“People are now getting to know me as Idyl the artiste, not just the winner of The Voice” – this was a statement excerpt from Idyl’s interview that really stuck.
Most times, show competition winners are hardly ever regarded as worthy competitors in the Nigerian music industry. It’s like as if they have a whole lot more to prove considering their uber-slim chance at actually becoming successful stars in the music industry.
While Daniel Diongli akaÂ Idyl, winner of TVN s2 aspires to break the jinx, he chats on The Grill about his bigger hopes doing music especially now that he has made it to the spotlight. We also get to find out more about his official music debut titled “Better Love” from the stable of Universal Music Africa; why he chose to sing about domestic violence; his open jealousy for the Wizkid vibe; his stance on the morality of the Big Brother Naija show; and the subject of females (which is a source of concern to some of his fan circles) seeing as he refers to himself as the ladies ‘Idyl’ man.
