Michael Kiwanuka is officially the most exciting thing about 2012. Here’s why.

Have a look at this name: Michael Kiwanuka. Say it out loud, see how it feels, then get used to it. Because he has just topped the BBC Sound Of 2012 poll, which means he’s been tipped to be one of the stars of this year.


Why would someone say that? Oh, we don’t know, it could be something to do with the soulfully charismatic performances of his stunningly captivating music. (He was handpicked by Adele to open for her, but then she got sick so had to cancel, stink)


His debut album Home Again is due to be released in March. So for now we will make do with these live renditions:


Here’s a good taste, 3 songs, including the stellar single ‘Home Again’ (and a nice rendition of ‘Silent Night’, because it was filmed in December).




And here’s the official video for ‘Home Again’, because what else are you going to do today, work?
