierney said: “Yet another young life has sadly been lost due to knife crime.
“While there was no evidence that Brown intended to commit murder, the carrying of a knife equipped him to inflict serious injuries that resulted in manslaughter.
“This has been an harrowing and complex case and I hope that the efforts of my officers in compiling a strong case, bring Exauce’s family a measure of comfort now that his killer has been jailed.
“Our thoughts are with them as they continue to grieve.”
