Jonathan Okigbo, a personal trainer, was cleared of the murder charge but was convicted of manslaughter.

Mr Uzoka was signed with London's Premier Model Management agency and counted catwalk star Jourdan Dunn among his friends.

Mr Uzoka had just landed a film role before he was murdered by his less successful rival, Koh's trial at the Old Bailey heard.

His two friends were convicted alongside Koh.


While the pair feuded on social media, the tipping point seemed to be when Koh started claiming he had slept with the girlfriend of Uzoka, Ruby Campbell, who is also a model, according to BBC News.

In January, Koh sent Uzoka a message challenging him to a fight and turned up with two friends, The Guardian reports.

Koh stabbed Uzoka in the chest during a confrontation in west London's Shepherd's Bush on January 11.

The defendants took a minicab and confronted Mr Uzoka and his flatmate Adrian Harper outside their address.

"I had no idea and did not expect that knives would be used and I would not have gone out if I had thought knives would be used".

Sentencing will occur on September 21 and George Koh potentially faces a life behind bars as a result of his conviction.
