A 21 year old Nigerian singer, Mo Adeniran, has emerged the winner of the 2017 edition of The Voice, United Kingdom.
Mo saw off competition from both Into The Ark and Jamie Miller to be crowned this year’s winner, with the latter being eliminated halfway through the show.
Adeniran who worked night shifts at a hotel prior to the show, came to the show with his best friend, Max Vickers, who made it through to the semi-finals. He beat other contestants with his rendition of Iron Sky which had the judges turning their chairs. His victory left him in shock while his mentor, Hudson, burst into tears of joy.
Speechless after the results were announced, Mo said:
‘Thank you everyone at home, just want to say thank you to Jennifer and all the coaches.
‘An amazing thank you to the most phenomenal person I have ever met, thank you Jennifer.’
