Octavian wins BBC Sound Of 2019

Octavian has beat the likes of Grace Carter and Mahalia to be crowned the winner of the BBC Sound Of 2019.
The 23-year-old French-British star – whose real name is Oliver Godji – has become the first rapper in 15 years, when 50 Cent topped the annual poll, to be honoured with the prestigious accolade.
He told the BBC: "That’s lit. I don’t even know how to feel right now … Mum, I made it!"
A panel of 136 music experts, including Radio 1 DJs, artists such as Ellie Goulding – who won in 2010 – and 2018’s winner Sigrid came together to narrow down the finalists and pick the overall winner.
Octavian – who released his 2018 mixtape ‘Spaceman’ to critical acclaim in September – has previously been compared to Drake and even received the praise of the ‘In My Feelings’ hitmaker for his dancehall-influenced sound, and he’s vowed to make 2019 a "loud" year for his music.
Octavian said: "I get inspired and I try to make a new sound every day. It’s going to be a very loud year for me. Loads of music, loads of visuals, loads of albums."
King Princess, ‘Why Her Not Me’ hitmaker Grace Carter, slow thai and RosalĂ­a also made the top five.
Dermot Kennedy, Ella Mai, Flohio, Mahalia
and Sea Girls were also contenders in the longlist.
Annie Mac, who unveiled the winner on her BBC Radio 1 show, commented: "BBC Sound Of is always a wonderful opportunity to get a snapshot of the new music landscape in the UK and this year is really interesting. 6 of the 10 artists are women. And we have two rappers in the top five! I am delighted that UK rap music has got such great placement in the list – Octavian is a truly original and exciting artist, pushing the boundaries of the genre and it’s great to see such a progressive artist getting such a huge accolade."
