18-year-old orphan emerges winner of Lagos Got Talent competition!

18-year-old, Ojo Ogunlaja a.k.a Mr. Gula, a 100 level student of Sociology at the Lagos State University, has emerged winner of the first edition of Lagos Got Talent competition.

Ojo, who represented Epe zone alongside 11-year-old Opeyemi Ishola, another rapper, beat other finalists who had earlier emerged from zonal auditions which originally produced 250 talents.

Contestants at the finale included a pair of contortionists, three rappers and a group of dynamic dancers.

While expressing his excitement about winning, Ojo revealed that he had lost both parents – in his family of seven – at a very young age.

According to him, their deaths served as his main motivation all through the competition.
