10-year-old Akai wins Sky1’s Got To Dance (VIDEO)

Ten-year-old street dancer Akai Osei won Sky1’s Got to Dance contest on Sunday night.

Akai, from Orpington, Kent, was crowned Britain’s Best Dance Act and scooped a £100,000 cash prize.

After six acts performed in the main final, Akai was voted through to the top three alongside ballet dance group The Box and street dance troupe Jukebox Juniors.

All three acts then performed their routines from the semi-final stages of the competition to secure votes to determine the show’s winner.

As host Davina McCall announced Akai had won, he said: “This is amazing! It’s been the best night of my life.”

Akai, who has only been dancing for a year, said he wanted to spend some of his prize money on a new mobile phone.

He added: “I also want to give money to charity.”

Diversity, featuring the show’s judge Ashley Banjo, also performed during the finale.
