Artistes laud Ola as UK X Factor run ends

"GUT­TED!!! Not the re­sult we ex­pect­ed or want­ed but this has been an ex­tra­or­di­nary and fun jour­ney for us. Our aim was al­ways to por­tray So­ca mu­sic to the WORLD and I think we suc­ceed­ed to an ex­tent."

This was the mes­sage from for­mer Groovy So­ca Monarch Olatun­ji "Ola" Year­wood on his so­cial me­dia pages fol­low­ing his elim­i­na­tion from the UK X Fac­tor com­pe­ti­tion yes­ter­day.

Year­wood was vot­ed out of the com­pe­ti­tion de­spite hav­ing a spir­it­ed per­for­mance of Jig­gle It, which he wrote days be­fore the fi­nal, on Sat­ur­day.
