Home / Unlabelled / Nigerian journalist, Ore Oduba wins UK Strictly come dancing competition
The 29 year-old Oduba and his professional partner, Joanne Clifton, beat former Eternal singer Louise Redknapp and Hollyoaks actor Danny Mac in the finale.
Speaking after the result was announced, Oduba said he couldn't believe he won
“I cannot believe it, we did not even consider this [winning], not even for a single week of this.”
He also thanked his wife, Portia for mentoring him and his parents for coming all the way from Nigeria to watch him perform. He said
“She’s supported us so much and just been my absolute anchor, and my mum and dad just being here, they’ve sacrificed so much, both of our parents have sacrificed so much for us in our lives, so for them to be here and see this, the most unexpected moment of my life, is just incredible.”
