Harry Uzoka was stabbed in the heart in what prosecutor Richard Horwell convinced the jury was a premeditated act by a rival model obsessed with the deceased.

Uzoka was stabbed, and collapsed and died in the street outside his home.

Koh denied murder, claiming he had two knives because he was scared Mr Uzoka and his friends would beat him up.

An Old Bailey jury has found two men George Koh and Merse Dikanda guilty of the murder of British-Nigerian model Harry Uzoka.

He was signed to London's Premier Model Management and had worked for brands such as Mercedes and Levis. A personal trainer, Jonathan Okigbo, had his murder charge dropped but was convicted of manslaughter.

He had recently landed a film role but became annoyed by "the less successful copycat Koh", the court heard on Monday.

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

Mr Uzoka, replied: "Come Shepherd's Bush".

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.

Both men were armed, Uzoka had a dumbbell bar and Koh wielded a knife in each hand.

He added: "George Koh arranged to go and see Harry to sort out the situation in which he said "let's fight" and took two comrades across west London".

Koh faces life behind bars when sentenced September 21, the Mirror said.
