The entertainer went home with the $20,000 grand prize and a promotional partnership with international music conglomerate Sony Music Entertainment (SONY).

He said, “Seriously, I am proud to be the front runner of the entire thing and proud to be the person that is now the flag carrier for the new Bahamian sound. I am floored and honoured and will do my best to represent The Bahamas.”
