XFactor 2012: Jahmene Douglas gets £30k for secret gig

Jahmene Douglas (X Factor 2012)

X Factor star Jahmene Douglas is set to earn £30,000 at a secret gig this Christmas.

It's been claimed that the XFactor 2012 runner up has been invited to perform a Russian millionaire for his eight year old daughter over the festive period.

It'll be a lovely Christmas present for Jahmene too, we're sure!

The singer announced he had been signed to Sony Music last week, but Jahmene was reportedly offered a six-figure deal even before the final.

Runner up Jahmene followed winner James Arthur, Union J and Ella Henderson in being signed to Sony Music, seemingly to RCA records who signed last year's runner up Marcus Collins.

The official X Factor Twitter account revealed last week: “@JahmeneDouglas and @Ella__Henderson have both signed for Sony. Congratulations!! #xfactor.”

Jahmene later confirmed the news, tweeting himself: “Just announced on @reallorraine that I’m now signed to SONY. God is good 🙂 thank you all for getting me to where I am ! #muchlove ! xx”

He added: “Eeek .. My excitement always takes time to kick in :-p but I think it’s slowly slipping in just what’s in store for me 🙂 woooo xx.”
