“It was not really my idea to audition for the voice; my friends pushed me into doing it. When I was registering, I did not think I was going to win because I had auditioned for several reality television shows before I became the winner of The Voice Nigeria. I auditioned for Project Fame from Season Five to Nine. I went for Nigerian Idols auditions from Season Three to Five. I went for X-Factor as well. I have gone for so many auditions. Whenever I went for auditions, the judges would tell me that I was good but not yet ripe for the stage. Some would tell me I am good and I would go back home expecting their calls but they never reached out to me. “Regardless of what they told me, I did not stop pursuing my dream because where I come from, we do not stop till we get what we want. Music is life to me, it is the only way I express myself. Saying that I would stop pursuing my dream means that I would stop living,” Idyl said.
Talking about his childhood, Idyl said, “My childhood was amazing and I learnt a lot of things that has helped me with life. I come from Bayelsa State and there are a lot of talents in that state but people do not know. I moved to Lagos about six months ago and this has happened to me. I came to Lagos to do a six months music program at MUSON Centre and pursue my career in music. The lowest point of the competition for me was when I was put up for eviction. During the times I was on probation, the whole scenario weighed me down a bit. I later picked myself up and kept pushing.”
But even as he won the reality show, Idyl said it still feels like a dream.
“Although I have been the winner of The Voice Nigeria Season Two for a short while, my life has really changed. I am beginning to get used to being a star. I go out now and people ask me for auotographs, it is very strange to me but I would get used to it,” he said. THINK YOUR FRIEND WOULD BE INTRESTED?
