Destiny Competed On Britain’s Got Talent When She Was 14

Why Destiny Was On Below Deck Mediterranean
Below Deck Mediterranean season 7 fans wondered why Maltese pop star Destiny ended up on superyacht Home. The charter guests’ preference sheet didn’t request her and they didn’t know who she was before performing for them.
“When watching the episode on demand I saw (at the end) that Visit Malta gave a considerable amount to Bravo. It was in tiny print on the bottom during credits,” on Below Deck Med fan noted on Reddit. It’s likely Visit Malta, as part of promoting the island nation, organized getting Destiny to perform on the show. “I wonder… how much does her music performance cost Bravo and is it considered a product placement?”
Regardless, the charter guests and crew loved her performance on the superyacht. Fans also became instant fans.
“I’ve never heard of Destiny Chukunyere before but I got chills when she started singing, she’s so talented,” said one Below Deck Med fan.
