The Voice UK winner Mo Adeniran confident of beating show 'curse'

Team Jennifer: Mo Adeniran

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.
