Two teenage rappers who tried to murder a pregnant 15-year-old girl for getting in the way of their careers were jailed for a total of 32 years today.
Brandon Jolie, 19, who made an album with chart-topping grime star Tinchy Stryder, wanted the victim killed to stop her having his baby. He recruited fellow musician Kingsley Ogundele, 19, during a six-hour online chat after complaining she was 'trying to f*** up my life.' The pair arranged to lure the victim to her death at the Regents Canal in Islington, north London.
Ogundele then battered the girl over the head with a metal pole, punched and kicked her and pushed her into the water.
She only survived because a brave passer-by interrupted the attack as Ogundele held her head under the water.
Tour guide Andrew Hall was commended for his bravery at the Old Bailey today as the pair were sentenced by Judge Paul Worsley QC.
