George Koh has been found guilty of fatally stabbing Nigerian model, Harry Uzoka, in the heart.
According to Metro UK, the 24-year-old Louis Vuitton model reportedly had become obsessed with more successful Nigerian model Harry Uzoka, 25, in the months leading up to their violent fight.
Their fight first started on social media after Uzoka called out Koh for being a “fake”, and warned him to stop being a copycat. “Leave my name out of your mouth, it’s that simple. I’ve never spoken bad of you in any way, so this is wild,” Uzoka reportedly said in a direct message to Koh.
Things soon degenerated after Koh bragged about sleeping with Uzoka’s model girlfriend, Ruby Campbell. Both men scheduled for a place to put the paws on each other–the venue was outside outside his London home on 11 January.
From the footage which is available on social media, the pair fought; Uzoka was armed with a dumbbell, while Koh had a knife in each hand. They kissed and swung at each other, and Koh ended up stabbing Uzoka in the heart.

Speaking in court, prosecutor Richard Horwell told jurors that Koh “plainly had an obsession with Harry Uzoka. he continued, “[Koh] even suggested to one witness that they were on a similar level in the modelling world. And that was not true. Whatever was going in Koh’s mind … was festering into an unhealthy and toxic mix.’’
Koh, who modelled for Louis Vuitton, faces life behind bars when sentenced on 21 September.
Harry Uzoka was described as Britain as “the country’s most famous black model,’’ and had worked for top brands including Mercedes and Zara.
