  Lemar clinches five-album deal
Updated 01 April 2003, 18.29

Lemar wins 5 album music deal
The smooth-voiced runner-up of Fame Academy, Lemar Obika, has signed a five-album deal with a music company.

He's the last of the final three students to sort out a contract.

The winner, David, and second placed Sinead both have singles out already.

And even Ainslie who didn't get through to the final three has already had a song in the charts.

Lemar has had to wait for a record deal since December last year, when he was voted off the show.

'The best singer'

But things are on the up for the talented 24-year-old who's been snapped up by Sony, the company that launched Dido's career.

Nick Raphael who works there says: "I signed Lemar because he is the best of the singers from all the television shows."
