Grand finale performance
For the grand finale, DSL continued what he had always done by delivering two masterful performances.
The first had him performing with a mentor. His happened to be Epixode and it was an effortless delivery.
For his second performance for the day, DSL came out to sing his own song titled Boyz Pe Cho and he got the whole auditorium on fire.
The judges on the show, Reggie Rockstone, Richie Mensah, Adina Thembi, and Kwabena Kwabena, were all of the opinion that DSL already had a hit song on his hands.
Watch below DSL's performance of Boyz Pe Cho as shared on TV3's Instagram page:
DSL won the ultimate ahead of rapper Kofidential and singer AJ who came second and third respectively. Singer Ely and rapper Wise B took the fourth and fifth positions respectively.
Just like DSL, the other finalists took home handsome cash prizes as well as impressive deals from the promotion of their works.
DSL's win did not come as surprise to many people who had followed the reality show from the beginning. And for Gabriel Myers Hansen, an entertainment writer for Music In Africa, it was a well-deserved victory.
"I followed the whole show and DSL has been brilliant. His charisma and delivery have always been on point. It is no wonder that he emerged as the number one.
"He really deserved it and if he is managed very well he is going break out as a big music star."
