The Voice 2017 winner Mo Adeniran has high hopes of beating the show's 'curse'.
To date The Voice UK champs have yet to have any real chart success but Mo - the first winner of the show on ITV - is hopeful that will change.
After winning the series on Sunday he's been signed to Polydor Records and will head straight into the studio this week to record a mini album in time for Easter.
"Every show has the so-called curse and people seem to think it will stay around forever," Mo said yesterday. “I am motivated, I am passionate and this is what I have wanted to do my entire life. It might sound big headed but I don’t think there has been an artist like me on The Voice."
He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “My life has prepared me for this career so I am not worried about the curse. I feel like in a year we will look back on this conversation and I will say ‘I told you so’.”
And Mo added: “It is all exciting. I have been waiting to get some stuff down, everyone is really eager to help and push me in the right direction. I feel like I am in good hands and I am not worried about anything.”
Mo has already released one single which has cracked the Top 5 in the charts based on downloads.
The song - a cover of Unsteady originally by X AMBASSADORS - was performed live on Sunday night's final show and is currently at Number 3 on iTunes at the time of writing.
It's not technically a winner's single and it remains to be seen if it it will appear in the Official Charts this week.
Rather than a proper winner's song, this year the show has instead decided to release a full winner's EP which will be out by the end of the month.
ITV will also be doing its bit to help promote their efforts by featuring them in a 'Winner's Story' special.
The one-off programme will be broadcast around the same time the EP is made available to purchase, expected to be Easter Sunday.
