He reigned victorious on The Voice UK on Sunday night – culminating a nail-biting four months of powerhouse performances.
After months of stellar performances, battle rounds and public votes, UK born Nigerian citizen, Mo Adeniran was crowned the winner of The Voice UK 2017 during Sunday’s live finale.
And hot on the heels of his big win, Mo Adeniran spilled all about the chaotic finale – in particular, referencing his abusive foster upbringing, which ‘he wouldn’t change for the world’, that served him in staying strong throughout the competition.
Chatting exclusively to MailOnline, the 21-year-old singer, who previously opened up about being saved by social services as a youngster, proved no ill will to his former foster carer – even admitting that he has ‘a lot of love for her.’
Mo, who beat Welsh duo Into The Ark to win the popular singing series, confessed: ‘I think my life experiences have made me a better person.’
Speaking further about the five years following his adoption at age 3, he continued: ‘I wouldn’t change it because it’s made me a more understanding and well-rounded person.
‘I don’t have any hate for her. We may not see eye to eye, but I actually got a lot of love for her,’ he continued to reflect on his life following his admission back into care.
Drawing further inspiration from his own positive outlook, Mo – whose debut single Unsteady has already soared to no.3 on iTunes – confessed that he had no time for ‘anger’ – placing his emotional focus on the people who love him.
It came as no surprise to see he scooped the win on the night, as he has long been the bookies favourite.
After his performances, his mentor Jennifer reasoned: ‘If that is not a representation of what The Voice is about then I don’t know what is. It’s timeless and it’s not something that comes about all the time.’
