Salieu, 25, was recorded by CCTV using a tree branch to hit a victim of a gang attack, who was later hospitalized for 10 days.

He was found guilty of possessing a bottle as an assault weapon.

Salieu, who was named the BBC Sound of the Year 2021, told the court he smashed and swung the bottle in self-defense.
