J Hus, whose real name is Momodou Jallow, was arrested in International Way just after midday on Thursday, June 21.

The NME and MOBO award-winning rapper lives in Stratford, according to police.

He appeared in front of Thames Magistrates’ Court on Friday, June 22 and will now appear at Snaresbrook Crown Court on July 20.
