A test contender who passed up a colossal money prize – in light of the fact that judges asserted he misspoke “Tony Hadley” – has been granted the cash after a U-turn by the radio broadcast.

At the point when Singaporean man Muhammad Shalehan was denied the $10,000 prize (£5,760; US$7,060), the Spandau Ballet vocalist sent a video of help.

However, the radio broadcast stayed inflexible Mr Shalehan wasn’t right – as of not long ago.

On Friday, Gold 905 said they were “profoundly heartbroken” and granted the cash.

“Since Tony Hadley has said that Mr Shalehan said his name effectively, who are we to dissent?” the station said on Facebook.

Mr Shalehan – a dad of three, with another infant due in August – told the BBC he was “so stunned” however “so glad”.

“I was unable to have done it without the assistance of Mr Tony Hadley,” he said.

What was the test discussion?

On 16 March, Gold 905 – a station possessed by a Singapore media monster – started the “Superstar Name Drop” test.

Players needed to recognize 14 big names, each expression single word of the expression: “Gold 9-0-5, the station that sounds great, and causes you to feel great.”

It was difficult to distinguish even one big name – not to mention 14. Be that as it may, by tuning in to others’ answers, audience members could – over various weeks – sort the riddle out.

Mr Shalehan called multiple times, and endured to air twice – however didn’t find the solution right.

On 21 April, he at long last idea he had every one of the 14 answers – just to be told he scored 13.

However, on 6 May, another guest said precisely the same answers – and was granted the $10,000.

At the point when Mr Shalehan scrutinized the choice, the station said he had misspoke Tony Hadley on 21 April (see cut further down).
