In May 2009 Diversity took the UK by storm by winning Britain’s Got Talent, beating Susan Boyle in front of a 20 million live TV audience, in what was the most watched TV program in the UK for over six years.  Their diverse eye-catching routines won the hearts of the nation and forced Simon Cowell to describe them as “sheer and utter perfection”. In 2010 the group performed live to over 300,000 people. They have performed in the Royal Variety Performance, were the first dance act to perform on Top of the Pops and the first ever to perform outside No.10 Downing Street for the Prime Minister. Formed in 2007, Diversity now consists of eight members from East London and the Essex area. Diversity are one big family, made up of two sets of brothers ranging in age from 16-27: Ashley and Jordan Banjo, Sam and Mitchell Craske. They are complemented by four of their best friends: Terry Smith, Ike Ezekwugo, Warren Russell and Perri Luc Kiely.

Ashley Banjo, the group’s leader and choreographer, has been dancing since he was 5 years old. In March 2012, Ashley and the group signed a two year exclusive deal with Sky 1 where Ashley is a judge on the hit show Got To Dance and hosts his own show, Ashley Banjo Secret Street Crew. Spurred on by the group’s motto ‘Dream, Believe, Achieve’, they are a remarkable example of what can be accomplished with hard work, dedication and belief.
