Highly touted singer-songwriter Michael Kiwanuka turned up at BBC Radio 1 this morning, as he was announced by Zane Lowe as the winner of the coveted BBC Sound of 2012 award, to speak with Zane about his journey and perform his single “Home Again”.

The frequently prophetic accolade (which in recent years has predicted the rise of Jessie J, Ellie Goulding and Adele) is awarded based upon predictions from industry tastemakers about the artists whom they believe will be successful in the year to come.

The top five were revealed throughout the week and included US singer-songwriter sensation Frank Ocean, rapper Azealia Banks and dubstep producer Skrillex as well as Swedish electro duo Niki & The Dove.
